With rumors of HTC working on new categories like tablets and wearables, it’s only a matter of time before more credible data surfaces. The company has found some new air with the launch of the HTC One (M8), so this would be the smartest time to expand its mindshare through other well-made products in different categories. The company has just launched an HTC Design video showcasing the mentality that drives the its design, and whether intentional or non intentional, the company seems to have just leaked its smartwatch.
In the following video you can slide to the 35-second mark and notice that on the designer’s table there are two docs, one that is empty, and one that clearly shows a smartwatch being tested on the dock. At another point at the 43-second mark you can also notice that a designer is rendering what seems to be a squared smartwatch on his computer display as well. Sadly these minor leaks don’t give us much detail on what to expect for the future of HTC wearables, but it does show us that the company does have one in mind.
We’ll keep you posted as more rumors emerge, though we do worry about the fact that Android Wear is still not something we can fully praise in our own review. Hopefully this doesn’t affect HTC’s plans to launch a smartwatch this year.
