Richard Yu, Huawei CEO, confirmed today that we would also see a new Huawei smartwatch with Android Wear 2.0.

 

Yu posted an image on Weibo that shows a male looking at his smartwatch with a tag line "Made for free spirits" which might indicate a sportier watch design. The photo doesn't reveal any specs, but we have already seen some leaks previous month.

According to them, the smartwatch will have cellular connectivity, something that the Huawei Watch didn't have. The smartwatch will have a built-in SIM card, so you will be able to receive and make phone calls even if you aren't connected to your phone.

 

Numerous carriers like T-Mobile and AT&T now enable phone number virtualization so that you can receive calls on your watch and phone at the same time. This watch may be coming at the perfect time for the technology.
