Almost every big company known for its smartphones has made a smartwatch, Samsung, Apple, Motorola, Huawei and many others are in the wearables race, but what’s holding back HTC, well, the company seems to be preparing for a circular smartwatch to be unveiled in the MWC 2016.
We have previously thought that HTC was going to launch its own smartwatch on 2014, but here we are in the last days on 2015, and nothing is here, but few days ago and according to an Evan Blass tweet from evleaks “HTC fans, you’ll finally have One watch to call your own come February.“, this should be taken seriously knowing that evleaks always impress us with hot news and leaks. According to rumors, the device is going to be tagged HTC One smartwatch and it will be featuring a round display with a 360×360 resolution.

Earlier in October 2014, Jason Mackenzie HTC Americas head stated: “We had originally planned to have a wearable launch in this time frame, it ended up just not being ready.” Another statement from Drew Bamford the head of HTC Creative Labs is like the following: “We’ve seen a lot of general purpose wearables come to market, There’s not a strong reason to wear one every day. When we come to market with our product we want to make sure the product has a strong point of view and there is a really compelling reason to strap it on your wrist.”
Combining both these leaks and HTC statements, the next year, specially MWC could witness the birth of an Android Wear HTC smartwatch, are you excited about it?
