The venue where Samsung launched the Galaxy Note II last year could be where we see Samsung’s iWatch competitor announced.
Samsung is set to “unpack” something at the IFA gadget show on September 3 in Berlin.
The electronics giant has set around an invitation to tech journalists highlighting the word “unpack” and the phrase “note the date” in a handwritten calligraphy.
Samsung has always had a big presence at IFA. Last year it brought the Galaxy Note II and the Galaxy Camera to the show, along with a bunch of Windows 8 tablets.
Considering the emphasis on “note the date” it may be possible that Samsung is bringing a competitor to the iWatch to the show.
Recently Samsung filed a trademark application for a watch like device:
“Wearable digital electronic devices in the form of a wristwatch, wrist band or bangle capable of providing access to the Internet and for sending and receiving phone calls, electronic mails and messages; wearable electronic handheld devices in the form of a wristwatch, wrist band or bangle for the wireless receipt, storage and/or transmission of data and messages and for keeping track of or managing personal information; smart phones; tablet computers; portable computers.”
For those of use not going to Berlin, Samsung will also host an event in Times Square and stream the IFA presentation on YouTube.
