New Specs Leaked on Google’s Smartwatch

Google google-watch-2[1]has long been rumored to be working on a smartwatch first internally through Motorola and now with partner LG, and now we finally have an idea what the specs will be.

The ever reliable @evleaks has just tweeted some details on the unnamed smartwatch. They’re incomplete, but it was enough to whet my appetite:

That is a larger screen than found on most smartwatches and in addition to being higher resolution it is also slightly sharper than other watches, many of which use a 1.5″ screen with a resolution of 240 x 240. But it’s still a smaller and lower resolution screen than on the recently announced Samsung Gear 2 smartwatches. This watch also has the same amount of RAM and storage as on Gear 2, but the processor is still a mystery.

@evleaks has been shown to be consistently reliable in the past, so these specs are the real thing. And they are probably also a sign that the watch is going to ship in the next few months. This  matches up with previous rumors. which had claimed that the watch would be announced this month and debut in June at Google I/O. And late last week, Google’s Android and Chrome head Sundar Pinchai announced that Google would launch a wearable SDK within a few weeks, also suggesting that a new wearable would launch.
