For some time now, we have been awaiting the launch of Samsung’s next generation smartwatch, and today we have found out that there are actually two.
Announced at IFA 2016, Samsung revealed the new Gear S3 Frontier and the Gear S3 Classic.
Both of these smartwatches are the successor to the Gear S2 smartwatch, it still features a similar design, with a rotating bezel. Samsung also revealed an LTE model for the smartwatch, which still runs on Samsung’s own Tizen operating system.
Interestingly, the non-LTE version of the Classic still features many of the same specs as the Frontier, still featuring GPS, Samsung Pay support, a 380 mAh battery, and Gorilla Glas SR+, which was announced earlier today.
Both also feature a 1.3-inch circular AMOLED display, with Bluetooth, WiFi b/g/n, an accelerometer, gyro, a barometer, a heart rate monitor and an ambient light sensor.
They also have dual-core 1GHz processors, 4GB of internal storage, 768MB of RAM, wireless charging, IP68 water and dust resistance and support for Android phones that run on KitKat or later, with support for a number of new applications for the smartwatch, with partnerships with a number of services like Spotify.
