Google is expected to focus on wearable gadgets this year, and we may see a brand new smartwatch made by LG this year.
Google is going to unveil its first smartwatch sometime after the second quarter of the year, and now there’s no doubt about that.
Earlier Google said to be cooperated with LG Electronics for a brand new smartwatch, rather than adopting the prototype Gem, unveiling at Google I/O event, scheduled for June 25-26. While there’ve been many rumors about the company’s new wearable gadget, not much is known about its specs. Apparently, the noble leaker @evleaks on Twitter has shared a few specs of the smartwatch.
The Google Watch is said to have 1.65-inch IPS LCD with 280 x 280 resolution, 512 MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage, while the processor is yet to be decided.
Although, there’s obviously no way to confirm if these hardware specifications are true, and we have to wait until Google makes any statement. However, aforementioned info is very much in line with those of the Galaxy Gear 2, so it’s quite plausible.
Pricing and availability details haven’t been chattered right now.
At the beginning of this week, Google’s Sundar Pichai said that the company is tweaking Android for wearable devices and the SDK will be released soon, most probably next week. It will aid developers to build Android apps tailored to wearable devices.
Additionally, previous rumors suggest that the launch of Nexus 8 running Android 4.5 might also take place sometime in the summer. So we can expect the glimpse of the next update Android platform during the seventh edition of the developer conference, to be held in Sans Francisco.
