Huawei had some tablets to show at MWC 2018 in Barcelona, but that’s about all because the company has scheduled its own private event that will go down later in March. It will be at that time when the Chinese manufacturer introduces new P20 flagship smartphones, as opposed to MWC 2018 where Samsung stole the thunder. According to a new report, something else could make an appearance at the event, and that’s a Huawei Watch 3.
Huawei has been going through some rough times, which began back at CES 2018 in January. The company attempted to gain attention and popularity in the US for the first time in its history with an expansion of Mate 10 Pro, but US carriers weren’t having it. The Chinese company isn’t giving up though, and perhaps a new watch will bring some much needed optimism.
Huawei has been loyal to Android Wear despite the troubles the platform has had over recent years. It has been a while since the Huawei Watch 2 hit markets, which led many to believe a successor would unfold this week in Barcelona. This wasn’t the case, but as Tech Radar reports, Huawei confirmed that it’s currently developing a new timepiece.
Smartphones arrived in a plethora at “Mobile” World Congress, but very few mobile gadgets like smartwatches captured our interest during the big week. It’s good to know that somebody is sticking by Google and the smartwatch, though Huawei’s CEO Richard Yu claimed he’s “in no hurry to release” a new watch.
Most people don’t upgrade their smartwatch as often they do their smartphone, and Huawei continues to see success in the sales department for the Huawei Watch 2. It’s unlikely we’ll see the Huawei Watch 3 make an appearance this month at Huawei’s smartphone launch event, which would be too early, but there will be other opportunities down the road such as IFA 2018 later this year. Unfortunately, this is all we know right now. We’ll update this post with more information as we get it.
