January 23, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Google will soon have its Android Wear 2.0 OS rolled out for the Android-powered smartwatch family. But before that, it will be showcasing the highlights of its upcoming major software upgrade with two smartwatches that was rumored to be the Nexus-alike smartwatches from the tech behemoth.

However, further leaks have now started emerging about the smartwatches, suggesting that the smartwatches are coming out from the house of LG. Besides bearing the reference design, it appears that the smartwatches won’t be donning any Nexus branding, and instead will come out under LG’s own Watch branding.

The two devices will be named LG Watch Style and LG Watch Sport, both of whose details have now been leaked courtesy of Evan Blass. Interestingly, the two devices do not pack any innovative spec lineup, but it’s all down to what the software packs.

The Watch Style will be the less-powered smartwatch that will pack a smaller 1.2-inch, 360×360 circular display. Inside, it will have a RAM of 512 MB that will come paired with a storage space of 4 GB. The device will house a battery of 240mAh battery. On the connectivity front, Watch Style will have Bluetooth and WiFi features.

On the other hand, the LG Watch Sport will be a more advanced smartwatch from the manufacturer and will have a slightly bigger screen of 1.38-inch size with 480×480 resolution. The device will also pack a better RAM of 768MB, and will carry additional connectivity option that will include cellular support and GPS. The device will also be loaded with heart rate sensor.
