According to Bloomberg, HTC will be entering the smartwatch market this week, revealing their first device at Mobile World Congress next week to only a few people, behind closed doors, getting ready for a future announcement from the company.
Bloomberg say that the device will available in a version that will use Google Now and will feature an AMOLED screen, as well as in the form of a smart bracelet that features a thin touchscreen, allowing the user to play music from their wrist and view track activity easily.
Pocket-Lint also claim that the device will be based on Qualcomm’s Toq device, featuring a Mirasol display for low power consumption, an on-board music player and connectivity for Bluetooth.
Of course nothing has been confirmed yet, and if the company are only showing the device behind closed doors, it’s likely that they aren’t very close to realising it.
We should have some more information during MWC 2014, but if we don’t, rumours suggest that HTC will release the device sometime this Christmas.
