Key Huawei Watch GT features reiterated by trusted source, Classic model rendered
Following in the footsteps of a nearly two-year-old Huawei Watch 2, the Huawei Watch GT is expected to arrive alongside the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro smartphones on October 16. A number of already rumored specifications are reiterated in a new report from WinFuture’s prolific Roland Quandt, who is also in a position to reveal the first (low-res) Huawei Watch GT Classic render.
Like its forerunner, the Watch GT will apparently be sold in two different variants, dubbed Classic (or Fashion) and Sport. Oddly enough, both models are tipped to offer Multi-Sport and Sport Coach functionality, mainly differing from a cosmetic standpoint.
As such, the Huawei Watch GT Classic is pictured with a black-and-silver bezel, as well as an extremely elegant brown leather strap, while the all-black Watch GT Sport should probably follow its predecessor’s suit by settling for a workout-friendly rubber band.
Interestingly, the Huawei Watch GT is pretty much guaranteed to sport a large 1.39-inch circular AMOLED display while retaining the 420 mAh battery of the Watch 2, which should nonetheless allow it to boost endurance between charges to a whopping 14 days in “watch mode with all features on.”
That must mean Qualcomm’s new energy-efficient Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor is finally starting to spread, although it might be wise to wait for official confirmation before getting too excited.
That’s not bad at all, and it could mean the Huawei Watch GT will start at an affordable $199 in the US.
