Two New LG Smartwatches With Android Wear 2.0, LTE Connectivity And Wireless Charging Capability Gets FCC Certification
LG is continuing to prime itself up as a major player in the wearable tech industry with a couple of new smartwatches with the possibility of a total of four new devices in the offing.
It was recently discovered that the said smartwatches from the Korean tech company were awarded certification by the Federal Communications Commission or FCC. According to Digital Trends, however, one of LG's smartwatches has already been confirmed to be FCC-certified while around three more are yet to be verified but chances are high that it has been certified as well. The four possible new smartwatches already have names - the LG Watch Force, LG Watch Pro, LG Watch Sole, and LG Watch Style.
Digital Trends also reports that the devices will likely run on Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 210 processor and have the yet-to-be-released Android Wear 2.0. The upcoming Android OS will be launched in Feb. and chances are high that LG's new wearable will have it.
According to the report, the LG smartwatches will support 3G and 4G connectivity and will thus require data plans.
Android Headlines, meanwhile, mentions two LG smartwatches have been certified. Since there are contradicting details about this piece of news, it is wise to wait for an official announcement from LG itself.
Looking at the Android Headlines article, it is mentioned that the two smartwatches already have model numbers. One is labeled W270 while the other has two variants with model numbers W280A and W280V. Some have already speculated that the two variants correspond to different carriers, particularly AT&T and Verizon. This coincides with the Digital Trends assumption that the LG smartwatches will need data plans.
Little details are shared on the commission's website but the few tidbits that are known are impressive. The upcoming LG smartwatch will sport a round dial similar to Samsung Gear S3 and will be capable of wireless charging. It will also come with multi-band LTE connectivity.
