Huawei Smartwatch Leaks Ahead Of Feb Reveal
It looks like Huawei will join ranks with LG in supporting Google`s Android Wear 2.0 with a new smartwatch, called the Huawei Watch 2.
A follow up to last year`s device, it`s expected to be revealed at this year`s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Prominent tech writer Evan Blass cites inside sources and claims that the new wearable will feature a sportier metalic look with a 1.4-inch display.
He says Huawei are banking on the addition of cellular connectivity to help inspire interest in consumers.
It`ll run on Android Wear 2.0 but, beyond that, very little is known. Expect further details to trickle out when Google unveil the new version of their smartwatch OS in early-February.
It’s unknown what new features the software update will bring to Android Wear users but Google recently acquired startup Chronologic to assist with development.
LG is also expected to debut a pair of new smartwatches at the event.
Additional reveals from major tech players like Motorola or Samsung are at this stage unlikely.
The Huawei Watch 2 itself is set for a reveal at this year`s Mobile World Congress, though sources say that this timeline might not be set in stone.
