Huawei has filed a trademark for “Mate Watch” earlier this month in China and it’s rather puzzling. The company already has a smartwatch lineup called Watch GT with the latest release being GT 2e a few weeks ago. So what does the new trademark mean?
Well, at first we thought it would be a separate high-end family called Mate, so it can go hand in hand with the Mate flagship smartphone series. But there’s also the possibility of re-branding. Perhaps the new Mate Watch will mark the birth of a new smartwatch line leaving the more budget-oriented segment to Honor and its MagicWatch-series.
Either way, the trademark timing seems convenient enough for the watch to make it to the Mate 30 release later this year. We are sure that by then more info will turn out to paint a better picture.
