Rumor | The Huawei Watch 3 will be a premium wearable that runs on HarmonyOS
Huawei has reportedly registered a new wearable with the model number GLL-AL04 with the EEC. According to a new leak, it might be a successor to the Watch 2. Therefore, it might be intended as a flagship smartwatch rather than a high-end sports model as with the GT series.
The GT 2 Pro ran on a version of RTOS; however, according to its latest leak, Huawei has optimized HarmonyOS for the Watch 3 instead. This new system is the OEM's first-party software, and has been billed to be cross-platform before.
Apparently, this concept will come to fruition in the Huawei "Watch 3". The latest tip suggests that its new OS will confer improved multi-tasking on the wearable, as well as expanded third-party app support. It is now also projected to incorporate eSIMs for standalone connectivity.
This new accessory is slated to launch in May 2021, which means it might debut alongside the (extremely delayed) P50 smartphone series. This would make sense, as these devices are also supposed to be extremely high-end, and may come with a new design and markedly large image sensors.
