Upcoming Gear S3 watch will come in a Classic variant like the Gear S2


Last updated: August 9th, 2016 at 12:53 UTC+02:00

It’s no secret Samsung is preparing the launch of its next, round smartwatch, unsurprisingly called the Gear S3. Now, a trademark application confirms the device, like it predecessor, will come in a Classic variant as well.

Last year, Samsung launched the much-praised Gear S2, which is sold in a regular as well as a classic version with the latter definitely being the nicer looking device. This year, Samsung is set to mimic this scheme, at least to some extent, by launching a Gear S3 Classic, possibly alongside a previously spotted Gear S3 Frontier variant.

The necessary paperwork for protection of the accompanying trademark was filed with the South Korean intellectual property authorities only a few days ago, leaving little room for doubt in this matter.

Recently, we exclusively confirmed the Gear S3 will come with a rotary bezel, and an extensive array of sensors measuring, amongst other things, atmospheric pressure and altitude, as well as a speedometer. We expect its official launch at the IFA trade show in Berlin, which starts September 2.
