Huawei’s official Mate 20 launch event is just a week and a half away. But while we’re anxiously awaiting the arrival of the brand’s upcoming flagship, new information about the Huawei GT smartwatch has reportedly surfaced.
News of the Watch GT, which is the successor to the Huawei Watch 2, comes by way of WinFuture via an FCC filing. According to the filing, the Watch GT will be equipped with a 420mAh battery, allowing it to run on a single charge for a full week. Additionally, it will supposedly come with a 1.39-inch OLED display.
WinFuture also reports that the Watch GT will be available in three variants – “Classic”, “Fashion”, and an all-black “Sport” version. Beyond that, there’s still no official information about the smartwatch’s hardware. But, it’s expected that the device will come with the usual features. Which includes bluetooth, GPS, compass, pressure sensor, NFC, a heart-rate sensor, and an accelerometer.
It’s also unclear if the Watch GT will still retain the use of a Qualcomm Snapdragon mobile processor, or if Huawei will opt out to deploy the device with its own Kirin processor. Price-wise, WinFuture speculates that the watch will cost between US$220 (~RM910) and US$265 (~RM1096) upon availability. In any case, we’ll learn more about Huawei’s new smartwatch on 20 October. That is, if it even does make an appearance.
