October 5, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

It’s just over six months since LG revealed their Watch Urbane smartwatch, but they are up with their second edition in the series.

LG Watch Urbane 2 has been announced by the South Korean manufacturer with some hefty improvements and additions, including LTE support in its smartwatch successor.

That makes it the first ever Android Wear-running smartwatch to be arriving with LTE integration.

LG hasn’t confined the connectivity with LTE, there’s also 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. The support for network integration will just ease the device to work alone, rather than putting all the dependence upon your smartphones.

Stepping down to the remaining hardware improvements, LG has managed to raise the display to a larger 1.38-inch P-OLED screen, which also has a better resolution of 420×420 pixels now. The previous edition packed a resolution of only 320×320 pixels.

Watch Urbane 2 is powered by 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon400, and is powered by a RAM of 768MB LPDDR3 plus 4GB internal storage. There’s also an improved battery of 570 mAh, which now comes with Power Save mode.

There is no availability on the pricing and release, but LG hints that it will arrive first for the US markets, followed by the Korean market and subsequently to the rest of the world. It will be made available in the shades of Space Black, Opal Blue, Luxe White and in Signature Brown.

Besides the smartwatch, LG has also unveiled a 5.7-inch Android device called the V10. The premium device comes with a QHD display, and is loaded with high-end hardware which includes Snapdragon 808 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB internal storage.
