LG has confirmed this week during the Mobile World Congress being held in the city of Barcelona in Spain that it has plans of bringing back its LG Watch Urbane LTE 2nd Edition in the later part of 2016, as explained by a spokesperson for the South Korean tech giant.
During the final quarter of last year, shipments of smartwatch devices across the globe have outpaced shipments of Swiss watches, according to information provided by market research firm Strategy Analytics just this week. This marks the first time that smartwatches have surpassed Swiss watches in terms of worldwide shipment volume. Big credit, of course, goes to the Apple Watch, the first and only wearable device produced by Apple so far.
It is a good bet that when you take any smartwatch that runs on the Android Wear operating system, it will feature one of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 400 series of processors. Not many people may know this, but apart from being the foremost supplier of chip sets for mobile devices, Qualcomm also has done a pretty good job in producing processors for smartwatches. The company’s dominance in that regard is about to continue with its latest announcement.
LG has decided to stop the sales of its Urbane Second Edition smartwatch just over a week after the Android Wear powered wearable device hit store shelves across the United States. As explained by the South Korean mobile giant, the reason behind the cancellation of the rollout of its newest smartwatch was an unnamed issue concerning the hardware of the wearable device.
Mark this down as another win for Android users, especially those who own, or are planning to get, wearable devices, particularly those that are powered by the Android platform. Google has officially announced that it has finally added cellular connectivity to Android Wear, the operating system that the tech giant designed specifically for smartwatches and other wearable devices.
It appears that Google is on a mission to have as many wearable devices powered by its Android Wear mobile operating system used by as many people as possible. The company is even willing to go into enemy territory in order to do so, or as suggested by early reports.
A fan of wearable devices, especially smartwatches? You might be delighted to know that there are a host of new smartwatches coming this year, or at least being unveiled soon. That is because during the upcoming IFA electronics trade show to be held in Berlin, Germany, tech companies such as LG, Motorola, Huawei, and Asus, among many others, will be announcing their newest smartwatch offerings.
