LG has outed more details concerning its new LG Watch Urbane LTE smartwatch, which will be available in South Korea this Friday, March 27.
To refresh your memory on just how powerful the LG Watch Urbane LTE really is, the official specs are listed as:
It will cost 650,000 KRW ($590) in Korea. That’s certainly a lot of money, higher than the starting price of the Apple Watch ($349). However, unlike the Apple Watch, the LG Watch Urbane LTE sports its own SIM card, it is able to make phone calls on its own, without being tethered to a smartphone.
Of course, the LG Watch Urbane LTE can also be connected to an Android smartphone via Bluetooth. What is interesting is that the wearer doesn’t run Android Wear, instead using an LG proprietary wearable platform (possibly based on WebOS).

Let us know in the comments if you’re seeing the update on your tablet if you’re in Korea. If you haven’t seen the update yet, it may take a bit of time for the OTA to reach all tablets.

The Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the LG G2 has only started in South Korea in mid-January, but it may arrive outside the US and Europe earlier than that. According to @LGIndiaTweets, LG has officially announced that the update will start rolling out in India in in the second quarter of 2015
The Android 5.0 Lollipop update will come over-the-air, and your device will notify you about its arrival and ask you to install it. Therefore we recommend to backup your data, perform a factory reset and then download the Lollipop update over a Wi-Fi connection.
The size of the update will be around 1.2GB. If you’re itching to get Android 5.0 on your G2, you can manually trigger the OTA by checking for updates between April and June. It can’t hurt to try, a few dozen times.
