This new leak shows off the pictures of the smartwatch, codenamed – “Halfbeak.”
The images of the upcoming HTC wearable show various features that will be a part of the package. Just like other smartwatches on the market, the HTC Halfbeak also comes with a heart rate sensor. Other information that is pretty obvious is the circular shape of the watch, like the Moto 360.
Talking about other watches, the display resolution on the HTC smartwatch is 360×360 pixel that is moderately higher than other current smartwatches.
Moreover, the HTC Halfbeak also carries an Under Armor logo on the rear panel, placed above HTC logo. Interestingly, HTC and Under Armor had collaborated for another project (UA Healthbox) in the year 2016, so it is apparent with the logo that they have partnered again.
One of the leaked images shows that the HTC smartwatch runs on Android Wear 1.x. Now, with Android Wear 2.0 version launch lurking around the corner (sometime in February) we can hope HTC Halfbeak to upgrade to the latest version soon or maybe come running it out-of-the-box.
Until now, there is no detail regarding the launch timeline for HTC Halfbeak, but we can expect the smartwatch to be unveiled at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017, in Barcelona.
