AT&T to sell Samsung Gear S3 frontier with LTE [UPDATE]
Samsung has not provided a specific date of availability nor has it spilled the prices of its latest wearables, the Gear S3 classic and the Gear S3 frontier. Both of them come in Bluetooth-only and LTE-connected flavors as well, so carriers are bound to be wanting in on the action.
Well, AT&T, carrying the 3G version of the Gear S2 and first to grab at the LTE-enabled LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition, is getting Samsung’s first LTE wearable. Specifically, the Death Star mentions the Gear S3 frontier with 4G LTE as part of its future lineup.
Ma Bell also has software value-adds to tell you about, too: NumberSync will work on this watch and the Gear S3 can even manage your DIRECTV account and remotely control your DIRECTV box. AT&T Digital Life provides control over your IoT devices around the house.
Again, all’s mum on the price tag and calendar dates, but you know how it’s like for YouTube commenters — FIRST!
Update: A Samsung press release says that T-Mobile and Verizon will also carry cell-connected Gear S3 watches while Best Buy, Amazon, Macy’s and Samsung.com will get the regular versions.
