Earlier in the year, Huawei launched the Watch 2 (2018) in the market. The smartwatch is essentially an upgraded version of a smartwatch with the same, but with the key addition of e-SIM support. While Huawei has been touted to launch another smartwatch this year, new rumors have surfaced online, which hints at it being called the Watch X, instead of the Watch 3.
The news comes from 91mobiles, who claims to have spotted Huawei applying for a new trademark from the European Union Intellectual Property Office, for a new device being dubbed as Huawei Watch X. The listing clearly states the device to be a smartwatch. It also states the device to be “featuring a telephone,” which hints at the device carrying LTE support or the e-SIM support like its predecessors.
That said, we’re not sure what other features Huawei plans on bringing to the table with the Watch X. Considering the fact that the company is taking a step away from its usual naming pattern, we could expect some radical changes this time around. Earlier in the year, Huawei was also spotted patenting a smartwatch design that can store a pair of wireless Bluetooth earbuds in its band.
However, nothing can be confirmed yet. The fact the Huawei has just applied for the trademark also means that there’s still a long way to go before it launches in the market. We expect more rumors to surface in the coming few weeks and months.
