Samsung Gear S2 classic 3G lands at T-Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon on March 11

Vlad, 18 February, 2016

A few hours ago, the 3G-capable version of the Samsung Gear S2 classic has been revealed to be the first device ever to sport the new eSIM - a built-in, programmable SIM that lets you connect to the network of your choice without having to acquire a dedicated SIM card first. You can thus activate the Gear S2 classic at home, being spared a trip to your carrier's closest store.

Now Samsung has announced that the Gear S2 classic 3G will become available in the US in black on March 11. It will be offered by AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon. Pricing hasn't been outed yet unfortunately. Although Samsung is calling it the "Gear S2 classic 3G/4G", don't let that fool you - it doesn't have LTE support, yet Samsung seems to think that HSPA+ is 4G; it's not.

The Gear S2 classic 3G has a 1.2-inch 360x360 circular AMOLED touchscreen, a 1 GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, wireless charging support, and a 300 mAh battery. It runs the company's Tizen-based wearable platform. It's IP68 certified for dust and water resistance, and it comes with a bunch of sensors: accelerometer, gyroscope, heart rate monitor, barometer, and ambient light detection.
