Huawei Watch 2 (2018) rumor sounds a lot like the 2017 model

Android Wear stalled perhaps due to lack of new hardware – but Huawei hasnt given up on it, it seems. What is has given is counting to 3, so heres a rumor for the Huawei Watch 2 (2018). To be fair, the specs are pretty similar so this really is more of a refresh of the 2nd-gen watch than a new model.

Its not even going to wait for the new Qualcomm chipset and instead use the Snapdragon 2100 (a rejiggered Snapdragon 210) with 768 MB of RAM and 4 GB of storage same as the current Watch 2.

The 2018 edition will also stick with the 1.2 AMOLED display (390 x 390 px), same battery, same wireless connectivity (including the e-SIM) and same sensors too: heart rate, capacitance, barometer, gyro, accelerometer, compass and ambient light.

At least we can hope for a price drop of the older model or perhaps some new color/wristband options for the new one. Or maybe it’s something about that gaming watch patent.
