Samsung officially launches the Gear S3 Classic and Frontier, US release date confirmed
As you may know, Samsung has two different Gear S3 models, both already available to pre-order in the US: the Gear S3 Frontier, and the more elegant Gear S3 Classic. Prices for both watches normally start at $349.99, though AT&T currently lists the Gear S3 Frontier as being offered for as low as $249.99.
It looks like only the Gear S3 Frontier has LTE connectivity. That aside, the Frontier and the Classic share most of their features, including circular 1.3-inch Super AMOLED screens with 360 x 360 pixels, Samsung Pay (only in the US and select markets), dust- and water-resistance, GPS, and 380 mAh batteries. Mind you, these are not Android Wear smartwatches, instead being based on Samsung's Tizen Wearable Platform 2.3.1. Nevertheless, they are compatible with most recent Android phones.
