Samsung might just introduce new flagship devices on the yearly Berlin electronics event, the IFA. It also looks like that would be the event where the Galaxy Tab 3 and Note 3 will both be unfolded, since no news on the exact date of their announcement exists yet. Furthermore, Samsung loves to introduce new products or technology on international trade events as part of their marketing campaign.
The next IFA will be held on first to second week of September and it looks to match the period or date that we heard from an insider that they will introduce these devices only on the second half of 2013.
These devices are also expected to draw in crowds as many as those who attended the S 4 unveiling last March 14th.
The Tab 3 might also have two variants, like what has been going on for a while now on the rumor mill. On the other hand as opposed to earlier reported rumors that the Note 3 will go over 6 inches, it will only measure 5.9 inches, based on the prototype that will be revealed to AT&T execs later this week.
Samsung will surely follow up on its high-end tablets and according to the rumor mill; the next to be featured will be the Galaxy Tab 3 Plus. It can be recalled that Samsung did a "Plus" device two years back with the Galaxy Tab 7.7 Super AMOLED Plus. This device made waves and customers say that it is one of the best tablets in the market.
According to the buzz, Samsung wants to take their tablets to a whole new level and compete head on with Apple's iPad and Sony's XPERIA tablet Z. With the success that they've had with their AMOLED displays, Samsung might just create a bigger tablet fit to rival its major competitors' 10-in and 11-in devices. The Korean company allegedly developed prototypes of various sizes. Furthermore, our insider thinks that Samsung will likely use their Exynos processors, if ever they do launch a bigger, high-end tablet this year.
Samsung introduced the Galaxy Gear smartwatch at IFA last year, and said it would release a second generation of the device along the Galaxy S5 this spring.
This year, Samsung has been rumored to be working on wearable glasses similar to Google Glass, supposedly under the Gear Glass name, and according to a report from The Korea Times, Samsung will unveil Gear Glass this year at IFA in September.
The new smart glass to be introduced by Samsung is a new concept of wearable device that can lead to an exciting culture of communication. The smart glass will present our aim to lead the new market with proven capability. Wearable devices can't generate profits immediately. Steady releases of devices are showing our firm commitment as a leader in new markets.
The report suggests that functionality will be similar to that of the Galaxy Gear, allowing smartphone users to view notifications, take phone calls, shoot pictures and control and listen to music, though hopefully, it will be compatible with more devices out of the box than Samsung's first smartwatch.
