Back in November, LG was pulling the Watch Urbane 2 of the market only a few days after is release. Unfortunately, the display issues of this smart wearable were not that easy to fix. The good part is that, according to a recent report by CNET, this smartwatch will bounce back in the second half of this year.
A South Korean spokesman revealed that the Google Nexus 5 and Nexus 5X will not get a successor anytime soon. He also added that "LG needs to focus on its own brand," so manufacturing anything for others is largely out of question for a while. In the end, he also uncovered that a new smartwatch will launch in the second half. As it usually happens in such cases, no details have been mentioned so far.
On the other hand, sales of smartwatches are now better than those of traditional Swiss, so we just need to wait and see when will the Urbane 2 get back.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
