Huawei has apparently been working on a new smart band which is now set for an official unveiling on June 12, according to a new product teaser shared by the company. Fans of the brand may recall that Huawei will also launch the Honor Band A2 near the end of this week on June 9, meaning that the mysterious new smartband will be officially introduced just three days after the Honor Band A2 goes on sale. Details on the matter are currently scarce, however, the Huawei Honor Band 3 will presumably hit the shelves as a more premium alternative to the Honor Band A2.
News regarding the Huawei Honor Band 3 broke recently through China’s Weibo network where an official invite for the device’s launch event has been passed along by the media. The image calls enthusiasts to join the unveiling event set for June 12 and heavily implies that one of the stars of the show will be the Huawei Honor Band 3 smartband. No other details in regards to what might make the smartband tick have been unveiled, but the upcoming model will likely be a more powerful variant of the Honor Band A2. The aforementioned smartband features a 0.96-inch OLED display, can track a variety of activities, and has an integrated heart rate sensor. It also carries an IP67 rating for dust and water resistance and offers enough battery life for roughly 18 days of standby time. The Huawei Honor Band 3 is expected to improve on some of those characteristics but it remains to be seen how. It could be that the Honor Band 3 will boast improved dust and water resistance, and perhaps a wider range of sensors or better build quality and exterior design, coupled with a possibly higher price tag.
Not unlike the Huawei Honor Band A2, the Honor Band 3 is expected to offer compatibility with Android smartphones. It’s worth noting that Huawei is also expected to officially introduce the Honor 9 smartphone on June 12, meaning that the Chinese company could offer the handset and the upcoming smart band in a bundle. The Huawei Honor 9 should feature a dual camera setup, the HiSilicon Kirin 960 system-on-chip, and a 5.15-inch 1920 x 1080 display. More details on the upcoming Huawei smartphone and smart band should emerge soon.
