Added to LG’s slew of devices to be showcased at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015 is the new Watch Urbane LTE, a variant of the recently announced wearable from LG in its latest premium and fashionable Watch Urbane line. As the name suggests, the new watch will come with built-in LTE antenna for LTE wireless network-based calls.

Aside from voice call functionality, the watch is also equipped with GPS for location sharing, a speech translation software and a radio style communication feature. In addition to the features mentioned, it comes also with its own version of a payment system that makes use of NFC to make purchases using an NFC-based payment system. Be reminded though that the new Watch Urbane wont be using the common Android Wear Platform and instead runs on its own proprietary software.

The new Watch Urbane LTE does not only gain new features but also has its own upgraded specs from the non-LTE variant as it comes with a larger 700 mAh battery and twice the RAM at 1 GB as compared to the 410 mAh battery and 512 MB of RAM from the latter. Everything else are the same except to those things that we’ve mentioned. The Watch Urbane series will be coming to MWC 2015 will all other handheld and pocket devices that LG is anticipated to showcase during the four days event in Barcelona Spain.
