Samsung to announce Gear S3 on August 31

In true Samsung fashion, the mobile manufacturer has begun teasing the next generation of its circular smartwatch, with the company stating it will be ready to “talk about 3 on 31st August,” hinting that the launch of the Gear S3 is on the horizon.

The experience is set to unfold at 6 p.m. CET in Berlin, which is 1 p.m. EST, and for those who cannot attend in person, Samsung plans to host a livestream of the unveiling on its website.


The Gear S3 will reportedly follow similar design lines to the Gear S2 and sport a rotating bezel.

As for hints stemming from the teaser video, it looks like Samsung might add voice commands to the wearable as the company places emphasis on the word “talk.”
