LG promotes new Watch Urbane Luxe

LG Watch Urbane Luxe

LG has come out with a limited edition 23-karat gold version of its Watch Urbane in partnership with US jewelry company REEDS Jewelers.

The Watch Urbane Luxe, LG’s newest Android Wear smartwatch, offers the same technical options as the original Urbane. The luxury watch, which will retail for $1,200, will offer a gold watch body, alligator leather strap and a lacquer casing.

The 500 premium watches will be ready to buy in October, initially in the US, by visiting www.REEDS.com.

The LG Watch Urbane has landed in the Google Store, making it the first Android Wear device to enjoy Google’s major software update announced last week.

With a price-tag of $349, the LG Watch Urbane costs the same as the cheapest version of the Apple Watch Sport.

However, its stainless steel case and leather band makes it more of a rival to the stainless steel Apple Watch, which starts at $949.

The LG Watch Urbane, which was first announced at the last Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, comes in ether silver or gold.

The posh-looking watches will also be the first devices to give Google’s hand-drawn emoji feature a go.

Considering that the Apple Watch will be hitting the shelves in April, the new LG Watch Urbane has been announced just in the nick of time.

Like Apple’s first entry into the wearable technology market, LG’s third smartwatch, the LG Watch Urbane, which will launch officially at the Mobile World Congress in March, is as much about premium materials and elegance as it is about connecting to a smartphone and running apps.

But as well as pre-empting Apple, LG is actually responding swiftly to the first emerging Android Wear smartwatch trend.

A Canalys report published on Wednesday highlighted that over the past 12 months, fewer than 1 million Android Wear watches had shipped.

The research and analysis firm did confirm that to date, the most popular watches have been the most expensive and stylish models, namely the Moto 360 and the LG G Watch R.

The new watch ups the elegance again thanks to a slimmer stainless steel body, which can be specified with a polished silver or a gold finish, and a traditional stitched leather strap.

Like its last premium smartwatch, the LG G Watch R, the Urbane has a full circular display but is housed in a narrower bezel.

The idea is that it is sufficiently slimline not to get stuck behind the button or cufflink of a man’s dress shirt and not to standout for the wrong reasons when worn by a woman.

The smartwatch, the price of which will be announced later, can also monitor heart rate and average pulse and is water and dust resistant.

LG Swarovski OLED TV

LG’s New OLED TV Is Covered In Swarovski Crystals

LG Swarovski OLED TV

LG has partnered with Swarovski to create a one-off crystal-studded curved OLED TV, which is due to be unveiled at the IFA consumer technology show in Germany on September 5.

As well as incredible picture quality and a curved display that’s only 4mm thick, the television’s stand features 460 hand-applied luminescent Aurora Borealis crystals of three different sizes.

The resulting effect, according to LG, is “a subtle but elegant sparkling pattern that turns a cutting-edge television into a work of art.”

 is becoming the go-to company when manufacturers want to make their electronic devices that bit more desirable!

And, as well as this one-off television, a Swarovski crystal-encrusted strap for Samsung’s latest smartwatch will also be on display at this year’s IFA.

LG’s 105-Inch 4K TV Costs a Breathtaking $120,000

LG 105UC9

If you liked the look of Samsung’s living room-filling 105-inch curved screen HDTV set but were put off by its $120,000 asking price, there’s good news.

On Tuesday, LG launched its own equally curved, equally large and equally ultra-high definition TV, the LG 105UC9, and it will “only” cost $117,000.

Thanks to the sheer size of the screen it boasts 11 million pixels, so technically speaking it’s a 5K, not a 4K set (as it has five times the number of pixels found in a HD TV screen), something LG is very quick to point out.

It also comes with a specially designed sound system co-developed by premium audio brand Harman Kardon so the listening experience should be as immersive as the viewing — with an aspect ratio of 21:9.

LG Curved Ultra HDTV

“The vision behind LG’s 105-inch 21:9 Curved Ultra HD TV was to bring the movie theater into the living room,” said In-kyu Lee, senior vice president and head of the TV Division at LG’s Home Entertainment Company.

“Featuring a curved 5K CinemaScope screen and a 7.2 channel speaker system, the 105UC9 is LG’s most spectacular Ultra HD TV yet. This product pushes the envelope in home entertainment innovation and demonstrates what is possible when you bring today’s most advanced TV technologies together.”

However, not everything broadcast on television, available on cable or as a internet clip comes in the same aspect ratio as an effects-laden blockbuster.

So rather than stretch and distort the image in order to fill the screen, when something is in a more typical 16:9 aspect ratio, areas of the screen are left dark instead and can be used to display programming information or to access menus.

Like all televisions that market themselves as 4K UHD, the LG set can take SD and HD content, like a Blu-ray, and upscale it to UHD format.

Available to order now in South Korea for 120 million won, which works out at $117,000, LG says that it will be rolling out to other markets before the end of the year at which point it will announce international pricing.

LG G Flex

LG’s flexible smartphone is coming to Europe

LG G Flex

LG has announced that its G Flex handset will be coming to European shores in December once it has officially launched in its homeland on November 12.

The company says that Orange France will be the first network operator to start offering the phone — which curves from top to bottom and is therefore not to be confused with Samsung’s Galaxy Round, which curves from side to side — outside South Korea, and it will go on sale in time for Christmas.

So far, there’s no word on how much the device will cost early adopting Europeans but LG has confirmed that in Korea it will go on sale for 999,900 Won — that’s about €700.

Flexible display technology could prove revolutionary: if a screen can be bent in half or rolled into a cylinder, then companies will no longer be confined to building rigidly square or rectangular devices.

It would also mean that tablets could have massive 20-inch screens, but then neatly fold up to be easily carried in a handbag. That’s a vision of the future. In the present, because batteries, camera lenses, and processors are still distinctly rigid, all that’s possible are the curved handsets that LG and Samsung have just launched.

The LG G Flex uses the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor found in the Samsung Galaxy Note III and LG’s own less flexible G2 flagship — so it won’t be lacking for speed or multitasking performance. It also has a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a less than full HD, 720p display.

However, what it loses in resolution, it makes up for in Terminator-esque self-healing properties. Thanks to a special coating on its case, surface scratches on its sides and rear should magically disappear.
