Samsung has made it presence felt in this year's IFA event that being held in Berlin. And that can be deduced by the host of devices it unveiled when the company took the stage at the event. Apart from all others, it unveiled the new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge handsets for its fans.
With the new release, Samsung looks all set to make new grounds in this entire big phone race. While the previous Galaxy Note 3 made it own personal space in that race, the newly unveiled Note 4 looks set to increase that personal space even further.
We saw both the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy Note Edge being showed off at this year's IFA event. And while it's amazing how most of the specs for both the handset somewhat match their rumored counterparts, it still needs to be said that both of them have been outed keeping new-age users in mind.
But while both the handsets look pretty impressive, what are the basic differences between both handsets? We take a closer look.
In terms of resolution, the LG G Watch R's display comes in a 320 x 320- pixels, while the Moto 360 has a 320 x 290 - pixel resolution display. The Moto 360 uses a 1.5-inch LCD screen, whereas the G Watch features a 1.3-inch plastic OLED screen. By far, both watches have stainless steel frame, making them elite in nature.
On the hardware part, the G Watch R comes with a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, paired with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of on-board memory. The Moto 360, meanwhile, could pack a Texas Instruments processor, 512MB of RAM and at least 4GB of on-board storage. We don't know much about the latter device, as Motorola hasn't launched the watch just yet.
The LG G Watch R uses a 410mAh battery, which should last a day. Again, we do know whether the Moto 360 has a long battery life, but it would come with charging dock, according to few reports.
In the name of connectivity, the G Watch R offers Bluetooth connectivity, heart-rate monitor, Gyro/ Accelerometer/ Compass), Barometer, among others. The Moto 360, on the other hand, is expected to arrive with more-or-less similar connectivity options.
Both the Moto 360 and LG G Watch R run on the latest Android Wear platform promoted by Google. This means that they won't be too different in respect of features and functionality.
The LG G Watch R is rugged in nature, all thanks to IP67 certification. The Moto 360, meanwhile, may or may not come with such valuable feature as details are still awaited.
The LG G Watch R is expected to cost a whooping $300 or Rs. 18,000, when it goes on sale in select markets in Q4. Motorola Moto 360, on the other hand, is speculated to be priced $50 cheaper compared to the LG G Watch R.
At the end, we can already sense that the LG G Watch R has been designed to cater to a particular section of the market. Otherwise, the device seems to be well designed and feels great. If it ever comes to India, LG needs to pump extra resources to market such an expensive product. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
