Smartwatch spec leaks from Google are swamping the web

Rumors have started to fly following a leak from a Twitter user that revealed key specifications of the upcoming device.

The smartwatch from Google that was first making technology news because it was revealed that it would be manufactured by LG is now back in the wearable technology headlines once more after a massive Twitter leak that may have revealed some of the key specs about this mobile device.

These wearables are expected to be among the hottest entries into this category and now we may know a little more.

EVLeaks has tweeted a list of specs about the Google smartwatch. That user has had a solid track record in terms of leaking accurate information about upcoming gadgets. They reported that these wearables will have an IPS display of 1.65 inches and a resolution of 280p by 280p. When the resolution and size are both taken into consideration, then this suggests that these mobile devices will feature a 240ppi pixel density.

There was also a great deal more revealed about the upcoming Google smartwatch.

For example, it indicated that there would be 512 MB RAM, as well as an internal storage capacity of 4 GB. Among the other central features that will define this upcoming wearable tech device that are sources of curiosity, such as the battery and the processor, have yet to be revealed by any credible source.Is Google Smartwatch Coming Soon

The same Twitter poster was the one that revealed that LG would be the manufacturer of the Google wearables.

It is suspected that this mobile device will have a strong base in the Google Now virtual assistant. It will be capable of receiving voice commands and searching for data on the internet as well as within the device itself. This type of technology has already been launched in a device owned by Google in the form of the Moto X smartphone that was released by Motorola. It provided the user with touchless control functionality so that the screen never needed to be tapped in order to provide the gadget with commands.

After Google Glass, the upcoming smartwatch will represent the second time that the brand has made its way into the wearable technology industry.

Smartwatches by LG for Google? That’s the scuttlebutt

The latest rumor is that the South Korean device manufacturer will build the competition for the iWatch for the tech giant.

Recent news published in The Wall Street Journal has revealed that Google is on its way to creating smartwatches, and that it is LG that is the company behind their manufacture.

This will considerably expand the hardware partnership between Google and LG.

The news publication said that it obtained the information about the Google smartwatches in Barcelona, through a “person familiar with the situation”. This will bring both industry giants into the wearable technology domain in a tremendous way. That said, LG may not be the only manufacturer that will be involved in making the wrist worn devices.

It might be that the Google smartwatches will use a strategy similar to that used for its Nexus devices.

Google’s Nexus tablets and smartphones draw hardware from more than one company. It wouldn’t be unheard of for it to do the same for its wearable tech, as well. None of this will be revealed for certain until some point in March, when it is rumored – according to CNET – that Google will be unveiling the operating system. That said, the actual reveal for the mobile devices, themselves, will likely not be until June at their I/O conference.

Similar details have been showing up online in many places that have been accurate with their predictions in the past.Smartwatches- Wearable Technology

This is not the first that the world has heard of a smartwatch device from Google. Reports began to make their way into the mainstream press last October, when they were saying that these gadgets could be unveiled within the upcoming months.

Other predictions that are being made about these wearable tech gadgets are that they will help to place a more powerful focus on glanceable information and on Google Now. However, at this point in the game, very little else is known about what the device will entail. Once Google does make its entry into the market, it will have competition from other smartwatches that are already on their way to establishing themselves, such as Galaxy Gear and Pebble, as well as the rumored iWatch from Apple.
