Zeblaze Thor 6: Smartwatch with full-size smartphone CPU and Android 10 available in the US
While Apple and other big manufacturers dominate the international smartwatch market, there are still more and more startups coming up, especially in China, that are trying to gain a foothold in this rapidly growing market. These small companies like to take unusual approaches to their devices to attract attention. One of these manufacturers is Zeblaze, which does a lot different with its new Thor 6 smartwatch compared to established companies like Samsung.
Hence, the company has chosen the Helio P22 as its processor, which is normally intended for smartphones. Accordingly, LTE is always on board. With 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal memory, the smartwatch has considerably more storage capacity than the Galaxy Watch 3, for example. At 830 mAh, the battery should provide runtimes of two to three days. Nevertheless, the Thor 6 comes with many classic smartwatch features, which means that you can use it to track various types of sport and your pulse.
The round IPS display is 1.6 inches in size and has a resolution of 400 x 400 pixels. Furthermore, the Thor 6 has a 5-MP camera in both the front and the back. The ceramic and plastic chassis is IP67-certified and weighs 74 grams. Considering the specifications, this is relatively light. In comparison, the Galaxy Watch 3 is only a little lighter at 53.8 grams. As operating system Android 10 is preinstalled.
Currently the Zeblaze Thor 6 is not available in Europe. However, at US$219 on AliExpress the smartwatch is rather cheap for customers in the United States and is likely to make its way to Europe soon.
