LG And Google Smartwatches With Android Wear 2.0 Leaked, Launch Set For February 9
LG and Google will have the distinction of being the first ones to release smartwatches that are powered by the latest Android Wear 2.0.
The two companies have teamed up to produce the LG Watch Sport and LG Watch Style which will be launched on Feb.9 according to a Twitter post from Evan Blass, a blogger, and known phone leaker.
VentureBeat also learned that the two smartwatches will drop into U.S. stores the day later and will be made available in other regions throughout February and March. LG will also participate in the Mobile World Congress which will be held in Barcelona, Spain from Feb. 27 to Mar. 2 this year.
News of the coming smartwatches began to circulate in the middle of 2016 and gathered steam around December when Google announced that the new smartwatches would be equipped with Android Wear 2.0. At the time, Google did not name the manufacturer it was working with to make the wearables. Android Wear product manager Jeff Chang also divulged that the smartwatches will not bear the Google logo but of its then-anonymous manufacturer.
Forward to 2017 and the mysterious partner has been named. The LG Watch Sport and LG Watch Style smartwatches are less than a month away from being made available to the public.
The LG Watch Sport, most likely LG's flagship smartwatch, is 14.2mm thick and will sport a 1.38-inch round plastic OLED display with 480 x 480-pixel resolution. It will also come with 768MB of RAM, 4GB internal storage, and a 430mAh battery.
The LG Watch Style is thinner at 10.8mm, has a smaller display at 1.2 inches and less resolution at 360 x 360 pixels but will have the same internal storage as the LG Watch Sport at 4GB. The Watch Style will also have 512MB of RAM and a 240mAh battery.
Both models will have WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity with the Watch Sport having 3G and LTE connectivity, as well, while the latter will also feature GPS and NFC radio.
