Good news for anyone in the US that wants to strap a big ol’ screen to their wrist: the Samsung Gear S will be making its way Stateside this fall.
Samsung just pinged us to announce that the Gear S will be sold by AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon this fall. Pricing and availability will be announced at a later date. One thing we do know now, though, are the specs that make the Gear S tick:
Samsung has released several Gear smartwatches to date, including ones that are powered by Tizen and Google’s own Android Wear. The Gear S offers the biggest screen of them all, though, and it’s also got its own 3G connection so that it can make calls without needing a smartphone at all times. It’s nice to see that all four major US carriers will offer the Gear S, giving most folks in the US the chance to strap Samsung’s newest wearable on their wrist. What will be interesting is, given its built-in 2G and 3G, seeing how the carriers plan to charge for the Gear S on a monthly basis. Are you interested in the Samsung Gear S?
