We’ve seen a brief cameo of an unknown watch yesterday in HTC’s official Design Video. Rumors started that the watch is in fact HTC’s Android Wear smartwatch which is about to be released in the near future. It seems that’s not the case, HTC released an official statement in which they said the following:
HTC encourages our design team to explore and tinker with new ideas and even models, as is the case with the watch some viewers noticed in our recent HTC Design video. It in no way indicates an actual product HTC is planning to release. Keep an eye on this space for exciting new products from HTC when they are ready to be announced!
So, it’s a false alarm. This doesn’t mean they’re not working on a smartwatch though. Until we wait for more information you can check out the latest leak which allegedly shows HTC’s upcoming smartwatch.
