A Huawei Watch GT 2 is now rumored to launch alongside the Mate30 series
The Huawei Mate 30 (or Mate30, in accordance with its possible promotional material) series is now believed to launch in conjunction with IFA this year. Now, a new WinFuture post, written by Roland Quandt, asserts that this event will also have at least 1 new companion accessory for the OEM's latest flagships. It may be a second generation of the Watch GT.
This smartwatch gained serious traction from its release mainly due to its appreciable battery life and clear focus on health tracking. It may also have been interesting as it is not a Wear OS device; instead, it runs a preliminary example of Huawei's proprietary systems, LiteOS. Quandt now claims that the Watch GT 2 will do the same; however, whether it will be the same as that of its predecessor or not was less clear.
WinFuture has also posted a series of images that suggest this "new Watch GT" (which is also apparently known by the code-name Latona or model number LTN-B19) will not deviate much from its source design language. However, it is also projected to gain a larger battery, which is thought to be 445mAh in capacity (this is 25mAh more compared to the first-gen Watch GT).
Despite this change, it is also projected to be slimmer than its predecessor, and also to have a smaller display bezel. The Watch GT 2 may also have a microphone and speaker for calls, while retaining the heart rate monitor for which many up-to-date wearables are known. It is thought to connect using Bluetooth, and also possibly to have inbuilt GPS, yet also have LTE-enabled versions.
Judging by the image portion of this new leak, the Watch GT 2 could launch in 2 styles: one with a black silicon armband and a second with a brown leather strap. The possibility of different case (or screen) sizes is not covered in this new leak, however. Should Quandt's new leak be completely accurate, the Huawei Watch GT 2 will be released in September 2019 at an IFA event.
