Huawei has not revealed any specific details of the launch of this new smartwatch but we’ll have to wait to find out more information.
The Huawei Watch Buds is surely an amazing smartwatch and the leaked hands-on has excited us even further. However, this led us as a reminder of the past innovation that Huawei has made in the world of smart wearables.

Huawei Watch Buds leak shows earbuds inside a smartwatch
Today, an interesting smartwatch, Huawei Watch Buds appeared online showing earbuds inside. A design that surely deserves our attention.
An alleged image of the Huawei Watch Buds retail box leaked online, showing the first look at this smartwatch that could carry cylindrical shape earbuds inside the dial.
Inspecting the image, the smartwatch comes with a leather strap and steel frame. The overall design is quite similar to the Watch 3 series. Also, it’s labeled with “Powered by HarmonyOS“, which means the operating system will run this smartwatch out of the box.
The past render reveals that the design is quite compact and the smartwatch has maintained the thickness of a regular wearable. On the other hand, Weibo users are raging discussions about the design.
Earlier this month, a leak revealed that there’s a new device with the codename, Conan that is a sci-fi concept. Probably, the report was hinting toward Huawei Watch Buds because its design is sci-fi too.
It’s not the first time that Huawei is pursuing two-in design experiments in smart wearables. Looking back in time, we found Huawei Talkband.
Huawei Talkband comes with the two-in experiment smart band and Bluetooth earphones. You need to pick the earphone out of the smart band and it will do the work.
Huawei Watch GT Cyber:
Huawei Watch GT Cyber is another example of this new exploration trend that lead the Chinese tech maker to a design that could detach the dial from the frame. This design is praised by many people in the consumer world.
To be mentioned, Huawei FreeBuds Lipstick also has a unique mechanism. As the name reflects, Huawei is selling, earbuds inside lipstick.
The leak has not been confirmed officially by Huawei but we surely are waiting for an official statement that could lead toward the launch event sooner or later.
