As many of you know, the Tizen Experts team loves software/firmware updates for our Tizen-based devices, and one has just got an update. The Gear S3 Frontier LTE model number SM-R765 has got a small, but hopefully important, update that measure in at only 35MB.

According to the small changelog, the update has general performance nad device stability improvements, but also adds a new unknown feature: Jansky wearable. At this stage, no one is able to tell us what this feature actually is and how it will manifest itself on the wearable device. Firmware updates for the Gear S3 have slowed down at the moment with the last one being several months ago now.

Just to recap, this update is NOT for the non-LTE Gear S3 version model number SM-R760, but most likely it will receive it soon. Usually we have updates to the non-LTE version devices first and then the LTE versions, so this is something new.

Have you updated yet? Noticed anything new that we haven’t covered or do you actually know what Jansky wearable is? Reach out to Team Tizen Experts on [email protected].

    Haven’t ever had an update on my LTE Frontier since I purchased it last November. Must only be outside of the US.

      I had to use the gear app on the phone and look for updates manually to get the update.

      • Hwn Rohrbacher

        I’ve done that manually at least once a week. Never had an update. Ever.

        • jaded past

          I have model number SM-R765T and I have service through T-Mobile. I am in NY state. I did the download about an hour ago.

            I have a SM-R765A through ATT. In North East Texas. My software version is R765AUCU1APJ8.

          • jaded past

            Mine is now R765TUVU2AQA6. From what I have found online AT&T hasn’t released the update yet. Maybe you should give them a call and see if there is an ETA.

            I wont hold my breath. ATT is one of the worst at releasing software updates. Which is why I only buy unlocked and unbranded phones now.

    Good News Guys!!

    All you have to do is google Jansky

    Jansky:
    A world altering blowjob that makes you go uhhhhhhh. Also can be called a blow janksy. Which means the same old thang just slobbin on a johnson till the dragon tail shoots fire.
    That girl gave me a great jansky it made my eyes water and my pecker shake. Or hey Chelsea Whiteham you tryin to give me a jansky? — HuneybakedWhiteham, (2012, April 09). Jansky. Retrieved from URL http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Jansky

    …actually a Jansky is a unit of measure of spectral flux density. 1 Jansky = 10^−26 watts/ meter^2/ Cycle/ sec. Multiple fields use it but it is mainly used in radio astronomy. It is basically a high resolution measurement for faint signal in the electromagnetic spectrum.
    …sorry to burst your bubble.

    It is disappointing that the update does not include a improvement on S Voice or replacing S Voice with something better.

  • David Phillips

    I suspect that the non-LTE version hasn’t got it yet because it somehow requires a working LTE component, whatever, “Jansky Wearable” ends up being anyway.
