Samsung’s surprisingly stylish Gear S3 lands November 18th
Samsung’s latest Gear S3 that was released to the public view a few months ago is all set to be available on November 18th. Pre-orders start on November 6th and it comes in two models, Classic and Frontier. Both sport a stainless steel chassis that are IP68 rated for water resistance and 1.3-screens coated in scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass SR+. Dual-core Exynos chipsets, 786MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, GPS and 380mAh batteries that apparently last about 3-4 days between charges. Frontier has additional advantage of sending a mobile SOS through its LTE feature.
The new watches will also sport the additional advantage of Samsung Pay in-built where users can now use the feature to pay instead of swiping their credit cards every time. It also enables you to stream over Spotify and control your Nest thermostat.
