As the expected official launch of the LG G Watch comes closer and closer, people are getting even more curious to see what the actual watch looks like. A new leaked photo showing the smartwatch has confirmed some of the rumoured specs as well as revealing some new information about the latest addition to the wearable gadgets family.

The photo shows the watch being charged using what looks like a microUSB charging cable. What’s even more interesting is that there’s a message on the watch saying “Install Android Wear on your phone”. This looks like the phone that will be paired with the smartwatch should have an Android Wear app installed in it. The LG G Watch and the other newcomer to the market, the Moto 360 will be the first smartwatches that will be using the Android Wear platform.

An RFQ sheet leaked a few weeks ago confirmed some of the rumours that had been floating around regarding the specifications of the LG G Watch. If the spec sheet is to be believed, it will be 37.9 x 46.5 x 9.95 mm and will have a 1.6 inch display and a 280x280 pixels resolution. It will also be running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset and will have a 512MB RAM, 4GB of built-in storage and a 400 mAh battery.

It is expected to be officially announced at Google’s I/O developer conference by next week. The price is estimated at around $199 for the US market and will be available for purchase by July. While the specs are also a bit lower, the LG G Watch is also much cheaper than Samsung’s Gear 2.
