Galaxy S4 To Gain Galaxy Gear Support In October

A new report based on the words of a Samsung executive has revealed that the Samsung Galaxy S4, which is still the Korean company's flagship Smartphone (Galaxy Note 3 is the phablet flagship) will gain support for the new Galaxy Gear Smartwatch via a software update in October.

While Samsung had already revealed at IFA 2013 earlier this month that Galaxy S4 support was indeed in the roadmap, now we have a rough idea of the "when" factor. Additionally, yesteryear's flagship Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 will also gain support for the Galaxy Gear by the end of December, possibly after both devices are updated to the latest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
