LG has announced an second generation LG Watch Urbane LTE, and this time it comes packed with Android Wear. Touted as the first LTE capable Android Wear device, the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition also features some hardware upgrades over its predecessor.
This is not LG’s first Android Wear device, that distinction goes to the
LG Watch Urbane that was announced at Mobile World Congress this year LG G Watch. LG had also announced a LTE capable smartwatch at the same time in the first generation LG Watch Urbane LTE; although it ran on a customised version of WebOS.
The LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition retains the Snapdragon 400 processor, while decreasing the available RAM to 768MB. Storage has also been kept at 4GB. The display has been slightly bumped up to 1.38-inches, although it maintains the 348ppi display. What is puzzling is the downgrade of the battery to 570mAh, although this could be considered an upgrade if it was compared to the 400mAh battery in the 3G Watch Urbane.
The LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition will be available first in the United States and Korea, followed by markets in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Details including price and date of availability will be announced locally at a later date.
