According to rumors last summer, LG could have presented two new smartwatches at the IFA 2018 that took place from August 31st to September 5th, both based on Google’s Wear OS platform. So it was not. “LG Watch Timepiece” was supposed to be one of two wearables. Now, New reports suggest that LG will present a new Wear OS-based smartwatch in October alongside with the LG V40 ThinQ smartphone on October 3rd. It should be the Watch Timepiece smartwatch or Watch Libre which has been rumored in the past few months, but the commercial name will be LG Watch W7, according to the leaker @evleaks.
LG Watch W7 should arrive with a stainless steel body measuring 45.5×45.4×12.9mm, protection against water and dust (IP68 certification), 1.2-inch LCD screen with resolution of 360×360 pixels, a 240mAh battery, 4GB of memory eMMC, 768MB of RAM, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 3100 chipset , Wi-Fi 802.11n, bluetooth 4.2, USB type C.
Half a year later, this will launch alongside the LG V40 ThinQ as the LG Watch W7. https://t.co/vEXJ6BOvvG
