Yet Another New Smartwatch From Huawei, This Time The Company Skips Qualcomm Chips

Huawei has been on a roll this year with some great launches that have taken the world by storm. The Chinese telecom giant has given the world an array of beautiful, elegant, and highly functional products. While they recently launched the new “Honor Magic 2” alongside the “Huawei Watch GT” in late October, they have released a public document that tells of yet another smartwatch to be expected in the near future.

Information So Far

This document does not tell us too much regarding the upcoming smartwatch. Although, it does let us know a few things of major interest. Primarily it tells us that the “ELF-G10” is indeed a smartwatch for Huawei as stated in the product list. But what is more interesting is that in the “Referenced Qualified Design”, in front of “Company” the name says “MediaTek Inc.”. This indicates that instead of going with the conventional Qualcomm chipset for smartwatches, Huawei has decided to use MediaTek’s chipsets. Could this be a cost-saving measure to bring the value even into an even more affordable range? or could it be that the Telecom giant decided that the former chipset performed better than the latter for its intended purpose.

The last element that piques interests is Bluetooth 4.0 certification. This means that the watch will meet the Bluetooth 4.0 low energy standard. This means that the watch will have a good battery life and should easily last for the better part of the day if not for the entirety of it. It should ship with Huawei’s standard Lite OS, unless the company has something different for watches with the MediaTek chips.

For the time being, Huawei has not disclosed any more information about this smartwatch. There’s a image provided but it is highly likely that some release banners will be surfacing sooner or later.
