PARIS (AFP) - South Korea's Samsung Electronics will unveil its new Galaxy Gear "smartwatch" early next month, ahead of Apple's iWatch, Bloomberg news and a fan site said on Saturday.
The Galaxy Gear, which will allow users to make calls, access e-mail messages and even surf the Internet, will be launched on Sept 4, said the sammobile.com site.
The world's top handset maker will also launch its new Galaxy Note 3 on that day, the site reported.
Bloomberg said the first version of the smartwatch would not have a flexible screen.
