IFA 2016 is just around the corner and Samsung is expected to be one of the biggest companies in attendance. But the question now is what will the Korean company have in store for techies when the event kicks off next month in Berlin?

The easy answer to that could be the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note 7. It is the big device awaited by many though it may not be the one in focus. The reason for this is that Samsung has scheduled a separate event happening on Aug. 2 in New York.

With the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 likely already out in the open, it makes no sense to re-launch it the month after. So with the last big smartphone out, it could be the perfect time to reveal two other devices – the Samsung Gear S3 and the Galaxy Tabs S3.

Samsung Gear S3 and Tab S3 launch speculation

Belief that Samsung will be unveiling the Gear S3 comes from Antonio Monaco, another reliable tipster on numerous occasions. The Italian journalist is confident that the Korean giant will be unveiling the two products at IFA 2016.

Monaco gives his two cents on the Gear S3 via Sam Mobile. He explains that the Samsung wearable will look a lot like an ordinary wristwatch and come with a built-in GPS.

Unfortunately he wasn’t able to shed more light on the Galaxy Tab S3, a tablet that has so far offered limited info. One thing worth noting is that Samsung released an updated Galaxy Tab S2 early this year so it is possible that a high end tablet could be showcased at IFA 2016.

The Gear S3 and Tab S3 chances of launching

With consideration to the limited information tied up to the Galaxy Tab S3, it may be best to expect a Gear S3 release. With most of their outstanding products already out in the open, these two devices remain the logical leftovers for the said event.
