ZTE Axon smartwatch spied running Tencent OS


ZTE have launched a round Axon smartwatch with AMOLED display and running Tencent OS in China

Axon is ZTE’s new premium brand that until today only specialised in smartphones. Now the brand also boasts a round screen wearable in the form of a smartwatch.

The ZTE Axon watch is a 42mm device with 400 x 400 AMOLED display and 11.5mm thick metal body. The watch has a classic look, comes with a leather strap and there is even a button on the side similar to the winder on a traditional time piece.


TOS (Tencent OS) runs on a Qualcomm APQ8026 processor, there is 512mb RAM and 4GB of storage available too where you can keep music and other offline files. A heart rate monitor keeps track of the wearers pulse while IP67 certification means you can swim, and play on the beach without much concern.

With TOS on board expect the watch to seamlessly work with QQ, WeChat etc, but don’t expect it to launch outside of China like this anytime soon. Pricing for the Axon watch hasn’t been announced but source believe 1000 Yuan or less is what ZTE are hoping for.
