We’ve long known that Google has been working on a watch first OEMed internally through Motorola and now through partner LG.
@evleaks has purported specs, naming a 1.65 inch diagonal display and 280×280 square resolution. Internally, you’ll have 512MB of RAM and 4GB of onboard storage – enough for some apps, MP3s and maybe a few short videos.
Evleaks usually starts leaking specs within a few weeks of launch so it could mean we’re getting ready to see Google’s
hand (wrist?) which matches up with recent information. Late last week, Google’s Android and Chrome head Sundar Pinchai announced that Google would launch a wearable SDK within a few weeks so the stars are certainly starting to align. The plan appears to be as follows: have the SDK out in March and a product available at Google I/O in June.
Late month, Samsung announced its second iteration of Galaxy Gear smartwatches, running on Tizen — not Android. Rumours about Apple’s ‘iWatch’ product also continue to swirl, with a seeming focus on health and fitness. expand full story
