Smartwatch display from LG will be “always-on”

This suggests that the Android based wearable technology may have overcome the battery life issue.

LG has now released a teaser page for its smartwatch based on the Android Wear operating system by Google for wearable technology, which has shown that the manufacturer is now able to provide an “always-on” mobile device display.

The G Watch teaser has provided a surprising amount of insight about what the gadget has to offer.

This one point about the display will set the LG smartwatch apart from the latest Galaxy Gear mobile devices. Samsung’s wearable technology devices keep the displays turned off until the wrist is flicked upward. That said, while LG has given that much information about its upcoming wearables, it has not explained exactly how it will be able to accomplish this screen that is always on. That said, there are two primary possibilities that have been identified.

There are some other always on smartwatch gadgets that have already hit the market.

One was seen in the SmartWatch 2 from Sony ,which uses an LCD screen that is “transreflective”. While the color display in those wearables can last for days on a single charge, when it is not actively being used, it switches into grayscale mode in order to help to conserve power.Smartwatch - Battery Life

The other possibility could be similar to the Mirasol display technology from Qualcomm, which allows the display to remain in full color for days at a time when starting at a full charge. Though this technology has yet to make its way into a mass market product, the company has been selling the Toq experimental watch product that uses that type of display.

Other details have also been released by LG, such as the fact that it will be available in “champagne gold” with a white strap, or in black with a black strap. These gadgets will be both dust and water resistant to help to ensure a longer lifespan.

That said, it is the power efficiency that is drawing the largest amount of attention to this smartwatch, as this is one of the issues that is causing the greatest struggles in the development of mobile devices in this category.

Gadgets from LG will soon feature curved displays

These new handsets are slated to be launched in November, in time for the holiday shopping season.

LG Electronics Inc. has announced that it is now beginning to mass produce gadgets that have curved displays, such as in the case of the smartphones that are set to launch next month.

The goal is to carve out a larger portion of the market that is currently held by its larger rival, Samsung.

Last month, Samsung announced that it would begin releasing curved display gadgets as of October. These smartphones were to become available at some point this month from the leading smartphone manufacturer in the world. It made this announcement in order to help to keep ahead of the slowing high-end smartphone market growth.

Curved displays are still in the beginning states of gadget development but could be important to wearables.

Gadgets - smartphone with curved displayThis new type of display can make it possible to have bendable and foldable designs that could make it possible for wearable gadgets and other mobiles such as smartphones and tablets to be able to take on new designs that could dramatically change the look and design of the high end smartphone market.

In the case of LG Display Co. Ltd., they have announced that the gadgets that will use this technology, so far, will include a six inch display smartphone that is curved from top to bottom. This LG device is expected to be launched in November. At the same time, the Samsung handset will be curved from side to side, instead of the top to bottom shape from LG Electronics.

As of January, Samsung had become the global smartphone gadgets leader, after having taken the position from Apple Inc. In that month, it revealed a line of prototype products that were based on a flexible screen as well as a display extending from the side of the device.

According to tech experts, the technology has yet to be manufactured in a way that can be mass produced cheaply, and there is still a need to come up with display panels that are resistant to heat and that are thin at the same time. Curved displays are already available in larger gadgets such as big screen televisions. Both LG and Samsung have been selling these TVs this year.
