The next week, Huawei will go to Barcelona, Spain to present one, maybe two, new smartwatches. The company’s wearable strategy will be highlighted at the event, which will take place on September 14, 2023. We assume there will be more than one watch because the teaser picture describes this as a fashion forward event and displays a corner of two bezels, one with a timing bezel and one with a clean design. This may just be two watch faces on one watch. In May, Huawei released the Watch 4 and Watch 4 Pro, which went on sale in Europe a few weeks later. Those were premium watches running HarmonyOS 3.0. We are unsure of what to expect in terms of the new model because we haven’t heard any rumors as of now.
On September 26, Xiaomi will launch its 13T series, which was expected to become official last week. Lei Jun, the founder and CEO of Xiaomi, made this announcement via a post on X, where he also revealed the event will take place in Berlin, Germany, and be webcast live on mi.com. In addition, Jun said that the Xiaomi 13T series is “co-engineered with Leica,” therefore among other things, Leica filters should be present in the default camera app. However, Jun didn’t reveal how many smartphones the lineup will include. Rumors claim that 13T series will consist of at least two smartphones as Xiaomi 13T and Xiaomi 13T Pro.
