Samsung Electronics confirmed it will introduce the Galaxy Gear smart watch at a Sept. 4 event, as well the Galaxy Note III, the successor to the Note II tablet. Executive Vice President Lee Young-hee told the Korea Times that the Android-powered wristwatch will feature a "non-flexible" display. Separately, Samsung reportedly will put off the launch of a smartphone based on its proprietary Tizen operating system. The news fueled speculation that Samsung will introduce the phone at its first developer conference in October.
