The Samsung Gear S3 Classic with the model number SM-R775V has cleared the FCC certification suggesting that its launch is not far away. Considering Samsung’s usual naming convention, the ‘V’ at the end of the model number should be a pointer to indicate the fact that it will be launched at Verizon.
The Gear S3 Classic with the same model number alongside another one bearing model number SM-R775T was spotted paying a visit to Wi-Fi Alliance last month. As we reported earlier, the smartwatch in question should be the LTE variant of the Gear S3 Classic.
Having used the Samsung Gear S3 Classic, I found it to be arguably one of the best implementations of a smartwatch yet. Also, Samsung’s efforts on Tizen OS were quite evident. The OS, in comparison to the one on its predecessor, was nicely optimized and I must say I faced no issues whatsoever with the Gear S3 Classic.
Also, the build quality was great on the previous model, and its design can almost fool you to perceive it as a regular watch. Speaking of design, the new Gear S3 Classic with support for LTE, in all its likelihood, should retain a similar design language. At this point, the smartwatch’s launch date is unknown. But what we do know is the fact that it won’t take long until it’s made official.
