LG Announces The LG Watch Urbane
LG doesn't seem to be intent on waiting for large industry events to announce their wearable products. Last year the company announced their LG G3 Stylus and the LG Watch R shortly before the beginning of IFA, and today we're seeing a similar announcement only a few weeks before the start of Mobile World Congress. Today's announcement is the LG Watch Urbane, a smartwatch that could described as a more premium version of the G Watch R.
The internal specifications of the LG Watch Urbane are the same as the LG Watch R. It's powered by Qualcomm's APQ8026 which is a quad core Cortex-A7 SoC running at 1.2GHz paired with an Adreno 305 and 512MB of RAM plus 4GB of NAND. It retains the IP67 rating for submersion in water up to 1 meter deep for 30 minutes which has become standard across all of LG's wearables. The display is also the same circular 1.3" 320x320 plastic OLED display. What differentiates the LG Watch Urbane from the LG Watch R is its premium build, with a stainless steel body, a thinner bezel around the display, and a stitched leather strap.
LG is yet to provide information about pricing or when it will be available for sale, but with MWC on the horizon we're likely to get more information about the LG Watch Urbane soon.
