ZTE has been trying to catch the limelight in the smartphone world with their expensive models, and now they have re-entered the smartwatch world… this time with a bang. Last year they offered a rather clunky, substandard watch called the BlueWatch, but this new offering is miles above.
Thanks to the conventional round design, it not only looks cool but also has decent features. Since Google Services are banned in China, the smartwatch will run Tencent OS – a modified version of Android.
It has voice control, a 1.4-inch sapphire-coated display, Bluetooth 4.1, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of built-in storage and a 300mAh battery. It’s 42mm in diameter, weighs 49g and 11.5mm thick. While these are mediocre features, and battery life will most likely be one day, the only thing that could set the smartwatch apart is the gesture control feature.
Remember that Aria has already hinted to incorporate this handy feature in Pebble Time and Android Wear watches, but a baked in feature will obviously be more powerful and more robust.
The ZTE Axon smartwatch will do the normal stuff such as phone call, message alerts, and fitness tracking.
The details about the smartwatch are scarce, because the manufacturer hasn’t divulged any. The watch will be launched in Chain, and that’s most probably where it will stay. We also don’t know anything about the launch date or pricing details, but will keep our eyes peeled to catch more info, so stick around by liking our Facebook page
