Expect the battle for smartwatch supremacy to really get interesting in just a few months. It is being reported that Google will be unveil its smartwatch plans next month, with an actual announcement coming in June at Google I/O. And like they do with their Nexus, Google will not be manufacturing the hardware. Instead, LG will step up to the plate. Google is very happy with the job LG has done with the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 that tasking them with a smartwatch was an easy choice. The software for the smartwatch is believed to be based on Google Now, much like Google Glass.

In the middle of the night, @evleaks than tweeted a statement aligning itself with the previously stated announcement date. He said “Apparently Google’s smartwatch is being made by LG, and will launch at I/O.” Does he know something we don’t? Probably. But we’ll just have to keep waiting until more information trickles out until next month when Google is said to give a preview of the smartwatch.
