With LG and Samsung having released smartwatches of their own, we’re pretty sure HTC isn’t going to sit by the sidelines and let them reap all the rewards, right? Well we’ve heard rumors about HTC planning a smartwatch of their own and according to a recent post, the possible design of the HTC smartwatch might have been revealed.
Now the question is when can we expect HTC to make an announcement? Well it seems that it could be soon, thanks to a recent video posted by HTC for a “behind the scenes” look at the company’s design studio. The video is seemingly innocent enough and shows us what HTC gets up to behind closed doors.
However at one part of the video (around the 0:34 mark), you can clearly see a watch sitting on the desk of one of HTC’s employees. While the image is a little fuzzy (as you can see above), it certainly resembles the alleged design that we saw not too long ago, which is also supposed to be based on the actual product.
That being said, we should point out that LG and Samsung’s offerings are also square in design, so there is a chance that the HTC employee could using either an LG or Samsung watch. At the same time, neither LG or Samsung’s smartwatches are docked like that, neither are they charged like that, suggesting that the device we’re looking at could indeed be HTC’s wearable.
Take it with a grain of salt for now, but we know that HTC has plans for wearables which they have confirmed for this year, but as to whether or not the device in the video is indeed HTC’s smartwatch remains to be seen, but what do you guys think?
