Samsung Gear S3 Classic & Gear S3 Frontier to Launch in India on January 2017



At the IFA 2016 held in Berlin in September this year, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 7 smartphone along with Samsung Gear S3 Classic and Gear S3 Frontier smartwatches. Both these smartwatches will be replacing the popular Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic. Instead of Google’s Android Wear OS, the Samsung’s smartwatches come with proprietary Tizen OS. Just like its predecessor, the new Gear S3 also comes with a circular display sporting a rotatable bezel placed on the top. Almost two months after the launch, the company made the two variants of the Gear S3 available last month in most of the Western markets. Now the latest information is that Samsung will be officially launching the Gear S3 Classic and Gear S3 Frontier in the Indian market in January 2017. So stay tuned on Phone Radar for official details regarding the launch event.

Earlier: Sep 1st, 2016 – One of the most awaited piece of technology that was announced at the IFA 2016 is the Gear S3 smartwatch. Samsung launched the previous version i.e. the Gear S2 as well at around the same time last year and it soon became very popular. It had some interesting new features on the software as well as the hardware front, which makes it as unique as it is. Now on the same lines, the company has launched the new Gear S3 smartwatch as well.

This time around, we have two new addition to the range of watch. One is the Gear S3 Classic and the other one is the Gear S3 Frontier. Both of them have somewhat an identical design but they do offer some interesting features of their own. Also, this year’s watches are slightly on a larger side when compared to the last year’s variant. The first and foremost thing here is that both the models are more outdoor-friendly.

The Frontier model comes with 4G capability, which makes it capable of taking calls independent of a smartphone. It can also stream music as well. On the other hand, the classic version only has Bluetooth connection. The Frontier version comes in matte black and is the sportier version of the two, whereas the classic version is five grams lighter and offers a more classic timepiece look. With that being said, both of them are circular and has the new Gorilla Glass SR+ Protection on top.

Both the variants are equipped with a barometer, an always-on display and a battery which will last for four days. At least that’s what the company says. The Gear S3 can survive for around 30 minutes in water up to 5-feet deep and is compatible with Samsung Pay. The watch will run Tizen OS on top, rather than the Android Wear. Sales of the Samsung Gear S3 will begin in October. The exact prices are not known yet, but the Classic version is expected to be priced at about $350 & the Frontier one with LTE capability will cost you more. There are reports stating that the watch is priced at€399 in Europe. Stay tuned for more info these as we will update the thread once we have more info on them.
