ZTE expected to launch its first Android Wear smartwatch soon

China-based tech giant ZTE Corp. is all set to enter the increasingly competitive Android Wear arena by launching its first Android Wear smartwatch, emerging reports suggest.

In January this year, ZTE chief executive Lixin Cheng told reporters that the Chinese tech giant would release its first Android-based smartwatch in 2017. But, nothing was revealed about the smartwatch’s features, release time and price. However, some leaked reports claim that the upcoming smartwatch would be some really striking features.

A well-known leaker, Evan Blass, aka @evleaks, posted an image of the reported ZTE Quartz on Twitter and claimed that it would come with an LTE cellular connection.

The upcoming smartwatch is also expected to have a longer battery life than other smartwatches available in the market and users would be able to use it independent of a smartphone.

It is worth-mentioning here that Evan Blass, a tech journalist, has a solid track record for getting access to early images and details of unannounced electronic devices.

One can expect to see a few more smartwatches from various manufacturers as Android Wear 2.0, the new version of Google’s watch OS, is set to be released this Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2017.
