LG G Watch R launches in South Korea next week
LG announced the G Watch R smartwatch back in late August and then revealed this round wearable to the public at IFA 2014 in Berlin, one week later. This is the company's first round smartwatch and also the first such wearable in the world to use a circular Plastic OLED (P-OLED) display that occupies the entire surface of its watch face.
LG G Watch R is IP67-certified for protection from dust and water, runs Android Wear and packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC coupled with 512 MB of memory and 4 GB internal storage. The 1.3-inch round display has 320X320 pixels.
LG officially confirmed in a press release that G Watch R launches next week in South Korea. This way the G Watch R becomes the second round smartwatch to hit the market, after the Motorola Moto 360. Its price on the South Korean market will be around $330 USD. Unfortunately, international availability and pricing have not been announced yet.
