The wearable tech segment is going to be bustling in 2014. While Apple may have something interesting to show up later this year, LG, on the other hand, seems ready to play its inning much before the Cupertino-based tech giant.
The much hyped LG G Watch is expected to get launched later this month, probably at Google IO 2014. Although LG has already managed to give a rear glimpse at its modern day intelligent watch, not many hardware details were known until now.
Thankfully now, more details have emerged about LG's G Watch. According to a new 9to5Google report, the G Watch codenamed "Dory", is said to be powered by Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor clocked to 787MHz and is paired with Adreno 305 GPU and 512MB of RAM. The alleged leak comes via a system dump that reveals fascinating details of the smartwatch.
In addition, the report further sheds light on the kind of apps the smartwatch will feature, including the likes of alarm, compass, a timer and Google Maps " micro", which is said to be a lighter version of the mapping software.
In the meantime, some images of watch faces that seem to fit with LG G Watch's design have been leaked online. The source of this leak @upleaks on Twitter claims the G Watch is the Android Wear reference design.
