With just over a week left for the commencement of IFA 2014 Berlin event, a recent rumor coming the Sony way says that the Japanese giant could possibly launch its 3rd iteration of smartwatch – The Sony SmartWatch 3 at this event. If these rumors are to believed, the Sony Smartwatch 3 will have the same design like its predecessor Sony SW 2 with a square display.
The actual specs will most like be announced at the IFA 2014 event by the company, but according to current rumors, this new smartwatch from Sony will have a trans-reflective display providing sufficient visibility even in sunlight. Moreover, the smartwatch is also expected to have on-board Wi-Fi and wireless charging on-board. The smartwatch is likely to be IP certified making it water-resistant.
A bit of disappointment would be that the Company is still reluctant to offer Android Wear as its OS, but will have its own OS running on the gadget. One thing is sure; Sony has a tough competition ahead!
