When it comes to events like Mobile World Congress, CES, or even IFA, many manufacturers try to exercise subtlety in their product teases: a hint of a display here, a glimpse of a camera there. Usually, they want to save the big unveil for the official announcement. Or, you know, they could have the product featured in all its glory in the airport at which every journalist attending the conference will have to land.
That’s what Huawei has done with its smartwatch. The company confirmed plans for an Android Wear device at the end of January. It told members of the media that it would announce a watch sometime this year, and it looks like MWC might be the stage for the big reveal.
Android Central reports that these posters are on display at Barcelona-El Prat Airport. With press conferences all day Sunday, most journalists are arriving in Barcelona today and tomorrow and they surely can’t miss these things. The posters don’t give much detail about the device, but we can see that Huawei has decided to follow the round trend that was championed by Motorola and, later, LG, Alcatel One Touch, and perhaps Samsung if the rumours are to be believed.
As far as software is concerned, it’s supposedly Android Wear, so you can expect all the same tricks we’ve seen from the Moto 360, the Gear Live, the G Watch, and others. What we don’t know is pricing and availability. Huawei has its press event scheduled for this Sunday, March 1st, so sit tight for another day or so and we’ll have all the answers.
