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.
