    This year #Samsung couldn't wait until September for its customary IFA phablet announcement and the Galaxy Note5 got an early launch last month, joined by the #Galaxy S6 edge+. Being a no-show at the expo was out of the question, though, and the Koreans kept the #Gear S2 smartwatch to entertain the audience in Berlin, though it too was already made official a couple of days ago.

    The next-generation wearable will come in two variants - the plain, outdoorsy one dubbed simply Gear S2, and the more formally styled Gear S2 classic. Both of them circular and water resistant, the watches pack a 1.2-inch Super AMOLED display, 1GHZ dual-core processor and half a gig of RAM. The watch witnesses Samsung's continued adoption of its own Tizen OS, while competitors are all using Android Wear.

    Having an entire keynote focused on a single smartwatch (ok, technically two) sounds a bit dull so we won't be surprised to see another iteration of the Gear VR virtual reality headset. After all, the new Note5 lacks a companion in this respect. Plus, the VR Experience Zones set up around Berlin would make for nice headlines - "New Gear VR headset launched while users remotely explore Samsung's booth in VR". Beat that, OnePlus.
