The Huawei Watch and MediaPad X2 get officially unvieled



Yesterday news broke about the Huawei Watch, a beautiful Android Wear device from an unlikely manufacturer. Today it has been officially unveiled at MWC, along with a new tablet. The Watch is aluminum, has thin bezels, and no “flat tire.” These things alone would make most Android fans happy, but it gets better.

The Huawei Watch has a 1.4-inch 400×400 AMOLED sapphire crystal display that is scratch-resistant and can be used with gloves or wet hands. It’s 316L corrosive-resistent, and has a beautiful cold-forged stainless steel body. The watch also has a heart-rate montior, barometer, and 6-axis sensor to track fitness activities. It will launch “mid-2014” in gold, stainless, and black.


The Huawei MediaPad X2 is a 7-inch tablet with cellular data connectivity. It looks like a stretched out version of something from HTC. The 7-inch display is 1080p, and it has a 2GHz Kirin ultra-octa chipset, 13MP camera, 5,000 mAh battery, and Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box. It will be available in 2GB and 3GB of RAM versions later this year.

What do you think of these great devices by Huawei? Do they have enough to compete with the likes of Samsung, HTC, and LG here in the U.S.?

Ever since I flipped open my first phone I've been obsessed with the devices. I've dabbled in other platforms, but Android is where I feel most at home.

We’re live at the HTC One M9 event at Mobile World Congress, here’s where you can watch!

  1. “Mid 2014” smh

  2. The watches look beautiful

  3. Any word on price?

  4. Word is this also uses a Snapdragon CPU designed for phones, not for watches. Every watch out using Snap CPU only uses 1 of 4 cores to save battery. Will be interesting to see if this is different.

    Mediatek is now shipping a CPU designed for watches – thinner/faster/lower power than the Snap CPUs used on current watches. But we probably won’t see watches with it until later this year. Hopefully Qualcomm also announces a new CPU designed for watches as the current Snap series is overkill for smartwatches. New thinner/low power screens coming too.

  5. The resolution is not 1080p (1920×1080); it’s beyond that, 1200p (1920×1200).

  6. That watch is the best AW watch I’ve seen thus far. I really like it
