The HTC One X10 is expected to be priced lower at 2,000 Yuan ( Rs 19,500 approximately).

HTC Under Armour smartwatch

HTC partnered with Under Armour in 2014 and it is expected that the January 12 event could witness a new product arriving out of the partnership. The media invite also highlights the U which reports indicate could mean either a HTC-made smartwatch with the Under Armour logo on the back or perhaps even a fitness wearable. In October this year, an HTC smartwatch has also been leaked on the web, but there had been no concrete evidence if it was an old prototype or a new product-in-the-making.

Additionally, there have been rumors about Google s Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches to debut in Q1, 2017. Soon after the launch of the Google-branded Pixel smartphones, it was reported that the search giant will further penetrate into the products category to bring its first set of smartwatches. Given that HTC has already partnered with Google for its Nexus smartphones, it would be interesting to see if the company announces its Google Android Wear 2.0 smartwatch at the January 12 event.
