Samsung is sometimes credited for popularizing the use of phablets (smartphones with large display screens), and now the South Korean tech giant appears to be looking to make big smartwatches popular, too. Recently this week, the company formally introduced the Gear S3, its latest addition to its Gear S lineup of smartwatch devices.
Makers of Android powered devices are often criticized for taking so long to update their products with the latest version of Google’s Android mobile operating system. The biggest phone maker of them all, Samsung, is no exception to this. But the South Korean mobile giant is working to change all that by announcing that its latest phablet, the Galaxy Note 7, will get Android 7.0 Nougat before the end of this year.
Just as promised by Samsung, its Gear S smartwatch is finally made available for American customers. As a matter of fact, all four major wireless carriers in the United States are offering Samsung's wearable device. Samsung had already launched several Gear smartwatches that either run on Android Wear by Google or Tizen. But out of those releases, the Gear S looks to be the one that sells the most on account of its features and generous display screen size. A couple of months ago, the South Korean mobile manufacturer had stated that the wearable device will be offered by AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless by fall of this year. However, the company did not announce any launch date -- that is, until just over a week ago when it revealed that the Gear S will be available for purchase starting November 7th of this year.
Last month, we reported about Samsung announcing that its wearable device, the Samsung Gear S, is expected to be carried by all four major wireless carriers this fall. However, the South Korean mobile manufacturer never made an announcement regarding any launch date for the smartwatch. Now, fans of Samsung's latest wearable device finally get a release date. The company just revealed that the Samsung Gear S will be made available for purchase starting November 7th. Roughly a week from now, users will be able to buy it at AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless, as well as in any Samsung Experience Shop located in Best Buy stores. Unlike other smartwatches currently available in the market, the Samsung Gear S has the distinction of having its own SIM card slot. This means that it does not need a paired smartphone in order to receive notifications.
