Samsung is expected to unveil Galaxy Note III and Galaxy Gear smartwatch on 4 September at Samsung Unpacked event prior to IFA 2013 in Berlin. A rumor suggests that Galaxy Note 3 will be available for sale in the same month while Galaxy Gear smartwatch will be available in October.
First originated from SamMobile, one of their sources mentioned that Galaxy Note 3 will begin shipping in week 36 that is September 2-8 followed by Galaxy Gear smartwatch four weeks later, week 40.
The exact release dates are not known and there is no information about which countries will get them first. However, it is expected that it will be released in multiple markets at the same time. We know from past experiences that Samsung releases its devices right after launch, but according to the publication, a delay of a week or two may be expected.
Interestingly, the rumor also reveals that Samsung is dropping the 16GB variant of the device, available with 32GB and 64GB storage space. This is due to the fact that 16GB seems to be too less as it offers very little usable space for the user.
Despite having a very decent track record, we must not put all our eggs in one basket. Samsung Unpacked Event is scheduled for September 4 and that is the day we will find everything we need to know about the availability and pricing of the device.
