Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC must have been kept busy with the M8 and Desire 8 smartphones to date, but if a new report from Bloomberg is to be believed, the company is also planning to enter the wearable category with its upcoming smartwatch. However, there are not much information about the device as of now.
The Taiwanese manufacturer will allegedly show off the first of three new devices to carriers at Mobile World Congress, with no plans to unveil anything in public. The smartwatch we are talking about will just be availed for preview to the carriers. The device is reportedly said to be based on the Qualcomm's Toq.
But rumors have it that HTC is also working on another smartwatch which uses Google Now service. Apart from these, the company is also working on a smart wristband with a thin touch-screen display, music player and activity-tracking features, a source close to Bloomberg revealed. But hardly any information about it is at our disposal at the moment.
Talking about the specs and technology these devices are going to use, it is reportedly said that the first smartwatch will feature Qualcomm's Mirasol display technology, Bluetooth connectivity and a music player. The second watch is based on Google's Now set of applications and will likely feature an AMOLED (active-matrix organic light-emitting diode) screen.
But again, the company has yet not decided to let these latest devices go on to the final production phase, Bloomberg report writes.
No further information pertaining to any of the above mentioned devices have appeared online so far. Thus one could say that HTC has been really working under real cover.
GizBot will be keeping a close eye on these wearables and we will let you know if any developments take place, as soon as possible. Until then stay tuned!
