Huawei seems to have a new wearable in works and according to the prolific tipster Evan Blass, this could be the TalkBand B5. The press render of the same is also shared on Twitter. The image shows two models of the TalkBand B5 – one has a Gold frame and another comes in steel with leather and steel straps respectively.
The tipster didn’t reveal anything else in his tweet. The name of the wearable suggests Huawei has skipped the TalkBand B4 naming and has chosen B5 directly. Looking at the image, you would see the wearable can be doubled as Bluetooth headset just like its predecessors. The display can be detached from the strap and used as an earpiece for taking calls. The design also reveals the display could be OLED type as it’s supporting the color display.
Looking at the press render, the display of the TalkBand B5 seems to be showing many things in the notifications bar like the weather, message, night mode, and not just the battery. The pedometer installed seems to be showing only the number of steps taken. The TalkBand B5 with the steel band showing the call icon in green; well the colors are indeed adding life to the wearable. Overall, the new TalkBand has attained good changes over its predecessor and it’s looking more attractive now.
A TalkBand received FCC certification last year and it was thought to be the successor to the TalkBand B3. And, now fast forward to now, we are hearing about the TalkBand B5 which clearly defines that Huawei has skipped the B4 naming for its TalkBand.
