The idea of a Samsung smartwatch is far from a new one, but as we mentioned when talking about that Samsung Unboxed invite that just showed up, it’s back on our minds as something the company could be just about to announce. As we wait to find out everything on the agenda for Samsung’s September 4 event, a new trademark filing may have let the cat out of the bag for this new smartwatch, suggesting it could arrive as the Samsung Galaxy Gear.

Indeed, the trademark is classified as being for a wearable device – either a full-on watch or some sort of bangle or charm otherwise worn on the person – with internet connectivity.

Since a Samsung model SM-V700 was already spotted in Indian import logs, described as a “watch accessory,” that’s very likely what we’re dealing with.

A litany of questions remains: if this is a Galaxy device, will it run Android itself, or merely connect to Android-running hardware? Is the name supposed to refer to one specific product, or could Galaxy Gear be more of a range of accessories – all the gear you use with your Galaxy phones? And of course, the big one: will Samsung be the company to really bring the smartwatch into the mainstream? If neither Samsung nor Apple can do it, we wonder who will.
