Samsung Gear S3 finally receiving One UI update at T-Mobile
Although Samsung released the One UI update for Gear S3 a few months ago, many carriers delayed the rollout for whatever reasons. Indeed, the Samsung Gear S3 is no longer a new product, but it's still one of the most popular smartwatches sold in the US.

T-Mobile was one of the carriers that didn't offer the One UI update to Gear S3 owners. Thankfully, that's about to change, so if you own a T-Mobile Gear S3, you'll finally be able to update your smartwatch.

As per TmoNews' report, T-Mobile is now rolling out the One UI update to the Gear S3 frontier. It's not a big update (around 115MB), but it's quite important since it adds many new features and improvements.
