Samsung have announced the launch of the LTE variant of the Gear S3 classic and it will be available from AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon in the US. Samsung has previously only offered LTE support on Gear S3 Frontier, the more outdoor athletic variant of the smartwatch, and the bold is seen as being a bit more business like.

Both versions offer military-grade durability, IP68 water resistance, built-in GPS, Alti/barometer, Speedometer and more features (See table at bottom). With built-in LTE data connectivity, users will be able to receive and reply to calls, texts, and also Interact with their favourite apps.

Samsung Pay is the mobile payment solution that is used and supports both older terminals with Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) and newer Near Field Communication (NFC) ones. This means that Gear S3 users are able to make a purchase with Samsung Pay at over 90 percent of the top 250 merchants across the U.S.

No information has been released regarding pricing and availability or when this LTE variant will be available in additional countries.
