LG G Watch Tweet

Earlier today we reported that the LG G Watch will be offered for free to all Google I/O 2014 attendees, but that’s not the only G Watch news heading our way. While we already knew what the G Watch looked like and know a reasonable amount about the Android Wear UI, newly leaked details allegedly give us a more detailed look at what the G Watch’s specs will bring to the table.

The leaked charts come by way of @upleaks, the same leaker that recently brought us a system dump for the G Watch. If the charts prove correct, the G Watch will offer a 1.6-inch display with a 280×280 resolution, 4GB storage, and a 400mAh battery with a standby time of 36 hours and will take 2 hours to fully charge. The watch will have the overall dimensions of 37.9 x 46.5 x 9.95mm and will weigh in at 61 grams. The chart also says the device has 4GB RAM but this is obviously a typo, we’d imagine it will offer RAM that’s somewhere in the 512 – 1GB range — though that’s really just speculation on our part.


Can we learn anything else from the leak? Not a whole lot more, but the spec sheet does reveal a few other minor details such as the fact that the watch has multi-language support for English, Spanish, French, Korean and Chinese. There’s also mention of the ability to take memos and send text messages using your voice. Apart from the leaked charts, a tweet from upleaks on June 4th also claims the G Watch will be powered by a quad-core 787MHz Snapdragon CPU.

The LG G Watch is looking to be a pretty powerful device, though how it directly compares to other Android Wear devices remains unseen. We suspect we’ll learn more soon enough, with Google I/O 2014 about two weeks away now.
