The Huawei Watch 2 gets revealed prior to MWC announcement
Mobile World Congress, one of the largest trade shows for the world of mobile technology, will soon be underway. Our team just landed in Barcelona to provide up-to-the-minute coverage during the event, and we're expecting a lot of exciting products to be unveiled at this year's conference. Plenty of companies and and gadgets will be available to look at, with one of those being that of Huawei.
Huawei's main focus will likely be on the P10 smartphone, but along with that, we're also expecting the company to take the wraps off of the Huawei Watch 2. 2015's Huawei Watch is still considered to be one of the best Android Wear watches to date, so there's a lot of anticipation riding on the announcement of its successor. Previous reports have suggested that the Watch 2 will feature a much sportier design as compared to the original Watch's classy aesthetic, and a new batch of photos showcasing the Huawei Watch 2 all but confirm these claims.
The press renders come by way of famous leaker Evan Blass, and they leave nothing to the imagination in regards to what the Watch 2 will be bringing to the table. The appearance of the Huawei Watch 2 is a complete departure from the original Watch, featuring a rugged body, two physical buttons for performing various actions, and what looks to be a proprietary rubber watch band. Although easily swappable watch bands are usually preferred by most customers, it looks like the proprietary nature of the Watch 2's bands will allow for nanoSIM card functionality so that you can use the Watch 2 as a standalone device.
In addition to the nanoSIM support and sportier design, the leaked images also showcase three color options for the Watch 2 - black, bright orange, and a grey model with speckles of white scattered throughout. There's currently no word of pricing or availability, but expect all of these details and more to be outed at Huawei's press event that's scheduled to take place on Sunday, February 26.
