LG G Watch specs and release date leak

With Google’s Android Wear smartwatch OS nearing its official unveiling, it’s perhaps unsurprising that new batch of information concerning the LG G Watch should appear.

The LG G Watch, after all, will be the first smartwatch to run Android Wear, followed closely by the Motorola Moto 360.

We’ve know about the LG G Watch’s design for a while – it’s pretty traditional looking. Now, thanks to a leaked spec sheet tweeted by @UpLeaks, we also have an idea of its specifications.

We’re looking at a 1.6-inch 280 x 280 display, 4GB of internal storage, and a 400mAh battery. That battery will be good for 36 hours stand-by time, while a complete charge will take two hours.

The spec sheet also mentions that the Android Wear OS will enable you to dictate texts and memos to your LG G Watch.

Google will likely show off Android Wear at Google I/O on June 25, and there are pretty good odds that this is where the LG G Watch will receive its first major outing with Google’s smartwatch software.

As for a release date, MoDaCo claims that the smartwatch will hit UK shops two weeks later on July 7.

It also claims to have learned that the price will be lower than that of the Samsung Gear 2 Neo, which is £169.99.

As ever with these leaks and rumours, none of this is set in stone. Still, we should only have another two weeks to wait for the first full glimpse at the LG G Watch running Android Wear.
