LG Briefly Explains Why Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE Sales Were Halted

By 06:28 Thu, 29 Jul 2021 Comments

When LG halted sales of its newly-launched Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE late last week, it just assumed there's "a hardware issue which affects the day-to-day functionality of the device." Now, the South Korean company has provided some more information on the issue.

LG has revealed that the smartwatch contains a faulty component that has the potential to bring down the wearable's image quality over time. The company also assumed that the component in question had never been used in an LG wearable device before.

"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," the company explained, although it refrained from divulging further details due to "competitive and supplier relations reasons."

LG, however, did stress that "the issue in question has no bearing whatsoever on the safety of the device or the wearer."
