The last thing we heard about LG’s new Android Wear smartwatch, the LG G Watch, was that the device would launch in July, and now we may have some more information on what processor the device will use.
We previously heard that the LG G Watch would come with a 1.65 inch display that will feature a resolution of 280 x 280 pixels, and according to a recent report, this new smartwatch will feature a Snapdragon 400 processor.
The guys over a Phone Arena have found some information on the processor of the LG G Watch in a system dump for the device, and it is listed as an MSM8226.
This is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, which is a quad core processor that normally has a clock speed of around 1.2GHz, and this processor is being used in a range of smartphones at the moment.
If this information is correct, the the new LG G Watch would be the first smartwatch to launch with a quad core processor. We also heard previously that the device would come with its own SIM card slot.
The LG G Watch is said to use a USIM, and this would mean that the device would be able to be used independently of smartphones and tablets.
You would be able to make and receive calls from the LG G Watch, and also check your email and send and receive text messages, without having to pair the device to your smartphone.
We are hoping to find out more information about the new LG G Watch later this month, the device is expected to launch next month, and is rumored to retail for around £180 in the UK.
