LG G Watch rumored release date and pricing emerge
Interested in purchasing an LG G Watch? We know a launch is nearing when we start seeing rumors of a device showing up more frequently. The latest murmurs gave us details on the specs, and suggested the smartwatch would be one of this year’s Google IO freebies. If that isn’t enough proof that the LG G Watch is soon to launch, now we also have a rumored release date and pricing information!
Anonymous sources tell Modaco LG’s Android Wear device is to be released on July 7th, soon after this year’s Google IO concludes. Pricing details are still a bit vague, but we are getting an idea of how affordable the device will be.
It is said the LG G Watch will cost less than the Samsung Gear 2 Neo, which is currently priced at $199 or £169.99. “Under $199” leaves a pretty large window, but even if priced at almost $200, this wouldn’t be a bad deal. Especially with competitors like the Pebble Steel around, with more limited software and a $249 price point.
Do remember these are rumors and we have no solid evidence to back them up, even though the information does make sense. Take it with a grain of salt and hope for the best.
LG G Watch details
Let’s go over some of the LG G Watch details we know so far, just in case you are still on the fence about it. Of course, there are the specs we found out about this morning, which include a 400 mAh battery, 4 GB of internal storage and a 1.65-inch 280x280p display.
If you want even more information, you can also take a look at a hands-on video that recently reached the inter webs! Yes, a full hands-on video. In fact, this was the only one around, but it was soon taken down and made private. The good news is we managed to capture all the details and even some screenshots.
