Samsung Gear smartwatch prototype seen in a patent filling in Korea



The rumours circling in media for the last couple of months about Samsung Electronics planning to launch a smartwatch in 2013, seem to have grounds with the latest patent filling made by Samsung at the Korea Institute of Patent Information, which shows a few sketches of a wristwatch prototype.

Samsung smartwatch will likely¬†run on a lite version of Google’s Android operating system tweaked by the OEM. There isnt much information about Gear at this time, but what we suspect is that the smartwatch could be announced in September at Samsung Mobile Unpacked event before IFA 2013 expo, in Berlin.
