After originally making its debut back in October 2015, the Gear S2 Classic will finally hit the shelves of multiple US carriers next month.
The Samsung Gear S2 Classic will be sold by AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon (sorry, Sprint customers). Samsung says that it’ll be available starting March 11, but so far only T-Mobile has committed to that date. T-Mobile has also revealed its pricing for the Gear S2 Classic, which will be set at $0 down, 23 payments of $16.67, and one final payment of $16.58. Full retail pricing will be set at $399.99.
Because the Gear S2 Classic includes 3G/4G connectivity, you’ll need to add it to your carrier plan for cellular access. T-Mobile customers will be able to do just that for an additional $5 per month.
The Gear S2 Classic’s spec list is largely similar to the Gear S2, which launched last year. The Classic has a 1.2-inch circular Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 360x360, a 1GHz dual-core processor, 4GB of storage, and 512MB of RAM. Also included is a 300mAh battery, an IP68-rated battery for dust and water resistance, and Samsung’s Tizen operating system. The big difference between the Gear S2 Classic and the Gear S2 is that the Classic has ridges around the outside of its case, whereas the Gear S2 is smooth.
