HTC supposedly working on an Android Wear device codenamed Halfbeak

HTC Halfbeak Android Wear

#HTC was rumored to be releasing an #AndroidWear smartwatch before, but sadly not much came of it. A new report is talking about this again, claiming that the Taiwanese manufacturer is currently working on an Android Wear smartwatch codenamed Halfbeak. It is said that HTC will use a round display with the wearable, accompanied by a resolution of 360×360.

This means that the wearable will be similar to the LG G Watch R and the Moto 360 in terms of design. But knowing HTC, expect there to be more emphasis on design and the quality of materials used. It is possible that HTC will reveal the wearable at its September 29 event, where the company will show off the One A9 and another handset.

Incidentally, Google’s Nexus launch event is also scheduled for the same day, which might not exactly be a coincidence. We’ll keep an ear to the ground for more details on this mystery wearable from the company. Since HTC was originally listed as a launch partner for Android Wear last year, it’s about time that the company releases a smartwatch.
