New Delhi: Chinese tech giant Huawei is likely to launch a wearable in India on Monday. The company is hosting a press conference in New Delhi for the same and sources suggest that the company intends to launch a wearable product. It is also worth noting that this will be a launch under the Huawei branding and not the Honor sub-brand, which the company uses to sell products online.
While details of the product are sketchy, it is known that the company makes an Android wear based smartwatch called the Huawei Watch. That is the product the company may launch on Monday. The company also makes a fitness tracker called the TalkBand 2, which can also make calls.
In all likelihood, Huawei will probably launch the Watch which was announced way back in September at the IFA trade show in Berlin. We say this because Huawei only a day ago globally announced the TalkBand 3 alongside the P9 and P9 Plus smartphones, so it wouldn’t make much sense for the company to launch an older product. That said, stranger things have happened.
The Huawei Watch is considered to be the prettiest Android Wear based smartwatch. It has a 1.4-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 400×400 pixels which makes it the most pixel dense smartwatch display with 404 ppi.
It is powered by a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.4GHz. The wearable also has 512MB of RAM coupled with 4GB ROM. It has a 300mAh battery.
The Huawei Watch has a circular display dial and it comes with stainless steel watch bands like premium wristwatches. It is also available in models with classic leather watch buckles. The models with the leather bands starts at $349 in the US, while the one with the steel band starts at $399.
Considering it is based on Android Wear, it will not only work with Android but will also add limited support for iOS which powers iPhones.
