Last week, LG said that they would be removing the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE from the shelves, but we didn’t get a solid reason why. According to The Telegraph, there is a component that could possibly lead to the display image quality deteriorating over time.
Here’s the statement provided to The Telegraph from LG:
“For competitive and supplier relations reasons we are not in a position to communicate the specifics of the issue that led to this decision. However, what we can share is that the hardware issue was related to a new advanced component that we had incorporated in the device that had never been used in an LG wearable device before,” the company said.
“During aggressive testing over thousands of hours under severe conditions, it was revealed that this component failed to meet LG’s quality standards and could potentially impact our image quality over the life of the device.”
It looks for the time that this watch won’t be going back on sale. Maybe a new version with a even better name will be released (LG Watch Urbane 2nd and a Half Edition LTE?) It is still unclear on what happens to the lucky few who got the watch before it was pulled.
