Google Smart Watch Specs Leaked [Rumor]By: Zach Walton - March 13, 2014
Earlier this month, it was rumored that LG would be making both the Nexus 6 and a smart watch for Google this year. Based on prior releases, we could reasonably assume what the Nexus 6 would look like, but the smart watch remained a mystery. While we still know next to nothing about the device, a leak has shared a few details on Google’s upcoming wearable.
Over on Twitter, @evleaks shared some of the specs for Google and LG’s upcoming smart watch this afternoon. The leak says that device will feature a 1.65-inch 280×280 IPS LCD display, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. The CPU is still be to determined, though, so we don’t know how powerful this thing is going to be.
As for the actual design of the watch, we don’t know that either. It could possibly look like the prototype smart watch Motorola was working on, but it’s unlikely. LG and Google are going to want their smart watch to have a premium look and feel, and a rubber strap just isn’t going to cut it anymore.
So, when are we going to see Google’s smart watch? According to @evleaks, Google will unveil the device at Google I/O on June 25. Knowing Google, everybody in attendance will likely get one. From there, it will likely be made available on the Google Play Store a few days later.
It will be interesting to see if LG unveils its own smart watch before then as it may give us some insight into Google’s device. After all, most Nexus hardware is based off of existing hardware with a few tweaks here and there to conform to Google’s own design language.
