LG Announces The All Metal LG Watch Urbane

LG has just sent out a press release for its latest Android Wear device - the LG Watch Urbane.

The Watch Urbane, "first all-metal luxury Android Wear device," ostensibly drops both the "G" naming scheme and the bezel markings of the G Watch R, opting for understated metal casings. Otherwise the specs should look pretty familiar.

  • Operating System: Android Wear™
  • Display: 1.3-inch P-OLED Display (320 x 320, 245ppi)
  • Size: 45.5 x 52.2 x 10.9mm
  • Memory: 4GB eMMC / 512MB LPDDR2
  • Battery: 410mAh
  • Sensors: 9-Axis (Gyro / Accelerometer / Compass) / Barometer / PPG (Heart Rate Sensor)
  • Colors: Gold / Silver
  • Other: Dust and Water Resistant (IP67)

LG hasn't provided any specific availability details (or pricing), but we should be finding out more at Mobile World Congress, which is quickly approaching.

Possible HTC One M9 Leak Shows A Familiar Flagship Design With A Single Rear Camera

A new HTC flagship phone is coming. You probably already knew that. But the first possible (and frankly, quite probable) look at the device came today from the folks at, a French leak site. Two photos show the front and back of the device, which follows the general design of the One family with a couple of important differences. The photos at the original website were taken down at the request of the anonymous source... which is usually a pretty good indication that they're on to something.


The source refers to the phone as the "HTC One M9," and though we obviously can't confirm it ourselves, it seems like a pretty reasonable jump for the Taiwanese manufacturer.

Samsung's Unpacked Teaser Trailer All But Confirms The Galaxy S5 At MWC

Samsung is no stranger to teasers, but with Mobile World Congress just days away, the excitement surrounding the Galaxy S5 is reaching fanboy-ish proportions. It's a perfect time to drop a teaser video that throws around the number 5 to get everyone all amped up, and that's what Samsung just did.

The trailer has a lot of verbs and nouns raised to the 5th power, which I suppose is how Samsung has decided to indicate this is about the Galaxy S5 without actually saying it. Speed to the 5th power? Okay, I'm in, but I'll pass on the selfie to the 5th power.

LG Korea Confirms G Pro 2 Will Be Announced Next Month, Probably At Mobile World Congress

The Padfone Infinity is the tablet/phone combination we were expecting from ASUS today. It's got decent specs, and boasts ASUS' new AOCC "Ubiquitous Cloud" functionality, but has a rather stunning price, pegged at €999. The device isn't expected to make an appearance States-side.
