For all those who had been waiting for LG to give something new to its fans, well the company certainly has not one but two new treats for you. They finally unveiled their latest two developments – a quirky smartphone and a Smartwatch, Android wear. The watch is quite nice looking and appealing. But, how the smartphone can be quirky? Well, surprisingly, the phone has two screens – which is quite unusual – and two selfie cameras.
LG Watch Urbane is the second edition wearable offered by this South Korean Company. At first glance, the Watch gives the impression that it is quite elegant and far better looking than those Android wearables already present in the market. The company picked up some style cues from its predecessors and worked on making it better in design and also improved it’s functionalities and fundamentals.
When it comes to looks, the watch is quite similar to the company’s original Urbane smart wear. It has been tweaked up a bit. The O-PLED has been upgraded to 1.38 inch circular display, it has a 480 x 480 pixels screen resolution and pixel density goes all the way up to 348ppi.
Some internal improvements and upgradations have also been made. The biggest one is the installation of a 4G LTE chip along with cellular connectivity. No other Android wearable contains this feature; this is the very first you will find in Android wearables. The battery has also been amped up a bit.
Now, moving on to the doubled screen smartphone, the V-series has a new device in line. The V10 smartphone is the first launch in the pre-existing V-series. The unusual thing about the phone is the second screen that sits right above the main screen – a 5.7 inch display – and that second screen always remains on.
You will always be updated about the time, weather and date even when the main display is off. But when the main screen is in use, you can use the second screen to select apps to run. While you watch a movie or some show live, the notifications will pop up on the small screen and not the main one. Now you can watch anything you want in peace.
Another appealing thing about the phone is the set of front cameras that have a separate lens each. The LG Company quite unashamedly admitted that the second front camera was added for one sole purpose only – to take selfies. Quite amusing!
They have been positioned in a way to allow you to either take an 80 degree photo or a wider one. So if you’re one of those people, this device is perfect for you.
Other than this, the device has everything a good Android handset should have. The device will be available in a few colors for its fans to choose from.
