Google and LG are expected to launch a completely new pair of smartwatches by the end of the month, on February 26: the LG Watch Sport and LG Watch Style, alongside their new operating system for wearable, Android Wear 2.0.
Until now, except a few leaked images, they managed to keep both devices secret. Until today, that is, when a set of images with the LG Watch Style made the rounds online, revealing how the smartwatch’s front and retail box will look!
The device comes with a circular body and a single button on the right side, as well as standard straps, of either 20 or 22mm in width. It’s finished in Black or Gray – we can’t tell exactly – but it should be available in a few extra colors as well.
Investigating a bit the sticker on the back of the box, it seems that the code name will be LG-W270 and the smartwatch is manufactured last month, in Korea, meaning that they were already sent for distribution.
Spec-wise, the LG Watch Style is expected to come with a 1.2″ P-OLED display, with a resolution of 360 x 360 pixels, and feature IP67 certification, making it water and dust resistant. The battery is rumored to have a capacity of 240 mAh, enough for a full day of regular use, and the amount of RAM counts 512 MP. Even though it’s not mentioned, it will also have 4 GB of internal storage, while the processor is still unknown.
Unfortunately, the smartwatch won’t have a heart rate monitor, while features like 3G, 4G, GPS or NFC are also missing, meaning that it should have a pretty pocket-friendly price tag. On the other side, all these should be present on the LG Watch Sport, rumored to have a bigger display and an extra amount of processing power stacked under the hood.
