Samsung teases Gear S3 launch in its IFA 2016 invitations

Bigwig South Korean device maker Samsung has recently sent out invitations for its IFA 2016 event, teasing the launch of the next-generation version of its Tizen-powered Gear smartwatch --- Samsung Gear S3.

The IFA 2016 event at which Samsung will likely unveil the Gear S3 smartwatch is scheduled to be held on September 1. The company's press conference at the event will take place from 11am to 12pm CEST.

Though Samsung has not released any official statement with regard to its plans for the IFA event next month, the invitations sent out by the company contain an overt teaser for the Gear S3 smartwatch.

Hinting at the upcoming introduction of the Gear S3 smartwatch at the IFA event, the invitations for the event have watch hands all over them; indicating that the next Gear smartwatch version will be officially announced by Samsung in nearly three weeks from now.

Going by the speculations about the imminent Samsung Gear S3 smartwatch, the device - like its predecessor Gear S2 - will be available in two models --- the Gear S3 and the Gear S3 Classic. In addition, Samsung might also launch a third Gear S3 variant which will apparently be a luxury model built by the company in collaboration with Swiss jeweler de Grisogono.
