Huawei has unveiled its first Android Wear running smartwatch at MWC, Barcelona today –the Huawei Watch. The smartwatch had leaked in a couple of promo videos earlier today.
Promo videos of Huawei’s upcoming smartwatch have leaked, which reveal the story behind its luxurious design and the various features it will pack.
In November 21, Huawei finally got around to confirming that Android 5.0 Lollipop would be headed to the Ascend Mate 2. While no final date was provided, the manufacturer did say it would land sometime in the first half of 2015.
Apple is incredibly close to overtaking Samsung and becoming the world’s top smartphone vendor for the first time since 2011. In fact, during the last quarter of 2014, both companies were tied in worldwide smartphone sales, shipping 74.5 million units each.

In October of this year, Huawei confirmed that the Ascend Mate2 would not be getting updated to Android 4.4 KitKat, or updated at all.
Huawei has just unveiled its latest flagship device in Berlin at IFA — the Ascend Mate 7.
The company’s latest phablet sports an impressive design and is completely made of “true metal” with a screen-to-body ratio of 83% — which is better than what even the Galaxy Note 4 offers.
With IFA 2014 right around the corner, companies are starting to work a bit harder to get people’s attention. We’ve already seen ASUS tease their own IFA plans that will potentially see the launch of a smartwatch. While ASUS’s teaser was pretty straightforward, Huawei’s effort is a bit more off-the-wall.
Huawei might not be the most popular smartphone manufacturer out there, but it has managed to capture huge market share in the last year or so, becoming the world’s third biggest phone vendor in Q1 2014, behind Samsung and Apple. The company has published its performance results for the first half of 2014, and all signs point towards a continued growth in the coming months.
While there is always a chance that a new device from any manufacturer is right around the corner at any given moment, Huawei is a company that can manage to have one device leak out at the beginning of a month, and then launch something completely different at the end of it. That’s where their new Honor 6 comes in.
Huawei is one of the major players in China and its neighboring regions. With its range of Ascend and Honor smartphones, the company has made inroads in the midrange and high end market segments in a big way. And today we’re coming across a new device from the company leaking out in a press photo.
