Samsung Gear S3 Tizen Powered Smartwatch is now available for pre-order in US. Earlier this company starts pre-orders in UK and Germany, where it was sold out now. In US one of the biggest online retailer Best Buy is accepting pre-orders for both Classic as well as Frontier models both will cost you $349.99 for each.
Both the watches sport similar specs with the difference being in the band they come with and the color. The Classic variant comes in Silver color with leather bands while the Frontier variant is painted black with rubber bands for a sportier look. Another difference between the 2 is connectivity option: frontier gets the 3G/LTE option while the classic variant is stuck with Wi-Fi/Bluetooth when it comes to connectivity.
The Gear S3 has upgraded quite a lot as compared to its predecessor, the Gear S2. For starters, you have a bigger screen at 1.3″, 46 mm diameter and 16 million colors. In comparison, the S2 could only manage 8 million colors. The S2 was also smaller in size which is why Samsung has decided to continue retailing it for those of you who prefer the small smartwatch.
Another feature that debuted on the Gear S3 is Samsung Pay via both, NFC and MST. The watch is IP68 rated with a stainless steel body and a Gorilla SR+ glass which Samsung claims is as tough as sapphire.
However, according to some reports both the Smartwatches will be released sometime in mid November 2016
