There’s been talk of an HTC smartwatch since way back in 2013, but while there’s still no sign of a release date, the watch, believed to be codenamed HTC Halfbeak, has just been leaked in an assortment of photos.
These images, shared on Weibo (opens in new tab), match earlier leaked shots and don’t really show us anything new, with the same round display (believed to have a resolution of 360 x 360), the same plastic strap and the same heart rate sensor on the bottom.
The watch also has Under Armour branding alongside HTC’s, which again is something we’ve seen before.
But while there’s no new information here the existence of new images does suggest the HTC Halfbeak might still be in the works – though it appears to be running Android Wear 1.0, which could mean the photos actually aren’t recent, since Android Wear 2.0 is launching imminently and any new Android smartwatch (opens in new tab) is likely to use that from day one.
It could be coming soon
But that’s also cause for hope, as with Android Wear 2.0 landing in early February we’re expecting a number of new smartwatches to arrive soon after, so the HTC Halfbeak could well be among them.
