It has been reported over the past few months that LG is working on a new hybrid smartwatch that would combine elements of a Wear OS smartwatch with a traditional watch complete with hands for the minutes and seconds markers. This hybrid watch is expected to be called the LG Watch W7 and a new report suggests that it’s going to be officially announced on October 3rd.
Well regarded Twitter leakster Evan Blass a.k.a @evleaks has tweeted that this hybrid smartwatch from LG is going to launch as the LG Watch W7 alongside the company’s upcoming flagship smartphone, the LG V40 ThinQ.
Not much is known about this device’s design, specs, and features at this point in time. FCC filings have suggested that it may have a 1.2 inch display, 768MB of RAM with 4GB of storage. The filings didn’t mention any GPS or NFC functionality but that’s to be expected from a smartwatch that’s aiming to give customers the best of both worlds.
LG has an event scheduled for October 3rd where it’s going to unveil the LG V40 ThinQ, its next flagship smartphone that comes with five cameras. The LG Watch W7 is now expected to be unveiled alongside the new smartphone in the coming month.
