Huawei To Take A Bite Of Apple
The company says it plans to stand out by making watches that actually look like watches, not like gadgets.
In a presentation at the conference, Richard Yu, shrugged off concerns about the Apple iWatch, noting that both Huawei and Apple are jumping into the race at about the same time. “For the smartwatch, Apple is also just in the beginning,” he said. “We think we can do better.”
The move comes one year since the release of the Android-powered Galaxy Gear, a period during which Samsung has released no fewer than six smartwatches – though none has met with shattering sales.
