LG to bring the G Watch R to Europe in early November, key markets to follow soon

A couple of days ago LG released the G Watch R smartwatch in Korea (for 352,000 Won, or $330), and now LG Electronics announced their global rollout plan for the flexible OLED smartwatch.

The G Watch R will be available in Europe in the beginning of November, while key markets in North America, Asia and the CIS will get the watch "soon after". In some markets, the watch will be available on Google Play. Prices are still not disclosed. As we said the price in Korea is $330 - and you can't wait, you can buy the Korean version in Amazon.com now for $398.

The G Watch R uses a 1.3" (320x320) flexible plastic-based OLED panel, Android Wear OS, a 1.2 Ghz Snapdragon 400 CPU, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage. It has a 410 mAh battery which should last about a single day.
