New LG smartwatch could be highest-res option yet

By Stephen Schenck August 18, 2015, 10:14 am

New smartwatches from major manufacturers are just around the corner, as we look forward to the debut of a second-gen Moto 360 from Mototola, as well as Samsung’s inaugural round-screened effort, the Gear S2. And while it’s been quite a while since we saw a new smartwatch from either manufacturer, other companies have already brought us fresh models in 2015, companies like LG. But a new rumor suggests that LG isn’t about to sit back and let these other guys take all the spotlight, and claims that the company is prepping a new smartwatch of its own, one that could offer one of the highest-res screens we’ve seen on a wearable to date.

The smartwatch in question is reportedly an Android Wear model codenamed Nemo, and while we haven’t heard much about it just yet, one detail does stick out: a 480 x 480 display resolution.

We’re not even sure if that’s circular or if LG is going all the way back to its G Watch roots with a square screen, but no matter what form it takes, with that resolution (and assuming a typical smartwatch size), Nemo could end up with the highest-density display that’s yet to be offered on a smartwatch.

There’s no word at the moment about when LG might be hoping to introduce Nemo, so something like an IFA launch might be a long shot. That said, we’ll be keeping an eye out for this guy, on the chance we’re able to pick up some new information about what to expect.
