Today Samsung quietly introduced a new version of their Gear S3 Classic smartwatch, building 4G LTE into it.

Previously it only offered Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for connectivity, however, from today you will be able to pick up a version with LTE, well at least in the US from AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless.

We don’t yet know about the pricing or the other worldwide availability.

Elsewhere, the LTE version is much of the same, featuring the same 1.3-inch circular AMOLED display and polished silver design, along with Tizen OS pre-installed and much more.

It also has much of the same features such as answering or rejecting calls, reading messages, and using various smartwatch-focused applications.

With LTE, you should be able to do all of this without being tethered to a smartphone. It will also come with built-in GPS functionality, an Alti/barometer, and a Speedometer.

At the moment, that’s about all that we know, however, we will be sure to update you when we hear more.
