The 4G LTE-enabled Gear S3 Classic smartwatch will soon be available via AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless. Availability and pricing depend on each wireless carrier and should be unveiled soon.

Samsung Gear S3 Classic has been around for a while without offering 4G LTE connectivity, but now those days are almost gone. Samsung Electronics America, Inc. announced earlier today the imminent arrival of the 4G LTE-enabled Gear S3 Classic smartwatch.

According to the official press release, "The LTE version of the Gear S3 classic will be available from AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon." This smartwatch will offer one-number solutions so calls can be made without having to use a new phone number for the wearable - a feature supported by all three carriers mentioned above. The usual features of the non-LTE Gear S3 Classic are all present, including the fitness tracking capabilities. 

Samsung Gear S3 Classic LTE comes with full Samsung Pay support and is expected to carry a price similar to the 4G LTE-enabled, $399 USD Gear S3 Frontier. Starting today, Samsung takes part at the Baselworld 2017 trade show, where the company has three concept watches based on the Gear S3 on display.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
