Samsung Gear S3 Frontier pre-orders begin on AT&T

Samsung Gear S3 Frontier hits AT&T, pre-orders begin
Samsung Gear S3 Frontier
When purchased alongside a Samsung Galaxy smartphone with a two-year plan on AT&T, this smartwatch has a price tag of just $49.99 USD. Without the handset, it comes for $17.50 USD per month for 20 months.

Samsung Gear S3 comes just in time for the holidays for AT&T customers, although it looks like only the Frontier variant is now up for pre-order. This smartwatch is Samsung's first 4G LTE-connected one and comes loaded with Tizen 2.3.

According to Jeff Bradley, AT&T's senior vice president of Device and Network Services Marketing, the Gear S3 can act as a smart hub for home with the Digital Life and DIRECTV apps, but "AT&T is also offering the Gear S3 frontier with something no other carrier has – NumberSync. Building on our first year of success with NumberSync and the Gear S series, AT&T is providing you with a simple, network-based solution so you don’t have to juggle multiple phone numbers."

Unfortunately, the official press release does not mention the Classic variant. Those interested in grabbing a Frontier can choose to buy it for just $49.99 USD with a two-year contract and next to a Samsung Galaxy handset, but can also choose to pay $17.5 USD for 20 months while keeping their AT&T service.

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.
