HTC’s First Smartwatch Images Leaked, Codenamed ‘Halfbreak’

Taiwanese tech company, HTC has been in the rumors for several techs including wearable for a while and just when the rumors seem to be dying down, the tech company is back in the news with more to stir the pot and ignite the flame.

Recall that back in September, leaked images of what would be HTC’s smartwatch found its way online and following the leak, the Taiwanese company may have suggested it would halt the program for a while.

However, it seems your wrists might be getting an HTC companion soon as more images of the smartwatch have found its way online. The smartwatch which has been christened ‘Halfbreak’is said to be a collaborative effort from the Taiwanese tech company and Under Armour, an American sports clothing and accessories company.

New images of the smartwatch found its way into Weibo although it gave little off as regards what should be expected regarding performance and quality. The images leaked online suggest the smartwatch have a round display and with a display resolution of 360 x 360 and fitted with a shiny bezel around the round screen.

The smartwatch also features a red and white triangle on the bezel which points to possible hardware buttons, and the underside appears to have been fitted with a heart rate scanner and of course, the charging connector pins.
The Halfbreak sports a rubber strap which on the inner band sports a red color but the outer portion sports a black color and runs on the Android Wear 1.3 although the Android Wear 2.0 is said to be launching no sooner than February at the MWC 2017.

HTC has however made no comments regarding the smartwatch, its availability and has also not accredited if it will be changing the name from ‘Halfbreak’ to something totally different. However, many expect the smartphone company to take advantage of the Mobile World Congress 2017 which holds later in February to release the wearable.
