Samsung’s next installment of the Gear S smartwatch is almost here as the official announcement of an October launch has already been confirmed. Until now, there’s been no precise release date, but we’ve uncovered the info on what Canadian consumers have been waiting to see. The Canada Samsung Gear S2 and S2 Classic is coming, but slightly later than originally expected.
It’s been confirmed, the Canada Samsung Gear S2 and S2 Classic release date will start on October 2nd. Preorders for Sammy’s new smartwatch lineup have been spotted on Best Buy Canada’s online store along with the official launch price for each model.
Those in Canada can pick up the Gear S2 smartwatch for $399 Canadian dollars which is the equivalent to about $300 USD. The premium version will set you back about $429 Canadian dollars which is about $324 here in the US.
For those waiting for the Samsung Gear S2 3G model, no official release date or price is available as of yet. It’s expected the 3G model won’t become available for those in Canada for about a month after the initial launch which seems to be the case for those in other markets worldwide. The 3G model will allow users to connect and stay connected without having to be tethered to a smartphone and will require its own data plan to use the 3G features.
All models share similar specifications which include 1.2” Super Amoled display with a resolution of 360 x 360, but are slightly different when it comes to visuals. All three models will also be featured on the Tizen operating system which are compatible with most Android smartphones running Android 4.4 or higher and features at least 1.5 GB RAM.
