LG Smartwatch with 3G Support Spotted at the FCC

LG will be soon be releasing another smartwatch model that can act as a standalone device. This after an FCC filing was spotted detailing what appears to be a new LG smartwatch that has 3G capabilities. This means that it won’t need to be paired to a smartphone to make or receive calls. The device will also feature a CDMA technology which means that it will be able to work on the Verizon and Sprint network.

Very little information is available so far regarding this new device. We still don’t know what software it will be running on or what its internal hardware will be like. What we do know is that this device will be released in two models namely the LG-VC100 and the LG-VC100P. It will also have a USB port which I’m assuming will be used to charge the device and transfer data. There’s also a headset jack which can be used for calls or listening to music.

The other smartwatch model of the company is the LG G Watch which is already available in the market and has the following specifications listed below.
  • Chipset: Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor
  • Display: 1.65-inch LCD IPS (280 x 280)
  • Memory: 4GB eMMC / 512MB RAM
  • Battery: 400mAh
  • Operating System: Android Wear
  • Size: 37.9 x 46.5 x 9.95mm
  • Weight: 63g
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth 4.0
  • Sensors: 9-Axis (Gyro / Accelerometer / Compass)
  • Color: White Gold/ Black Titan
  • Others: Dust and Water Resistant (IP67)

You can get this wearable device for around $200.

LG’s upcoming smartwatch that features a 3G functionality may come with slightly improved specifications than the current models and may be sold at roughly the same price range.

There’s been a boom recently in the smartwatch market as consumers are now discovering the benefits that they can get when having this device. It easily complements the functions of their smartphones and oftentimes adds more features to it.
