LG’s next smartwatch passes through the FCC

We’ve been hearing rumblings about a new smartwatch coming from LG for a while. Now, Droid-Life spotted the watch passing through the FCC certification process ahead of its launch.


The intrigue comes down mostly to the rumor that it’ll be a hybrid Wear OS device. In the FCC filing, we see an app layout that’s different from the standard Wear OS layout. Normally you’d see apps in a vertical list, but the LG watch has apps arranged in a half circle with a label up top for the app you’re highlighting.

The FCC listing details a couple other interesting facts like the watch is indeed a circular device.

  • It also will come with no cellular connectivity but does have Bluetooth and WiFi on board.
  • It has a Snapdragon 2100 processor, 768 MB of RAM, and 4 GB of storage, all pretty standard for watches in 2018.

There’s no official announcement yet, but we expect to hear something about the device tomorrow as Google I/O kicks off.
