Alleged Google Smartwatch Specs Leaked by @evleaks

Details of Google’s alleged wearable gadget or smartwatch keep appearing every now and then, but everything so far has been a leak, rumor, speculation or pure fantasy.  Not now, just till you read the title.  If you are not a newbie in the world’s technology platform, you may have heard of the reputation of @evleaks as the leading tipster with the highest rate of confirmations.  Today, @evleaks reports that Google is indeed working on a smartwatch, and as it had been rumored earlier this month, it is most likely being manufactured by Google’s Nexus 5 partner, LG.

The possibility of Google working on their own smartwatch is very high now as even the timing of the release is projected to be during the Google I/O developer conference to be held in San Francisco in June.

According to @evleaks’s tweet today, the Google smartwatch will have a 1.65 inch 280 x 280 pixels resolution LDC display, 512MB of RAM and 4 GB of onboard storage.  Unfortunately, there aren’t any more details that would really make us picture where the device will be positioned in the global smartwatch listing including the actual design, the processor, core uses, integration with other devices like the Google Glass and Android smartphones and the battery.

Samsung announced its Galaxy Gear 2 smartwatch with a 1.63 inch 320 x 320 pixels resolution, a 1 GHz dual-core processor and a 300mAh battery that promises up to 3 days of use.  Google’s smartwatch has to be better especially in hardware specs to make an entry into a market with over 10 different smartwatches already including Samsung’s, LG’s and Sony’s.

I hope that the floodgates of leaks has just been opened and we will be seeing more of leaks, especially with pictures, of the Google smartwatch since we all secretly hope that the giant company is known for its technological inventions and changes that affect an entire market.  For now, this is all we have.

  1. You don’t see many watches on wrists these days. I’m sure if it works wit,h or without, the cell phone we will be seeing more of these being worn. If the cost is too high people won’t buy it. It’s a lot easier to read from a phone than a watch.

  2. I get the same thing from it but I am curious how many people actually wear these things? I don’t know any one that even wears a regular watch anymore let alone a smart one.

  3. This makes me think of 007 for some reason, ha! Seriously though, I think the idea is good but until these gadgets can offer more functionality than a cell phone or at least the same functionality for a fraction of the price, I don’t think they can really compete with what’s already available.

  4. For me, a basic gadget which tracks my activity without being paired to my phone, shows time, and syncs the activity data to the cloud when connected to the internet is good enough. If I want to make calls or write a text message, I’ll take my phone out. It is pointless reading emails on such a small screen, let alone replying to those emails.

  5. A Google Smartwatch might be interesting. However, what we can do with smartwatches seems very limited. The idea around it just seems like convenience, as in you don’t have to take your phone out of your pocket to look at notifications and emails. To me, it seems pretty worthless–I really don’t need anymore notifications or technology in my face. However, I wonder what Google could do with a smartwatch, as they do some pretty amazing things over there in the X Labs. I guess what I’m saying is that we need less things that put notifications in our face, and more personal interaction…Yeah. I’m one of “those” people. 😛
