LG's next smartwatch may include a modular camera
The patent mentions “mobile terminal” features, so we can safely assume the smartwatch will include cellular connectivity as well. What makes LG's smartwatch interesting is the way it allows users to add a camera on the fly.
Instead of putting the camera inside the smartwatch, LG's patent adopts a better design aspect, which will allow users to take pictures with the wearable device much easier. Since the camera can be added on the smartwatch's band, you won't have to keep your hand in an awkward position when you want to capture a picture.
The camera will be able to provide more info about a product appearing in a picture, such as the number of calories if you take food pictures or a shop from where you can buy a pair of shoes.
Spotted by LetsGoDigital, the patent may or may not turn into an actual product, but the idea of having the option to add a camera to a smartwatch on the go doesn't seem too hard to achieve. If LG won't come up with such a smartwatch, then maybe another company will launch something similar (but not too similar) in the not so distant future.
