The most-anticipated MWC 2017 is around the corner and rumours, expectations, and confirmations have already begun flowing in. One such update is coming straight from the wearables circle. According to VentureBeat, ZTE Quartz (ZW10) smartwatch will likely mark its entry at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Even though ZTE is yet to come out with any confirmation regarding this, a press image of the alleged ZTE Quartz (ZW10) has made its way online. The company, however, has a press conference scheduled ahead of the MWC.
To recall, ZTE Quartz smartwatch recently got Bluetooth certified under the model name ZW10. The features that have been confirmed so far fall under the connectivity department, namely Wi-Fi and UMTS 3G cellular. However, it is yet to be confirmed whether it runs the latest Android Wear 2.0 OS or not. That aside, the ZTE Quartz (ZW10) is allowed to pair with iOS 8.2 or Android 4.3 and up. Some of the unclarities regarding the device are expected to settle down close to the launch date.
Notably, ZTE may not be the only company to venture aggressively into wearables segment, especially since MWC 2017 is on the verge. Several other technology firms are also expected to come up with new Android Wear 2.0-based smartwatches pretty soon. That said, a couple of new smartwatches dubbed LG Watch Sport and Watch Style arrived yesterday, which runs the latest Android Wear 2.0 operating system. ZTE previously had Venus 1 and Venus 2 activity trackers to showcase at last year’s Mobile World Congress.
