Samsung is going to debut its smart watch on September 6 with Galaxy Note III launch. Taiwanese manufacturer will beat Apple as its iPhone event is due later in same month and no signs of iWatch in this year. Samsung also announced to release Exynos 5 Octa processor this week and to hold Samsung Developers Conference from October 27-29, 2013.

Apple's upcoming iPhone event has now become the talk of the town. As the low cost iPhone, iPhone 5S or 6 and iPad 5 are all set to release during the September event. But Samsung turns the table now as the recent news depicts that Taiwanese manufacturer is going to debut its Smart Watch with the launch of Galaxy Note III on September 6. On the other hand, a recent news just revealed the fact the Apple delayed the launch of next generation iPhone 5S till late September due to production issues. But iPhone 5 plastic models and iPad 5 will still come in early September following the launch of retina MacBook Pro in mid September. This delay will surely help Apple's arch rival.

Yet the launch of Samsung smart watch is noted as being a "Samsung Gear" smartphone accessory by Patently Apple. This is a good move to beat Apple in recent wearable device trend. As when Apple will launch its iWatch (expected by 2014), the Cupertino firm will look a follower and not a leader in the market. Currently the recently launched Kickstarter's Pebble smart watch is leading the market. But we cannot ignore the fact that Sony launched its SmartWatch a year ago and a successor model of SmartWatch 2 is also launched recently. So it can be possible for Apple to launch an innovative device rather late. Yet a lot more is expected from Samsung.

Other news for Samsung today reveals that the company will release its new Exynos 5 Octa application processor later in this week. Also the company has officially announced today to hold its first global Developers Conference in San Francisco starting October 27 till October 29, 2013. By holding Samsung Developers Conference, the tech firm joins Apple, Google and Microsoft in this area too.
