Teaser video gives us the quickest of glimpses at LG's next smartwatch
We've heard rumors from the Korean press in the past week that LG may be about to unveil a new wearable at IFA 2014, and now it seems we have conclusive proof. The official LG teaser video below makes it pretty clear that the company will indeed show off a new smartwatch at the Berlin trade show in just over a week. The "LG G Watch R teaser comes to us courtesy of LG's global YouTube channel, showcasing (in super-fast, blink-and-you'll-miss-it flashes) a rounded design, a side-mounted button and features like a step counter and compass. And rounded bends, whatever that means.
An IFA unveiling would pit the LG G Watch R against the Moto 360, as well as ASUS' new smartwatch — not to mention Apple's rumored iWatch. It also represents an incredibly quick turnaround from the company's first G Watch, launched in early July and powered by Android Wear; right now it's unclear whether this new watch might see the original being positioned as more of a budget offering, or if a replacement is on the cards already.
In any case, we'll be live from Berlin in early September to bring you full coverage of LG's new rounded smartwatch. Thoughts or speculations of your own? Share 'em down in the comments.
