LG clearly got the memo about how badly designed the original LG G Watch was a few months ago, up to the point of launching the G Watch R very shortly after. Obviously it’s hard to compete with the elegance of devices like the Moto 360, and LG decided to give it a shot. Just when you thought that LG couldn’t improve on all the elegance of the Watch Urbane, or the added functionality of the Watch Urbane LTE, it seems the company is just getting started.
We’ve got what seems to be a new trademark filing for an LG Watch Urbane Luxe in the works. We say “seems” because we’re having a hard time tracking that trademark, but if true, then we’re clearly up for a new unit. The word Luxe is commonly used for products that are deluxe versions of existing products, and even though we thought that Watch Urbane served that purpose, it seems it isn’t. Sadly the documents don’t provide any details as to what to expect, but given how close we are to IFA, it does make sense for LG to keep us on the edge of our seats, and even more with Samsung’s rumored Orbis project.
IFA 2015 could be the spotlight for this new product, and we’ll keep a close eye. We’ll also update this post as soon as we can track the source.
