Does the LG G Watch have a Snapdragon 400 inside?

It does need to be mentioned right off the bat that build.prop files do have a higher tendency than most leak sources to be inaccurate; but, assuming the system dump is real, there is a better chance that this will shake out. The build.prop lists the board of the LG G Watch as "msm8226", which is the model number for the Snapdragon 400 SoC. If this is accurate, it would make the G Watch the first quad-core processor. The file also lists the software build version as "4.4W". This seems to indicate that Android Wear is based on 4.4 KitKat, which is what we expected.
The build ID for the software is KKV51. For those of you who haven't learned to read Android build codes yet: the first letter represents that it is a build of KitKat; the second letter is the branch of the code, and K indicates and early branch (final releases tend to be R or higher); and, the third letter is something of a timestamp, with V dating the software for Q2 2014. So, at the very least, we are looking at a new build of the software.

One thing they left out is that their are 3 versions of Snapdragon 400 CPUs, 1 quad core, and 2 dual cores. Most likely it would be a less power hungry quad core CPU, and one of the dual core SD 400's instead. Just like the Gear 2 and Gear Neo watches have dual core CPUs in them.

Wouldn't this have excessive battery drain? Such a small battery that kind of processor

not necessary...soc has A7 cores...very low power consumption...and those can be turned on and off individualy. Only surprise I see here is msm parts have modem too for wireless connectivity...I'd want my smart watch to pair with my phone...not become a phone on my wrist!
