AT&T to carry the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier

AT&T to carry the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier
The just announced Samsung Gear S3 Frontier Tizen powered smartwatch already has at least one home in the U.S. as AT&T says that it will be offering the wearable. The Gear S3 Frontier will offer connectivity to AT&T's 4G-LTE network, allowing you to make and take calls directly from the watch. In addition, you will be able to go online and browse the internet from your wrist without having to pair with another device. Just for the record, Samsung is beta testing iOS support for the watch.

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.

Who will buy a Samsung device after the serious Note 7 explosion problem?

Millions will do, just like the millions that kept buying iProducts after the numerous cases of exploding iPhones. Now back to your baby crib.

Plus 1 bro. Don't chastise one, and turn a blind blind eye to the other.

That's the trolling Apple fans do on Samsung articles.

They stopped selling the device, do you understand what this means? I think they will put a fire extinguisher in the box. I will not answer to your last sentence. It proves your frustration baby.

which is good, means that they are willing to accept if there is a mistake and take action, not all companies are doing that... still we are not 100% sure how those devices exploded, I've seen bunch of picture, nothing else.. I mean.. you can debate forever, but I can also make some pictures with any brand after I'm taking the device out from the oven.. as an example. I am waiting to have the note released in my area and see if 5.7 it's suitable for me, if yes.. I will buy it of course.. as well as the gear 3 which I was waiting for some time. Hard to offer something better with up to 4 days juice.

Yes, it means Samsung takes action while Apple simply blames everyone but themselves.

Samsung admitted it was happening and is checking over the supply units. Consumers would see Samsung would fix it and start buying the phone again

Well at least Samsung didn't tell their loyal fans they are holding it wrong and is looking into it.

Now c'mon dude! This issue is way more synonymous with iPhones than Notes. I'm all for a good jab, but not a hypocritical one.

Yes, and I don't understand why he's trolling this issue, when Apple iPhone is known for exploding and burning.

Because Samsung makes him so angry. The nerve, many products that are great.

I actually haven't read the articles about it. I like the pictures I've seen, but I've got to read up and see it in person.

I'm good with my S2, it gets most of the features in a firmware update anyway.

Anyone who wants a great, powerful watch that doesn't look like a square toy.

Since when has a Lithium Ion battery never swelled or exploded? It's not always about what you read on the news dude.

I love this watch honestly. The only one I see so far I'd use as a primary phone.
