LG Unveils New Watch Urbane Smartwatch with LTE

LG recently¬†unveiled the first Android Wear smartwatch that doesn’t require a phone to connect to the Internet.

The second generation of LG’s Watch Urbane now comes packing 4G, 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, allowing users to leave the house without their phone.

This kind of autonomy is lacking in competing smartwatches from Motorola and Apple, which don’t include cellular connectivity. Samsung’s new Gear S2 runs on Tizen and does have a model with 3G connectivity.

LG says the new Watch Urbane will be available first in the United States and Korea, followed by markets in Europe, CIS, Asia and the Middle East. Details including price and date of availability will be announced locally at a later date.

In a press release, the company says that “cellular enabled features will vary” across Android and iOS.

At a press event, LG also unveiled a new flagship smartphone, the V10, which comes packing a 5.7-inch screen, and a secondary 2.1-inch inset display at the top of the phone for displaying notifications and other information.

The V10 also features a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 3000 mAh batter, 4GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 808 processor.
