At this point of time, there isn’t much to talk about the hardware, except for the display which is said to boast a resolution of 480×480 pixels. While there is no word on if the forthcoming LG smartwatch will flaunt a circular or a square display, this marks a significant bump in resolution. Thus far, the highest resolution on an Android Wear smartwatch is 320×320 pixels on the LG Watch Urbane, and 319×390 on the Apple Watch.

To put this in perspective, the Watch Urbane features a 1.3-inch display with a resolution of 320×320 pixels, which comes up to a pixel density of 245ppi. A bump in pixels will represent a pixel density of approximately 340-400ppi. Also Read - You can now own a Bugatti at around Rs 80,000
Pixel density may not seem like an important spec, at least for smartwatches, but it could provide the required crispness to make those well-made watch faces look stunning on that small screen. While it would be good to see a high-res display on a smartwatch, the main question will be how it will affect the battery life.
