HTC to launch Android-powered smartwatch next year: Report
Just two days after Financial Times reported HTC is working on a wearable device, more details have come out via Bloomberg. The news outlet reveals that this wearable device is going to be a smartwatch and will be released sometime in the second half of 2014.
According to Bloomberg’s sources, pricing and other details of the HTC smartwatch are a mystery right now but it is said to be powered by Android. It will also feature a camera like Samsung’s Galaxy Gear watch.
