Huawei Mate Watch running on Harmony OS rumored to be launching alongside the Huawei Mate 40 series in October
Huawei already has attractive smartwatches in its product lineup with the Huawei Watch GT 2 and GT 2e, but if rumors are to be believed then those wearables will soon be joined by a Huawei Mate Watch. However, while the Huawei Watch GT 2 operates on the OEM’s Lite OS, it appears the upcoming Huawei Mate Watch will get to use the company’s Android alternative: Harmony OS.
Using Harmony OS would certainly offer a potential Huawei Mate Watch increased functionality and utility over the Watch GT 2 series, and hopefully it would operate with fewer issues than Lite OS. Huawei already stated that the in-house Harmony operating system could be developed for use with wearable devices, so this particular rumor about the Mate Watch could be accurate.
The same source, @RODENT950, also offered up a potential release date for the Huawei Mate Watch and also for the Huawei Mate 40 smartphone series. The leaker mentioned a rumor that the “Chinese National Day” had been selected by Huawei to reveal its Mate-branded smart devices. The National Day of the People’s Republic of China falls on October 1.
If Huawei’s schedule has kept up then the Mate Watch is the first HongMengOS powered smartwatch, will be released with the Mate 40 series.— Teme (特米)???? (@RODENT950) June 23, 2020
