The folks at Mobile Fun have made the Android Wear-powered LG G Watch available for pre-order. The smartwatch developed by LG has a price of $255 and it will apparently launch July 7th.
Google I/O keynote will begin in a few hours (by the way, you can watch it live here) and everyone is expecting to see the official debut of the first Android Wear-powered smartwatches: Motorola’s Moto 360 and LG’s G Watch. It was also rumored that Samsung will introduce an Android Wear smartwatch at Google I/O.
It’s no longer a doubt that the official launch of the LG G Watch will be at Google I/O, some reports saying that it will be given away to the attendees. So far, we’ve only been able see rumors and reports regarding G Watch’s price and release date, but Mobile Fun now made it available for pre-order. The online retailer has both the Black and Gold variants and they cost $245.99 each.
Hardware-wise, the LG G Watch is expected to arrive with a 1.6-inch screen with 280 x 280 resolution, 4 GB of internal storage, and a 400 mAh battery. Even though the battery may seem a bit small, it should be enough for about 36 hours of typical usage. Other reports indicate that LG’s G Watch will also arrive with 512 MB of RAM and a quad-core Snapdragon CPU clocked at 787 MHz, but you should take them with a pinch of salt as nothing is official until LG says so.
As I was mentioning above, the LG G Watch will be properly unveiled later today at Google’s annual technology event, allowing us to learn everything about the highly anticipated Android Wear-powered smartphone.
