Huawei to announce a smartwatch at MWC: Report
New smartphone and two tablets in tow as well
Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei is getting ready to showcase its first smartwatch at Mobile World Congress later this month. According to a report in Wall Street Journal, along with this smartwatch, Huawei will also showcase a new smartphone and two tablets.
While it remains to be seen whether smartwatches will be the next big thing, every consumer electronics maker is jumping in the arena to secure its spot, so that if it ever really breaks out, they are not sitting on the sidelines. After the likes of Sony, Samsung, ZTE and more, now Huawei is jumping in the smartwatch segment.
There are no details available right now about the smartwatch but if WSJ is correct, we will see it real soon. Huawei will also be introducing a successor to Ascend P6 and two new tablets at MWC.
According to rumours, the P6 successor will be known as Ascend P7 (codenamed Sophia) and will come with 5-inch full HD display, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera and 2460 mAh battery. The phone will reportedly be powered by the company’s quad-core Cortex-A9 HiSilicon Kirin910 processor.
On the tablets front, one of the two upcoming Huawei tablets is expected to be MediaPad X1. It was recently spotted in the wild and pack 7-inch full HD 1920x1200p display, same processor as Ascend P7 and 3G support. It will also feature 1.3MP front camera, 5MP rear camera, 2GB of RAM and Android. There is no word on the other tablet.
