Samsung official confirms Galaxy Gear smartwatch for IFA 2013

The Samsung Galaxy Gear, the company's entry into the smartwatch genre, has been outed as making its debut at IFA 2013 in Berlin next week. Lee Young-hee, executive vice president of Samsung Mobile, told the Korean Times in an exclusive interview:

We will be introducing a new wearable concept device called Galaxy Gear at our own event in Berlin on Sept. 4

We've long-expected Samsung to show us the gear at IFA this year, and Young-hee's comments cement that idea. She also states that the device will not feature Samsung's flexible display prototype that many have been waiting for, but the company was also preparing for future wearable products that may include this technology.

We'll be live in Berlin next week, and you can bet we'll be having a good look at the Galaxy Gear and anything else Samsung has to show us. Stay tuned!
