Lemfo has unveiled a new smartwatch, and it is an odd one. The LEM14 has a MediaTek MT6762 chipset, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, which is not that unusual considering that it runs a fully-fledged version of Android. The smartwatch is rather large because of its 1.69-inch IPS display and 1,600 mAh battery, but Lemfo has still managed to keep the weight of the smartwatch to 90 g without a strap attached.
The LEM14 also has an LTE modem and a nano-SIM card slot, along with support for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. Similarly, the smartwatch has built-in GPS and an NFC module for use with services like Google Pay. Lemfo states that it has pre-installed the Google Play Store too, which is always a good thing. Lemfo claims that the LEM14 is IP68 and 5ATM certified too, which is fairly typical of modern smartwatches, as is the inclusion of a heart rate monitor.
However, the selling point of the LEM14 is undoubtedly its two cameras. According to the manufacturer, the camera above the display is an 8 MP sensor that supports face unlocking, albeit only a 2D form of it. A 13 MP sensor sits between the smartwatch's two physical buttons, which Lemfo claims supports autofocus.
The Lemfo LEM14 retails for US$199.99 on Banggood, a price that also nets you a ceramic bezel and nine exercise modes. Banggood appears to be the only retailer carrying the LEM14 for the time being.
