LG has already entered the most amplifying segment of the Android world at the hour, the Android Smartwatches sector, with the LG G Watch. But that is not where the Korean brand is going to stop. The company is out with another smartwatch, not necessarily an android device, it runs on a new proprietary wearable platform from LG.
The LG Watch Urbane LTE is going to be the first LTE watch in the world, or so claims LG. Among the rather unseen features before, the watch comes with a Voice Over LTE (VoLTE) technology without the need for a phone, and a fun “walkie-talkie” feature to let multiple people speak at once. An emergency speed-dial system lets you make calls with just one button.
The watch looks like something you would rather wear to a workplace, it has that classic, corporate look. The watch has a round dial and a screen wee bit tinier than the LG G Watch R. One thing it does have more pronounced than the G watch R is the battery backup. At 700 mAh, it is about 1.7 times more than the predecessor. The Watch Urbane LTE has a working NFC and smart wallet, and a bevy of sensors including a, accelerometer, gyroscope, compass, atmospheric pressure, heartbeat, and GPS. One feature will use these sensors to analyze your golf swing.
Here is a brief list of specs of the LG Watch Urbane LTE we have gathered:
|Display||1.3-inch plastic OLED (320×320, 245ppi)|
|Processor||1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400|
|Memory||1GB of RAM, 4GB of storage|
|Connectivity||LTE, Bluetooth, NFC|
|Sensors||9-axis (gyro / acceleration / compass), barometer, pressure sensor, heart rate sensor, GPS|
We hope to hear more about the watch at the Mobile World Congress which is just around the corner. Excited, are we?
