Samsung's big news today was two big phones, but it has even more tech to come shortly: a new smartwatch that's going to be unveiled next month. At the end of its presentation today, Samsung teased the Gear S2, a circular smartwatch with an unfamiliar UI that looks like it could turn out to be a pretty stylish package. The Gear S2 will be unveiled in Berlin on September 3rd — that'd be a year to the day that we first took a look at the original Gear S, a big, rectangular smartwatch running Tizen. Chances are this one will be on Tizen too; that's probably a downside, but at least the faces look cool.
