Huawei Might Announce A Matebranded Smartwatch Trademark Document Suggests

Huawei has filed a trademark for "Mate Watch" earlier this month in China and it's rather puzzling. The company already has a smartwatch lineup called Watch GT with the latest release being GT 2e a few weeks ago. So what does the new trademark mean?

Perhaps the new Mate Watch will mark the birth of a new smartwatch line leaving the more budget-oriented segment to Honor and its...
