Report Suggests Huawei to Unveil Smartwatch During MWC

Huawei Logo

According to the Wall Street Journal, Huawei – pronounced “Wah-Way” – is confirmed to unveil a smartwatch at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) later this month. No details were given by officials at Huawei, but WSJ was able to report that the Chinese-based OEM also plans on unveiling a new smartphone and two new tablets alongside the smartwatch. 

We have to hope that Huawei won’t lock the device to only work with Huawei phones, since its devices aren’t necessarily popular among US buyers. It’s not that people don’t want them, it’s just a simple fact that you can’t go into your local Verizon store or AT&T store and pick up a Huawei Ascend-P1.

MWC kicks off February 24 in Barcelona, so get your wrists ready.

    This is pretty cool, outside of the US Huawei is actually going forward, I would like to see if they make something nice since being Huawei a “small” company (number of smartphone models) they should make a watch which can be plugged on any smartphone no matter the manufactor…

    My last phone was a Huawei and it was pretty decent, their UI is not good but it’s also not that bad (memory wise)

    Wasn’t this company being investigated for forms of cyber-espionage?

      My nose is being investigated for forms of cyber-espionage.

        Was that supposed to be funny? Can’t tell.

          No.

      Them and ZTE have ties to the Chinese Army.

      They software has built in malware and other security issues. Congress asked for the specific codes and the companies refused to give it.

    Hurry up Google. Where’s my Nexus smartwatch?

    • Nexoduss

      I’m there with you haha. I wanna buy the pebble so bad but I’m afraid that as soon as I do, Google will release something. I’m hoping they either release something with the next nexus tablet or phone. I just want the perfect watch that combines all of the useful features of some watches while leaving all the useless junk out. I believe that Google or Apple will be the first to do it truly right. Who knows, Google may not even release one and focus solely on glass and let everyone else have their go at the watches.

        Motorola was working on a watch with a similar concept (focusing on battery life, being on pair or at least similar to a regular watch but add some functionalities to do something people would actually want to buy), let’s hope they make something interesting this year :B (but who knows if the watch part of Moto is gonna stay on Mobility or Google)

      I have a feeling that we still have quite a while to wait until we see a potential Google Watch.

      Maybe when Google announces the unicorn.

      Who wears watches anymore besides nerds and business men?

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Cool…. I guess? huawei is a very long way away from me even considering them though. LG finally made my tracking board. Maybe huawei can do the same….at some ponit

    • Mike Aurin

      Before the Nexus line, LG was laughable at best. It only takes one stellar device to show up on the scope. I hope it’s soon because I like options.

    Hooray! :-/
