Four photos depicting the packaging of the upcoming LG Watch Style smartwatch have surfaced online. GSMArena claims the photos were taken by a Best Buy employee which would explain the fact that the leaked packaging is clearly labeled as being intended for the U.S. market. The box also reveals the model of the LG Watch Style which boasts the model number LG-W270. The front of the packaging describes the LG Watch Style as a device that LG "designed with our friends at Google." The label on the box also reveals that the company's upcoming wearable was manufactured in South Korea in January, while the front of the packaging shows a black smartwatch that looks similar to the device depicted in a set of leaks that surfaced online a few weeks ago. The LG Watch Style is apparently equipped with a single button located on the right side of the wearable and ships with a regular strap.

The back of the packaging reveals that the LG Watch Style is compatible with Android smartphones running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and newer, i.e. devices supported by the Android Wear app. The label also suggests that the source of this leak is likely a store or a warehouse in California seeing how it specifically mentions certain chemicals regulated by the State of California. Four leaked images depicting the LG Watch Style packaging can be seen below.

The LG Watch Style is expected to sport a 1.2-inch P-OLED display boasting a resolution of 360 by 360 pixels. LG's latest wearable will be powered by 512MB of RAM and a 240mAh battery. The smartwatch will likely be cheaper than the upcoming LG Watch Sport as it will not ship with a heart rate monitor and also won't support LTE. The device also isn't expected to feature a GPS or an NFC adapter, but it will be IP67 certified, meaning consumers can expect a wearable that's resistant to both dust and water. The LG Watch Style will also be running the highly anticipated Android Wear 2.0 out of the box. The South Korean consumer electronics manufacturer is expected to debut the LG Watch Style and the LG Watch Sport on Thursday, February 9.
