We’ve heard rumors in the past that Samsung would release a new variant of it’s smartwatch as a standalone device. It would work on 3G networks with the ability to make and take calls all on it’s own. That all sounds great even though it’s not something everyone would want. It does however seem like it’s coming.

According to the Korean Herald, Samsung has filed a patent with that description under the name Gear Solo. Also revealed in the filing is that the device would likely only be available in Korea although it could make appearances in other countries.

What do you think? Would you buy a Gear if it was available as a standalone device? Let us know in the comments.
