AT&T to carry the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier
The Gear S3 Frontier will feature a special type of Gorilla Glass devised by Corning specifically for protection from scratches. The 1.3-inch circular screen has always-on capabilities, and features a 360 x 360 resolution. With an IP68 certification, the device will be water and dust proof. You will be able to submerge the watch in nearly 5 feet of water for as long as 30-minutes, and the watch will emerge unscathed.
The watch includes AT&T's NumberSync. This allows you to make/take calls and text messages using the same number as your AT&T smartphone, even if the latter is turned off and is miles away. Another feature will allow you to use the Gear S3 as a remote for your devices receiving content from DIRECTV. The satellite television company was purchased by the nation's second largest carrier in 2014.
As we told you earlier today, the Gear S3 Frontier features a larger battery (380mAh) that will last three to four days. With Battery Saver enabled, that doubles to six to eight days. NFC is on board to support mobile payments as Sammy is said to be working on a mobile payment service designed specifically for the timepiece. AT&T says that it will release information about pricing and availability at a later date. As soon as we obtain this information from AT&T, we will pass it on to you.
