IFA 2016 Day One: Everything You Need To Know So Far

The Samsung Gear S3 is official with Samsung having announced the new smartwatch earlier this morning during IFA, and for those who may be considering picking up this new wearable device, it comes in two flavors, the Gear S3 Classic, and the Gear S3 Frontier. Both watches feature plenty of similarities as they both offer things like GPS, NFC and MST support for Samsung Pay mobile payments, a rotating bezel for cycling through features, and IP67 certification to make the watches dustproof and water resistant. They also have their own uniqueness to them so as to cater to those who have different tastes. The more adventurous types might want to opt for the Gear S3 Frontier as it will have integrated LTE for use without a connection to a device through Bluetooth or a connection to Wi-Fi, although it does support both of those connection types. On the flip side, those who want something more traditional can forego the LTE support and just pick up the Gear S3 Classic.

While the Gear S3 may be, for many at least, the most important part of today, it isn't the only new piece of tech to look forward to as today marked the start of more than a few IFA announcements from various brands. Having said that, Samsung also isn't the only company to announce a new smartwatch, as ASUS was up bright and early and have officially announced the ZenWatch 3, while also showcasing things at the event such as the ZenPad 3S 10 which was announced earlier this year. Lenovo also had quite a few announcements today, as they officially announced the launch of the Moto Z Play here in the U.S. which will be available unlocked at the Motorola website as well as through Verizon as an exclusive DROID edition. Beyond this, Lenovo also announced the YOGA Tab 3 Plus and the YOGA Book, which is a 2-in-1 that runs on Android. In addition to the bigger devices mentioned above, there was much more announced from everyone's IFA events, and you can find the links to everything down below.
