Are these Google's secret Android Wear 2.0 flagship smartwatches?

Rumors have been circulating for a while now that Google will launch Android Wear 2.0 with a pair of flagship smartwatches that will showcase the platform's latest features. Evan Blass (of evleaks fame) has leaked what he claims to be the two watches, which have been designed and built by LG. 

The LG Watch Style is the smaller model, with a 1.2-inch 360 x 360 circular screen, IP67 build, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, a 240mAh battery and connectivity that's limited to Bluetooth and WiFi.

There's also a larger LG Watch Sport model with a 1.38-inch 480 x 480 circular display, IP68 build, LTE connectivity, GPS, a heart rate sensor and support for Android Pay. You also get more RAM (768MB) and a larger battery (430mAh).

According to Blass, the Watch Sport will come in titanium and dark blue, while the Watch Style will be available in titanium, silver, and rose gold.

Venturebeat claims that Google and LG will officially unveil these smartwatches on 9th February — at an event for the platform’s official launch — and begin selling them in the U.S. the next day.
