LG raise the bar with the Watch Urbane 2nd Edition

LG smartwatches have seen a big success from rectangular to circular watches, and this time, LG is the first manufacturer that bring cellular capability to Android Wear devices with the Watch Urbane 2nd Edition. So here are the full specs.

Android Wear devices such as the Moto 360 allow you to answer calls from your wrist, but that’s only possible when connected to your smartphone, but with the new coming LG Watch, you will be able to use your smartwatch as a standing alone phone, beside of that, you will also enjoy 3G and 4G connectivity without needing your smartphone. For the other specs, the new Urbane will feature a better 1.38-inch round display with a 480 x 480 resolution and a 348 ppi, the device looks a lot like a normal watch, but in a bigger way! with three side buttons dedicated for navigating through apps and contact list.

Unfortunately the casing is a little thicker compared to the older version, measuring 14.2mm instead of 11.2mm, but that’s the extra space for the bigger improved battery, 570 mAh instead of 410 mAh to give you some extra hours, or days! who knows. The device is equipped with a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor and a 768 MB of RAM, along with 4 GB of storage for your photos and music.

This is the first of its kind in the Android Wear market, but not in the world, Samsung was the first one to introduce cellular connectivity to its Gear S and Gear S2 smartwatch, but that was on Tizen OS.
