When Google introduced Android Wear, the latest operating platform for wearable devices back in March, LG was the first company to announce Android Wear powered smartwatch LG G with expected availability from Q2 this year. Now in a short talk with Pocket-lint, LG has confirmed that its first smartwatch LG G is going to be available in UK before July, and it will be sold for for less than 180 GBP (Rs. 18,090 approx) in the UK.
LG has still not revealed the internals of the watch, but it has showcased a non-working prototype of the G Watch at an event in UK, which is expected to be the final version. If earlier surfaced rumours are to be believed, the LG G smartwatch will include 1.65-inch IPS LCD (280x280p) display, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage in addition to Google’s Android Wear. LG has confirmed that the LG G will come with changeable straps.
In addition to LG, Motorola has also announced its first smartwatch, called Moto 360, which boasts a circular display unlikely. Motorola’s Moto 360 is also rumoured to be available this summer starting USA, however there is no official word regarding its availability in coming days.
