LG Applies for Trademarks for Four New Smartwatches, Might Launch at MWC 2017



LG, Motorola, and Huawei had skipped launching their new Smartwatches in 2016. While Huawei is rumored to bring Tizen-powered smartwatch, the latest news suggests LG to be working on a bunch of smartwatches. The company has applied for trademarks over four names – Watch Style, Watch Pro, Watch Force, and Watch Sole. Earlier to this, the company launched the LG Watch, Watch R, Watch Urbane, and Watch Urbane (2nd Gen) smartwatches. The description of the category that these trademarks are listed says ‘Smartphones for wrist; Smartphones; Watches that communicate data to smartphones; Watches incorporating cameras and mp3 players, and that communicate data to smartphones and PDA; Wearable portable communications apparatus; Wearable smartphones’.

Apart from these names, there is no other information available about these smartwatches. Along with these four trademarks, we also have one trademark with the name ‘Watch Pay.’ The description of this trademark mention, “Mobile payment application (software) for smartphone; Mobile payment application (software) for smartwatch; Smartphones.” This name might be of the payment technology that LG uses in their upcoming smartwatches. Even though its late, LG has finally announced its mobile payment service ‘LG Pay’ earlier this month in its home country. However, the service is yet to come integrated with their smartphones. While Apple Pay and Samsung Pay have seen successful adoption, LG might follow them by launching their service targeting the developed nations.

Even though Samsung and Apple smartphones are sold in India, none of them haven’t yet introduced their mobile payment system in the Indian market. Both the smartwatches and the Watch Pay service are expected to go live first in South Korea. We can expect the company to unveil them alongside the upcoming flagship LG G6 at the MWC 2017. Just like earlier smartwatches, the upcoming smartwatches are also expected to run on Android Wear OS. The LG Watch Urbane LTE is the first ever Android Wear smartwatch to come with LTE connectivity. While Samsung smartwatches run on Tizen OS, Huawei and Motorola also uses the Android Wear OS for their smartwatches. In between, LG also launched one variant of the LG Watch Urbane with WebOS.

As of now, the recently launched LG Pay supports only Shinan and KB Kookmin Cards, which are based out of South Korea. Even Samsung Pay is initially limited to their home country before rolling out globally. In the coming weeks, we might get much more information about their four new smartwatches and LG Pay mobile payment service.
