Samsung Officially Opens Gear S3 And Details Used Components

Samsung was well aware that at some point, somebody will open their flagship smartwatch so they have decided to tear it down by themselves. In a press release, the company has provided us with an in-depth look of the components that make the Gear S3 smartwatch.

There was no talking about how to disassemble the watch or how easy/hard is it to repair, but rather what material and components were used. According to the press release, the watch is made from stainless steel 316L with Home and Back keys. What is interesting is that the front case of the Gear S3 functions as a radio frequency (RF) antenna. The case is also IP68-certified, meaning the device is protected from dust and immersion in fresh water up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes.
