LG Watch Urbane LTE with VoLTE calling and NFC payments announced

LG Watch Urbane LTE

LG has announced LG Watch Urbane LTE, few days after it introduced its LG Watch Urbane Android Wear smartwatch with metal build. This has the same 1.3-inch (320 x 320 pixels) P-OLED Display and has metal build, but it runs on LG’s own wearable platform with new UX and not Android Wear. It comes with voLTE voice calling support since it has a speaker and a microphone and also comes with NFC support for easy payments.

Other specifications are similar to the G Watch R and the Watch Urbane, including a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 SoC, 4GB internal storage and IP67 ratings for dust and water resistance, but this has 1GB RAM and packs a larger 700mAh battery for better talk time. It also offers walkie talkie-style voice chats and built-in GPS support. It has three buttons on the side, compared to one on the other Watch Urbane. These buttons would be used for quick settings and navigation. It also offers a single button on the emergency call.
