ZTE to launch Android Wear smartwatch later this year

ZTE logoJust about every smartphone manufacturer you can think of has launched a smartwatch of their own. There is Apple, Samsung, LG, Motorola (and by extension Lenovo), Huawei, and Xiaomi, just to name a few. So actually what would be weird is if some OEMs were to sit out of the smartwatch craze.

ZTE has been rather quiet on that front, but not anymore because according to the company who spoke to CNET at CES 2017, they have confirmed that they are working on an Android Wear device of their own that they are planning on launching later this year. The company has also confirmed that they have already partnered with at least one US carrier who will help them sell the watch which will also come with LTE connectivity.

ZTE to launch Android Wear smartwatch later this year

This was confirmed by ZTE’s CEO Lixin Cheng who did not disclose further details about the watch, which we guess shouldn’t be too surprising. According to Cheng, the reason ZTE is only coming in now is because they did not want to just follow blindly. He also pointed out the various issues that are plaguing current smartwatches, namely battery life, but Cheng claims that ZTE has a solution.

Whether or not ZTE can pull this off remains to be seen, but we guess we’ll just have to wait and see. No word on when ZTE plans to launch their smartwatch, but hopefully we’ll have more details to share soon.
