Samsung Gear S was announced ahead of the IFA 2014, and is a little different from most of the smartwatches available in the market. The wearable comes with a SIM card slot, which makes a standalone device which can receive and make calls without the need of a smartphone.
Such a device also deserves to get its own plan on carriers, and it seems it will. The folks at Phandroid managed to obtain an internal Sprint document detailing the Gear S service plan.
As per the document, Sprint will offer a service plan which will come with a $9.99 price tag, and will include 1000 minutes of free voice calls, 1000 free text messages, and 100MB of free data. A $10 add-on to a Family Share Pack plan will allow calls, free texts and data to be shared among other devices.
It’s also expected to hit other major carriers in the US, including Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T, and it’s likely to come with its own plan on other carriers as well.
Samsung Gear S comes with a 2-inch Super AMOLED display sporting a resolution of 360 by 480 pixels, a dual-core 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, 3G support, IP67 certified making it dust and water-resistant, 400 mAh battery and runs Tizen as its operating system.
There’s no confirmation from Sprint, but we’ll update you as soon as the carrier announces its plans for the Samsung Gear S.
