Xiaomi backed Huami recently launched the Amazfit Verge Lite, the cheap version of its popular sporty smartwatch Amazfit Verge. Now Huami has teased the launch of a new smartwatch on June 11th in China. The Chinese giant didn’t revealed the name of the products but reports suggest that it could be the next generation Amazfit Verge called the Amazfit Verge 2. Qualcomm has also posted a teaser on its Chinese social media revealing its latest wearable chipset featuring e-SIM support to make calls and more will feature in the watch. The teaser posted by both Qualcomm and Huami Technology read “I LOVE YOU THREE THOUSAND”, which hints that the smartwatch could be powered by Wear 3100 chipset.
The Vice President of Huami, Wei Fandi has also released the box packaging of an unannounced product. The text on the box reads, “for internal testing of Unicom”, which confirms the Verge 2 moniker. The Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset is one of the most powerful wearable processor and features on high-end watches like Fossil Sport. The teaser also hints that the watch will come with e-SIM support like Apple Watch 4 and Samsung Galaxy Watch. It allows you to use the watch away from your smartphone as you can insert a separate SIM card inside. It will be a major upgrade for a running device and the watch is likely to have a hike in price compared to $160 Amazfit Verge.
