Serial leakster Evan Blass (better known as @evleaks) revealed the new LG Watch Style, showing the device in two color configurations. It will be one of the first to launch with Android Wear 2.0, the newest - and much-delayed - version of Google's OS for wearable devices. Blurry images of the device emerged last week.

The Watch Style is expected to feature a 1.2-inch fully-circular AMOLED with 360x360px resolution, along with 512MB of RAM, and a 240mAh battery.

According to Android Police, citing an unnamed 'trusted source', the Watch Style will be priced around $249. While not yet confirmed, it's believed that the device will only be offered at a single price point, but with different color options available.

Alongside the Watch Style, LG is also expected to launch the Watch Sport, which is rumored to include onboard LTE support, NFC, GPS, a heart-rate monitor, a larger display, and greater battery capacity. However, it's not yet clear how much that model will cost.
