Gizchina News of the week
The Huawei Watch 4 series comes out two years after the Huawei Watch 3 series. The Huawei Watch 3 series was the first wearable with HarmonyOS 2 and built-in LTE. The Watch 4 could debut alongside the Huawei P60 series later this month; however, Huawei has yet to announce official details about the lineup.
Leaks show that the Watch 4 series will probably have satellite communication. It will let you send and receive SMS messages even without a cellular network. With this brand-new feature, Huawei could be the first smartwatch in the world to have satellite SMS. The frame of the smartwatch is likely to be made of high-quality zirconium, but it might cost more than a regular watch.
Huawei could also improve LTE technology for local calls and change its appearance. Rest assured that we’ll inform you when this upcoming smartwatch gets its official name.
