LG has yet to make any official announcement about their upcoming G Watch R2, but details about it have appeared online, according to reports.
The successor to the G Watch R is apparently in the pipelines, Business Korea reported on Tuesday. There are claims that the G Watch R2 will apparently be the company's first 4G LTE smartwatch, and it may come with a similar design to the existing LG G Watch R. Yes it will support LTE, but other details about the watch are missing at this moment.
The new wearable watch is expected to be showcased at the annual Mobile Developers Conference (MWC) in February. Furthermore, rumors suggest that the G Watch R2 could possibly come with the similar specifications as the current model; however, the difference between the two could be the connectivity difference.
The current-generation G Watch R support 3G and Wi-Fi connection, but offers no calling function. Again, we don't have much information on the G Watch R2, but it's interesting to see how 4G LTE connectivity makes such as small sized wearable useful.
The LG G Watch R was first unveiled at this year's IFA Berlin tech show. The device has been gathered positive reviews from the mainstream media, thanks to its circular display and impeccable design.
Talking about its specifications, the G Watch R sports a 1.3-inch Plastic OLED display (P-OLED) with a resolution of 320 x 320-pixel resolution. The watch uses 100 % of the display, claims LG. It is powered by a 1.4GHz Snapdragon processor coupled with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of on-board storage.
The G Watch R also offers a 410mAh battery fitted inside. The watch is designed to run for up to 30 minutes in one meter of water, thanks to IP67 ratings. The device runs on Android Wear platform.
The G Watch R is not yet available in India. It could be priced as high as Rs. 21,000, when it goes on sale in the coming weeks.
