Revised Tizen 3.0 update for Gear S3 rolling out now

Tizen 3.0 is the most recent major update for the Gear S3. Samsung released the firmware as part of its Value Pack Update for the Gear S3 Classic and Gear S3 Frontier last month. Firmware version R760XXU2CQK3 was originally released for the Gear S3. Samsung has now revealed that it’s rolling out a revised Tizen 3.0 update for the Gear S3 starting today.

Revised Tizen 3.0 update for Gear S3

Even though R760XXU2CQK3 is the firmware version that’s supposed to be rolling out for the Gear S3, we dug around and found that R760XXU2BQC5 is the most recent firmware version for the Gear S3 in Europe. It’s the one that was released before the Tizen 3.0 update.

Samsung Netherlands has confirmed in a statement that while the Tizen 3.0 roll out did start last month, it was halted in December. That’s because many customers in North America had started complaining about battery life issues after updating to Tizen 3.0. Samsung recently released another update for Gear S3 owners in Canada to address the battery life issue.

The company has confirmed that it has revised the Tizen 3.0 update for the Gear S3 which it has started rolling out today. The fix for the battery issue is included in this release. The update will be rolled out in phases so it will only be released to a small group of users initially before being expanded to all users early next month.

This seems useless or fake news. Not a single new country had got any tizen 3.0 since this news. Only korea usa and canada have tizen 3 updates at the moment. What the hell is wrong with samsung..are other customers not customers? Antrch giant without basic cutomer support.

What are you talking about? Tizen 3 rolled out everywhere, including Europe and here in the UK. And battery life is awful, compared to previous versions. And also has an infuriating bug where it keeps asking to set a password for Email content. Needs to be fixed ASAP

This was making me crazy too! But it’s easy to fix. Just go to Settings – Security- Gear Lock, and choose None… It won’t happen again.. 🙂

In Turkey I just got R760XXU2CQK3 yesterday and it seems to have improved battery (though mine wasn’t badly affected anyway). I don’t have R760XXU2BQC5 yet.. Are you sure these updates are not for two different S3, lte version and non lte??

R760XXU2CQK3 is Tizen 3, build-date nov 17; R760XXU2BQC5 is Tizen 2, build-date mar 17

Ok, then I have CQK3, the November version, which is the latest one. The article is incorrect then as it’s suggesting that BQC5 is the newest one, which was strange as the firmware numbers suggest it’s older.. Thanks for clarifying which is which..

R760XXU2BQC5 is, at this moment, still te most recent FW in Europe; so that’s correct in the article!
R760XXU2CQK3 is ON HOLD, and the update will have build R760XXU2CQL1

Thanks again. Well I just got 2CQK3 last night. It’s on my watch now. 🙂 So if it’s on hold how did I get it?? Lol. I think this article is not quite correct.. My friend in the UK also got 2CQK3 this morning… Doesn’t seem to be on hold there either..

The information from Samsung NL is, that the FW is ON HOLD, and new FW will roll-out.
I had also a look on the server, and the most recent FW is R760XXU2BQC5

Interesting that the 2CQK3 is on hold. I bought an S3 Frontier about a week ago (dutch model) and it has 3.0.0.1 2CQK3 on it (out of the box) 🙂
They’re not very consistent in their versioning I guess.
