Verizon was already unfashionably late to the Samsung Gear S3 US launch party when it discreetly unveiled the smartwatch would arrive alongside the Galaxy S8 and S8+ phones on April 21 on the nation’s largest wireless network, but that date has also come and gone.

Big Red’s customers interested in a 4G LTE-capable wearable device are still not very close to getting their hands S3 frontier or classic on their wrists, as both standalone call-supporting gadgets will apparently become available around the end of June.

VZW’s own website confirms the most recent delay of the two Tizen-powered products, which could now see daylight on America’s number one carrier just a few months before the presumed international announcement of the Gear S4 next to the Galaxy Note 8 phablet.

But that’s probably not the worst part for Verizon. What’s worse is AT&T and T-Mobile picked up the cellular-enabled Samsung Gear S3 frontier way back in November 2016, and T-Mo even followed it up with swift LTE S3 classic sales.

Sounds like hefty discounts should be in store, although that’s generally not how Big Red does business. T-Mo currently charges a grand total of $400 for either smartwatch style, while AT&T can do $350 or even $250 with a two-year contract.
