A set of images showing the HTC smartwatch known as "Halfbeak" for now has just surfaced on Weibo. Usually mentioned as HTC One Watch by the rumors and leaks we encountered so far, this smart wearable might be one of the many Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches expected to hit the market later this year.

While the specs have not been unveiled at this stage, the images show a round smartwatch with two buttons on the right that carries the Under Armour co-branding on the back. The photos of its back also reveal some pogo pins for charging and a heart rate sensor. Regarding its software, the unit shown by the latest leaked images seems to be running a mid-2015 version of Google Play Services and Android Wear.

Android Wear 2.0 is expected to launch in around three weeks, so quite a few smartwatches are supposed to be unveiled at the end of the month in Barcelona, during MWC 2017. Unfortunately, HTC did not confirm anything yet, so we will keep an eye on this story and get back to it as soon as something new surfaces.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
