LG Watch Timepiece will have physical watchface above display
Android Headlines now reports that the LG Watch Timepiece will feature a display as well as a mechanical watchface on top of a stainless steel body and a default 22mm silicone band. There will also be a Watch Timepiece+ with a different design, options for a silicone or metal strap and an extra cradle for users to charge their watch in two places. All new release will have elements-proofing to IP68 levels. Its 12.9mm thickness falls between the Watch Style and Watch Sport, but it’s relatively svelte surface area-wise.
In fact, the Timepiece is probably best described as an option between the Style and Sport. The clock arms are placed above a circular LCD with a diameter of 360 pixels over 1.2 inches — about as robust as the Style. Inside, we find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 2100 with 768MB of RAM — on par with the Sport — and 4GB of on-board storage. The Timepiece will only have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2, but it does have a USB-C port. NFC, GPS, and other instruments will be available. The 240mAh battery seems paltry, but a timekeeper cell will be able to keep Quartz-based time for about 4 days more.
Expect New Aurora Black and Cloud Silver finishes to be announced — no pictures have surfaced of the LG Watch Timepiece, which may go under different names in certain regions. Again, there’s a supposed announcement tomorrow, just days before the LG G7 ThinQ launch and a general launch timeframe for the V35 ThinQ, which Android Headlines has also leaked details of. Stock won’t reach stores until June and no prices told as of yet.
