LG is said to be working on a new wearable dubbed LG Watch Timepiece which is a hybrid smartwatch and will run on Google’s Wear OS. Since it is a hybrid smartwatch it won’t be a straight-up smartwatch, instead, it will have a mechanical clock setup alongside the smart functions.
The LG Watch Timepiece is said to come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 2100 chipset and has 4GB of eMMC storage and 768 MB of RAM. It is said to sport a 1.2-inches 360×360 LCD screen. As for connectivity features; it is expected to have Wi-Fi 802.11n, and Bluetooth 4.2 will be on board, but no cellular data support. It boasts a stainless steel body and IP68 water and dust-resistance certification.
It is said to come with 240mAh battery and once it drains the 240 mAh battery, the device will still be able to continue tracking time at least for upto hundred hours, or roughly upto four days. The Watch screen can display watch faces and complications you can install from the Google Play Store. It is said to measure 45.5 x 45.4 x 12.9 mm in size. It is said that the company will be shipping the wearable with a 22 mm silicone rubber strap and should also get the ability to swap with any other 22 mm silicone rubber strap.
LG Watch Timepiece hybrid smartwatch is rumored to go official as soon as this Monday, i.e., April 30th, 2018, is expected to come in two color versions: New Aurora Black and Cloud Silver and should be priced between $250 to $350 price range. We should know more details once it goes official.
