Samsung Gear S hits the US next week
Samsung Gear S was officially unveiled back in September at the IFA 2014 in Berlin. What makes this Tizen OS-powered wearable special is its SIM card slot that allows it to have its own data connection and not to be entirely reliant on a smartphone companion. Now Samsung has just announced that major mobile carriers in the US will introduce the Gear S starting next Friday.
According to the official press release, "The Gear S will be available in both White and Black. AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless will carry the Gear S." Those interested will also be able to purchase it at Samsung Experience Shops inside select Best Buy locations. Although each carrier and retailer has to confirm pricing and availability details, Samsung mentioned that Gear S "will be available in the U.S. beginning next Friday, November 7."
The specs of the wearable remain unchanged. Its highlights include a 1 GHz dual-core processor, 512 MB RAM and 4 GB internal memory, curved 2-inch Super AMOLED display, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, as well as multiple sensors. We will get back to it as soon as major carrier announce their details.
