Huawei is working on a new 2-in-1 wearable device — Huawei Talkband B5, which is the successor of the Huawei Talkband B3 that was launched about two years ago. Now, the press render of the device has leaked online through Evan Blass, showing us what the device will look like.
From the leaked image, it seems that this is a 2-in-1 device that can be used as a fitness tracker as well as a single-ear Bluetooth headset. When attached to the wristband, it can be used as a fitness tracker, but when detached, it becomes a single-ear Bluetooth headset which can be used to take calls.
The design language of the upcoming wearable device from China-based Huawei is similar to its predecessor, with some minor changes. It appears that the device will be offered in two color options — Gold and Silver with the option to have a leather strap or a metal band. The earpiece part of the device will come in black color, regardless of the color variant.
While we now know that the device will look like, there is no information available about the device’s specifications. From the leaked image, it’s pretty clear that the Talkband B5 will come with an elongated touchscreen, which is probably an OLED display. It supports Bluetooth connectivity and also shows various notifications.
The Talkband B3 had 128KB RAM, 16MB of external storage and 512KB internal storage. It packs 91mAh battery that the company claimed could deliver a maximum of 6 hours of talk time. Just like the Talkband B3, the Talkband B5 is also expected to be compatible with both Android as well as the iOS operating system.
At this time, it is not known when the company is planning to officially launch the Huawei Talkband B5 but we are expecting the device to launch soon, within a month or two.
