The new Samsung Gear S3 update has brought improved battery charging algorithm. According to the changelog, update will solve overheating issues and improves battery charging time. This is the similar update, which has received 2 weeks ago on Samsung Gear sport and on Gear S3 last month. New Samsung Galaxy watch with Tizen 4.0 is now in the market and the current update on Gear S3 shows Samsung still cares about older devices. The new update is 11.79MB in size and the firmware number is R760XXU2CRH1/R760OXA2CRH1. The first change in the update is improved battery charging algorithm and the second change is its improved security.
Still this is the Tizen 18.104.22.168 software version and looks like users have to wait some more weeks or months to get next Tizen version. The last major update for Gear S3 and Gear Sport were released in May when both got some additional features. Now Samsung Gear S3 customers are waiting for new Tizen 4.0 update for their devices.
Samsung has launched latest and advanced Tizen 4.0 version on Galaxy Watch and it is slowly releasing in major countries. If I am not wrong then it will take some time to Samsung to introduce new version on older Gear smartwatches.
The new version is available for both Gear S3 Frontier & Gear S3 Classic watches. To get latest update on Gear S3, go to Settings -> About Gear -> Update and check for latest update. The update is now rolled out in all the countries. If you haven’t received new update then wait for a while to come in your country.
