Galaxy Note 3 and 'Gear' watch tipped for 4 September again

Samsung's two most-anticipated gadgets are mere weeks away, according to fresh reports.

Samsung's two most-anticipated gadgets will debut in mere weeks, according to fresh -- and entirely believable -- reports.

Both the Galaxy Note 3 and the Samsung 'Gear' smart watch will enter officialdom in early September, according to Korean site asiae.co.kr. The original report isn't in English, but even through the fog of Google Translate it's possible to discern the fourth as the expected date of the grand unveiling.

Not only has 4 September been rumoured before , but it makes perfect sense. That date is two days before the start of the IFA trade show in Berlin, which is where the last two Galaxy Note devices have been announced.

In 2012 Samsung held its own press conference two days ahead of IFA, showing off the Galaxy Note 2 as well as enough new gadgetry to make any tech writer despair of their evening's plans. As such, it's entirely likely that we'll see the 'Gear' smart watch shown off at that very same shindig, so mark your calendars now, tech fans.

Note 3 and 'Gear' watch

Not much yet is known about the elusive Note 3, though leaked sketches and specs point to a Xenon flash and a 5.7-inch, 1080p screen, while a sneaky snap that surfaced last month hints at a very thin bezel .

The smart watch meanwhile -- tipped to be called 'Gear' by a trademark filing  but apparently codenamed Altius -- will likely communicate with your Android smart phone, showing messages or perhaps displaying map information. Leaked screenshots suggest a tiled, Windows Phone-esque interface.
