LG Watch Style Packaging Leaked Ahead Of Google’s Rumored February 8th Android Wear 2.0 Debut

There is a rumor going around that Google will unveil its Android Wear 2.0 platform for wearables on Wednesday, February 8. As we get closer to that date, there is a fresh leak of a wearable that might be running Android Wear 2.0. Pictures showing the retail packaging for LG's upcoming LG Watch Style show what the smartwatch will look like, along with the hardware and features that will make it tick.

The pictures were leaked by a Best Buy employee to GSMArena. Shots of the retail box show a device with a circular face and a single button on the right side. There is no mention of the strap size, but it appears to either 20mm or 22mm in width, both of which are pretty standard.

According to the listed specs, the LG Watch Style (or LG-W270, as is printed on the retail packaging) sports a 1.2-inch display with a 360x360 P-OLED display. It will also have 512MB of RAM, a 240 mAh battery, and IP67 certification for water and dust resistance.

There are some features that it will not come with. Most notably, the LG Watch Style will not have 3G or 4G connectivity, nor will it have a GPS or support NFC. Without those sensors, it is reasonable to expect the LG Watch Style to be less expensive than the LG Watch Sport, which does include those amenities.

Famed leaker Evleaks pegs the Android Wear 2.0 launch being push up a day to February 8. According to him, both the LG Watch Sport and LG Watch Style will launch on the same day and both will be the first devices to run Google's generation operating system for wearables.

Let us hope that is true, as Android Wear 2.0 has been a long time in the making. It was actually announced last year at Google I/O and slated to launch last fall, but was pushed to the first quarter of 2017.
