At IFA 2019, Huawei introduced the world’s first Bluetooth 5.1 and Bluetooth Low Energy 5.1 wearable chipset – Kirin A1. At the stage, Huawei also unveiled new TWS earbuds – Huawei FreeBuds 3 powered by this Kirin processor.
Following the event, Huawei unveiled its first smartwatch equipped with Kirin A1 named Huawei Watch GT 2 that can provide up to 2 Weeks of battery backup.
Aside from these two products Huawei also used it in some new wearables including Watch GT 2e, Gentle Monster Eyewear, and Honor MagicWatch 2.
However, there’s also room for more. Because a new report from 91Mobiles suggests that Huawei will bring some new product that will feature Kirin A1.
According to the report, Huawei will launch new headphones, smart eyewear, and smart speaker powered by Kirin A1 chipset with an expected launch in 2020 and 2021.
This information is given by Huawei’s Director of Wearable and Audio Product Marketing, Zach Yang. He said the company is looking to expand its portfolio of Kirin A1 product in the coming two years.
However, Zach didn’t reveal anything specifics on the products Huawei planning to launch or their names.
The size of Kirin A1 chip is smaller than the flagship Kirin 990 series and also from Apple’s H1 chip. It has Isochronous Dual Channel Bluetooth data transmission technology with lower latency and lower power consumption architecture compared to other chips in the market, which helps it to deliver the best performance.
Huawei Watch GT Cyber smartwatch launching soon
New inputs reveal that there’s a new smartwatch – Huawei Watch GT Cyber that could launch soon. This launch will be hosted alongside the revealing of the Huawei P50 Pocket New with a stripped chipset.
This surprising information took place on the Weibo blog of the very famous @FactoryDirectorShiGuan. According to him, Huawei will hold one more conference by the end of this month. The date of this launch event might be near October 25.
If this info proves to be correct, and the Chinese manufacturer rotates his launch chair in the right position then we will grab the new Huawei P50 Pocket foldable variant within a few weeks.
Wait, that’s not it. The tipster has slid the information towards one more product. Alongside the new foldable version, Huawei could also introduce the unique Watch GT Cyber wearable product. That means, not only one but we could have two devices on the user’s ground.
Though it’s quite exciting news, there is no official statement from the company side over this matter. Since the new P50 Pocket is the next model running on the rumor surface, there are huge possibilities that we will catch a launch event at the end of this month.
Huawei P50 Pocket New Variant
The new P50 Pocket will equip the entry-level Snapdragon 778G processor. Yet, there will be no compromise in terms of performance. On the other hand, it will showcase almost the same features and characteristics as the other P50 Pocket models.
The folding device has already got the network certification with model number BAL-AL80. In comparison to previous models, this new version will be cheaper in terms of price. Thus, after the release, we could find more folding phone users in the market.
Apart from the foldable phone, the new term we heard today is the Cyber version of Watch GT. So far, we were looking into the topics related to the GT 4 devices. But here are some new additions to this subject.
Is this the same Watch GT 4? Or is it a separate version? And if this watch is a separate version, then what about the Watch GT 4 series? Don’t worry as we will bring the answer to these questions soon in front of you. Till then, you can have a detailed look over the Watch GT 4 series, below.
