If reports and rumors are to be believed then September is going to be a very good month for gadget lovers. Not only do we have IFA 2014 in the first week, where countless manufacturers like Sony and Samsung are going to unveil new flagships, but in the second week we have Apple with its new iPhones and possibly its wearable as well. A latest rumor suggests that HTC may be looking to take a piece out of this pie as well by launching its own wearable device in the month of September. The rumor comes from a Twitter account that goes by @upleaks, some claim that it has taken up the baton that was passed on by infamous Twitter leaker @evleaks. According to the rumor HTC is working on a smartwatch that is destined for shelves next month.
HTC is hard at work on a new smartwatch that is rumored to hit store shelves in September. Twitter account @upleaks, a relatively new rumor page based in China, claimed Friday that HTC’s upcoming smartwatch will run Google’s Android Wear software and be called the HTC CWZ. The device is slated to hit store shelves in September, according to @upleaks, and will be available in North America, Japan, Brazil, Korea, and other markets around the world. CNET has contacted HTC for comment. We will update this story when we have more information. In February, HTC Chairwoman Cher Wang promised an HTC smartwatch by the holiday shopping season. She wouldn’t say, however, exactly when the device would be made available or what features it would offer. Rumors have been swirling for months that the Taiwanese device maker would announce its smartwatch soon. Just last month, an unannounced HTC smartwatch briefly appeared in an official video, though the company claimed it was not a actual product it planned to release. An earlier report suggested HTC’s smartwatch would be called the One Wear and launch in late August or early September.
