The first shows connected to exploit the Android Wear platform unfolds a little more, with details of its characteristics.
LG Electronics has partnered with Google to develop a smartwatch called LG G Watch which should be the first to arrive on the market at early summer.
The Korean company confirmed its existence with an overview of its design but without giving much details about its features. The Wall Street Journal provides new information indicating that the G Watch will have a LCD display of 1.65" with a density of about 240 ppi, against the Gear 2 with 278 ppi and 200 ppi for Samsung more generally on other connected market watches.
This confirms earlier leaks which also suggested a display 1.65" with a resolution of 280 x 280 pixel IPS LCD panel. Economic's newspaper also mentions a range of about two days to use display notification messages and SMS.
The watch uses the Android Wear platform and may therefore trigger interactions with a simple voice request "Ok Google". It will be compatible with devices using a recent version of Android.
Finally, the watch will function as a smartphone companion and not as a standalone product that can take calls, as there are a few models on the market, further clarified by the Wall Street Journal.
