Huawei to Unveil Wear 2.0-Powered Watch 2 alongside P10 at MWC

February 16, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

It’s only a week since Android’s second iteration of its smartwatch OS debuted. Along with that, we were also presented with the launch of LG’s Watch Style and Watch Sport smartwatches, the first ever to feature the latest Android Wear 2.0 OS. But with the MWC approaching, we are being assured that there will be more in the offing packing the latest smartwatch sibling of Android.

One among the batch will be the Huawei Watch 2, the successor to Huawei’s well-crafted smartwatch that was launched a couple of years ago. Huawei CEO Richard Yu has also teased the upcoming smartwatch on social platform Weibo by posting an image of a running man glancing at the Watch 2 smartwatch on his wrist.

That’s a definite indication that Huawei Watch 2 will have an extra focus on fitness tracking activities, which is not something new among Android smartwatches. It’s not sure whether Huawei will have a base model of Watch 2 made available with little focus on fitness activities.

The poster image also comes with a tagline that reads ‘Made for Free Spirits.’ If this is some indication, then we could assume that the new Watch 2 will be packing support for LTE connection. This is line with earlier rumors that suggested for a built-in SIM slot in the new Huawei Watch 2.

Along with its new watch, Huawei will also have its P10 smartphone lined up in the MWC. The teaser for the smartphone showed two circles, quite similar to the one that was previously used to tease Huawei’s dual-camera setup in P9. There is also suggestion that P10 could feature the dual lens for its front camera as the tagline in the teaser reads ‘Change the way the world sees you.’

As for what’s inside, the P10 is rumored to house the Kirin 960 in-house processor from Huawei paired with a RAM of 6 GB. Rumors also suggest a QHD resolution display making way to a non-Pro/Plus model of Huawei for the first time with P10.
