LG Watch Urbane heads to the Google Store in 13 countries by end of April


Next on the Android Wear release schedule is the LG Watch Urbane. This evening, LG issued a press release that states the smartwatch will be available through the Google Store in thirteen countries by the end of April (or next week). Along with an unspecified date, LG did not provide a price. Also, this is merely for the rollout of the Watch Urbane and that means shipping will likely take place at a later time. It could be June before anyone gets their smartwatch.

The wait could be worth it, however, as the Watch Urbane has specifications to put it at the top of its class. The completely round 1.3-inch display has 320×320 resolution and P-OLED technology. Inside is the usual Snapdragon 400 processor and collection of sensors. Two unique feature are LG Call for viewing recent calls and LG Pulse for monitory heart rate with no pause. And, right out of the box, the Watch Urbane has the latest version of Android Wear.

Being that the G Watch R has a $299 price tag, the Watch Urbane could reach $349.

Hit the break for the full press release.

This level of curvature is also present in other LG devices like the LG Magna and LG Spirit, so the company is not exactly breaking new ground. Read more

Alleged LG Stylus, model number LS770, press render surfaces


This afternoon, an alleged press render of the LG Stylus (seen above) surfaced online. The image, obtained by TechnoBuffalo, shows the handset believed to be LG’s competitor to the Samsung Galaxy Note series. Not too much is given away by this leak, though. The biggest takeaway is that LG will continue with its rear button setup, but we already had a feeling that was the case.

The model number for the Stylus is apparently LS770.
