Today Google broke major news about their new Android Wear which is Google’s wearable platform which is in the form of a watch, for now. Right after the announcement LG and Motorola announced that they would both be releasing their own smart watches that run on the brand new Android Wear. Until now, we had more information about either of the devices except that they would both be released in Q2 / this summer and that both watches look very impressive. Now we have confirmed that Qualcomm will be powering future Android Wear devices with their chipsets.
“We’re excited to share that we’ve been working behind the scenes with Google, and our OEM customers, to enable the development of a number of Android Wear-based devices that will be powered by Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processors.”
While it is no surprise that Qualcomm will be powering these devices since they already power almost every Android device, it will be interesting to see how their own smart watch evolves in the future. Besides the processor brand we still do not have much information about either of these specific devices or any future ones. We do know that Motorola will be hosting a Hangout tomorrow and will be specifically discussion the Moto 360 so we hope to find out more then.
