Samsung is close to introducing a successor to the Gear S2.

The company unveiled that smartwatch last November, but because we live in a high-tech age of annual product life cycles and never-ending consumerism, Samsung has been diligently working on yet another wearable for you to buy. Although the Korea-based electronics manufacturer hasn't confirmed anything yet, a new rumour has popped up with some details about when you can get your hands on the next Gear watch.

The unveiling of Samsung's Gear S3 will happen in September, according to SamMobile, which reported that Samsung plans to debut the Gear S3 at this year's IFA in Berlin. The trade show begins 2 September and ends 7 September. An exact unveil date has yet to be confirmed, though Samsung previously used the stage to launch its flagship Galaxy Note handsets. However, the next Note will be unveiled in August.

That means the Gear S3 will be free to steal the show IFA 2016. Keep in mind Samsung launched the Gear S2 at last year's IFA. Check out Pocket-lint's Gear S3 round-up for more speculation, including what the device might feature.

SamMobile also said the Gear S3 should retain its predecessor's rotating bezel.
