Within an hour of the announcement of the Android Wear–an operating platform for wearable devices, LG has announced the launch of first Android Wear powered smartwatch in the form of LG G on Tuesday. According to the company, the smartwatch, which would hit the shelves in Q2 this year, will be released in association with Google itself.
The keys specifications of the LG G are still a mystery at the moment, but if previously surfaced rumoured are to be believed, this wearable will pack 1.65-inch IPS LCD (280x280p) display, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage.
The watch operates on Android Wear, and support all the features that we have gathered in this post like Google Now integration and rich notifications support.
“With the LG G Watch, LG is continuing the milestones we’ve set in wearables following in the foot-steps of the world’s first 3G Touch Watch Phone in 2009 and the Prada Link in 2008. We’re confident that a well-designed device has the potential to take the smart wearable market by storm.” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
According to LG, it wants G Watch to act as a “low barrier to entry” for developers, so it will probably be more of a limited availability device.
