HTC continues to hang in there in the smartphone market and has been making some noise in the virtual reality segment. However, one place where it has been absent is in the market for smartwatches. A new leak from Evan Blass suggests the company’s entry into that particular part of the wearables market could come in April.


Last fall word surfaced that HTC did have a smartwatch product in the works going by the codename Halfbeak. That was followed by word that the device would be revealed by HTC in February. Blass is the same source for the information indicating the HTC smartwatch would be coming out in February. It is possible HTC could reveal the watch at MWC 2016 with availability coming later.
