Samsung Gear S3 is here with GPS and LTE
Welcome to the another episode of BrightTitan News. This episode is about the introduction of Samsung Gear S3
Last year’s Samsung Gear S2 was a decent model. The new model, Samsung Gear S3 keeps the basics but adds new features.
The biggest change is the screen size. Gear S3 has a 1.3-inch display which is a little bit bigger than last year’s 1.2-inch display. Samsung said that they made this change in order to follow the latest “trends”.
Other features that are worth mentioning is the built-in microphone and GPS in all models. These features were only absent on the 3G version of Gear S2. Also, instead of 3G, new generation supports LTE. On top of these connectivity features, Gear S3 also includes NFC chipset for payments.
In terms of design, you still have two choices; frontier and the classic model. While classic model has a stainless steel body with more formal look, the frontier one is more sporty. Other difference between the models is that fact that only the frontier model supports the LTE.
The watch, by the way, provides 4 day of battery life which is a huge improvement over the last generation.
There are also some changes on the Tizen coming with Samsung Gear S3. Like the external design, the ui looks very similar to the previous generation but there are some tweaks that increases the user experience.
The watch will be available on the end of year but there is no details about the pricing.
