Huawei confirms it is working on new product lines, possibly wearables

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei has confirmed that it is working on new product lines ahead of potential unveilings at MWC 2014.

Although the company has failed to detail exactly what categories the new product lines will fall into, the ZTE and HTC rival has suggested that it will build on its 2013 array of smartphones, phablets and tablets with all new product sectors in the coming months.

Having officially unveiled the second-generation Huawei Ascend Mate 2 at CES 2014 Jerry Huang, the company’s Director of Marketing told TrustedReviews: “Not only are we continuing with our existing product lines, we are also creating something new.”

Teasing vague details of the upcoming products, Huang added: “We are starting with the latest trends and also with some new hot topics and we will try our best to create some great user experiences.”

While the company has failed to declare exactly when its new product lines will drop, the Chinese firm made reference to next month’s MWC 2014 conference in adding: “We will show you later, we will surprise you later.”

Speaking with TrustedReviews last year, Huawei confirmed that it was working on its first wearable gadgets, while company executives have also previously made reference to a Huawei branded Google Glass rival.

“Wearable technologies is something that everybody is going to be doing, without question, everybody,” Nick Woodley, Head of ID Design at Huawei’s London design offices told TrustedReviews before confirming Huawei’s own efforts in the industry.

Elsewhere at MWC 2013, Huawei’s Product Manager Richard Yu stated: “I wish we could show you what we are working on for over the next five to ten years, including glasses.”

TrustedReviews will be on hand at MWC 2013 this February to bring you all the latest announcements, including Huawei’s new product lines.
