The direct successor to the notorious G Watch R is expected to be unveiled at MWC 2015 in Barcelona featuring 4G connectivity.

LG G Watch R is an excellent product with a round P-OLED display, a more than capable quad-core processor, good battery life, but especially a great classic design with a brushed aluminum and stainless steel body. This Android Wear-powered wearable also features voice commands via Google Now. If the latest rumors prove to be true, the G Watch will get a successor in early 2015.

According to insiders familiar to the matter who spoke to BusinessKorea, LG's will launch its first 4G smartwatch at MWC 2015 in Barcelona. The event takes place in February and the wearable will be called G Watch R2. No other details have been given, but considering the name, it is very likely that LG will add 4G connectivity and keep the design very close to the round smartwatch they already sell.

Apple Watch is also expected to launch during 2015, but the 3G- and WiFi-capable Samsung Gear S can be already purchased by those in need of a SIM-enabled smartwatch. LG still has to confirm the G Watch successor and its improved specs.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
