Huami is an OEM that makes attractive smartwatches and (as of CES 2020) smart fitness hardware. It releases the latter through the brand Amazfit. The latest addition to this name is the X, a heretofore state-of-the-art concept device that may now be ready to give the Nubia Alpha a run for its money.
Amazfit has announced that it is to launch this curved-display wearable soon. However, it will do so through Indiegogo (IGG) rather than conventional sales channels. Nevertheless, with its ground-breaking 2.07-inch display – which, as the brand has just revealed, will also be AMOLED – it may attract the attention the company is patently looking to gauge through this alternative retail model.
The Amazfit X will hit Indiegogo in early April and if successful there, might turn into a real product. We last saw the product back in January 2020 when it was teased on the site. Here is everything you need to know about the concept watch.
The Amazfit X features a 2.07-inch curved AMOLED display along with some serious credentials. It will have a density of 326 PPI and a peak brightness of 430 nits. There is a fully metal case with likely a premium finish. There are no physical buttons on the entire unit. Rather, navigation is taken care of using a touch-sensitive panel on the right edge of the Amazfit X.
Talking about the battery, the Amazfit X was said to feature a 220mAh unit in a previous leak. That is kind of small, considering most recent fitness trackers feature over 400mAh battery packs. But then again, maybe the leak wasn’t entirely accurate. There are also a bunch of engineering feats in the wearable. The watch has a curved screen, sugge3sting a flexible AMOLED display and a curved glass. Apparently, there is even a three-piece motherboard in there, according to Wareable.
There is no word on whether the Amazfit X features elements like GPS and ECG. These will be key factors in determining if the wearable will be a hit or miss in most markets. That being said, the availability of the Huami Amazfit X is still up in the air. Like many products on Indiegogo, the Amazfit X may never see the light of day. However, since this is an addition from Amazfit, people will likely be more eager to put their money on the concept watch.
