HTC will not launch any Android Wear smartwatches "in the short term"


Google is trying to bring as many companies under the Android Wear banner, but HTC won't be one of these companies. Even though there have been leaks suggesting HTC is likely to have a smartwatch of its own this year, things are pretty much very different than what we've thought

HTC's president Chialin Chang said in a recent interview that his company has no plans to launch an Android Wear smartwatch anytime soon. The HTC Halfbeak that we've seen in a couple of pictures a few days ago, it's just a prototype that will never make its debut on the market.

In case you're wondering why isn't HTC taking advantage of the hype built around the launch of Android Wear 2.0, the answer is very simple: the Taiwanese company hasn't found the right formula for a good wearable product.



So, despite any of the previous leaks pointing to a possible HTC smartwatch release, the Taiwanese company does not have any future plans that would validate these rumors.

After seeing the U Play and U Ultra, I think it's time for HTC to just toss in the towel and give up on phones. They've lost their magic touch and I don't see it ever coming back.
