Samsung Gear S3 to receive Tizen 3.0 OS update at some point


The newly introduced Samsung Gear Sport is the only smartwatch that will ship with Tizen 3.0 OS on board. All other Samsung smartwatches are powered by a previous version of Tizen, which makes the Gear Sport more appealing.

Still, Samsung fans who already purchased the Gear S3 will be pleased to know the South Korean company plans to provide them with a Tizen 3.0 OS update at some point in the future.

Reliable sources told AndroidPit that Samsung Gear S3 will receive the Tizen 3.0 OS update, but they failed to mention when exactly it will happen.

Releasing the update before the Gear Sport might hurt its sales, which is why we believe Samsung will move in and update the Gear S3 only after its hybrid smartwatch hits the shelves.

Speaking of which, Samsung has yet to confirm when exactly the Gear Sport will make its debut on the market, but rumor has it the smartwatch will arrive sometime in Q4 for around $350.
