We’ve had an inkling a new Huawei Watch GT could be in the works, and sure enough a certification has just passed through a key regulator.
A Huawei Watch GT2 Pro and Honor Watch GS Pro (these two brands usually come in pairs with near identical specs) were spotted at the EEC (Eurasian Electronic Commission).
Details are scarce but it is possible to join a few dots, which could give us a clue to what’s in store.
Firstly, the Huawei Watch GT2 was launched last September, and while the GT2e upgrade was launched earlier this year, it was merely a sportier design. So a September 2020 launch does make sense.
And the launch of the GT2 Pro could tie in with a story Wareable broke last week of Huawei rolling out its Celia voice assistant on Huawei Watch models, and that the announcement could tie in with the launch of a new smartwatch.
Other than that we don’t have much to go on, but given the Oppo Watch has just been announced globally, and we’re about to get a Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, things are getting mighty interesting in the Android watch world.
What’s more, a new GT2 isn’t even the most exciting announcement on the Huawei radar.
We reported that a new Huawei Mate watch is in the works, which could be a more high-end foil to the sporty, budget Huawei Watch range.
That’s rumored for an October reveal, alongside the Mate 40 smartphone.
