What do you do when you want to build some hype for your upcoming product? Sure, you can just rely on @evleaks and hope for the best. But just to be sure, you can stealthily insert said product in an otherwise run-off-the-mill promotional video and then… just wait.

HTC looks to have applied this recipe with the video above, which, amidst a deluge of design-y buzzwords, contains a couple of glimpses of what could be HTC’s first Android Wear smartwatch.

As discovered by HTC Source, at 0:35 seconds in the video, you can see a squarish smartwatch sporting a Sense-style watch face and sitting tightly in a charging cradle. And, at 0:45, a worker appears to be fiddling onscreen with the design of the watch’s metallic body.

There’s not much to talk about here, but the leak (intentional or not) does seem to corroborate @evleaks’ render from last week.

According to rumors, we may find out everything there’s to know about HTC’s Android Wear smartwatch sometime next month. Like what you see so far?

    Love HTC design and durability. Would like to see this watch hit the masses in the USA. At the right price, and a major marketing push, this could compete with the Samsung and Motorola options. I realize LG also has released a watch, I just don’t see it making as big a splash as Samsung in America. HTC should push this watch at a sub $200.00 price tag. As the owner of an HTC One, I really want to see HTC make waves and bring us an unbeatable deal.

      It’s been a while since I’ve seen anyone associate HTC with durability, it’s pleasing to see I suppose, The new One’s are definitely changing their image, either that or you are one of the select few who never new HTC existed before the M7 and jumped on the aluminium bandwagon, but doubt that

    I think it’s also on 0:43 in the guys computer screen and why do they use SHITTY MACBOOKS?!?!

    • Technician

      Because thay aren’t shitty, and if you deal with graphical design, or modeling and video editing you know that mac os offers a better experience than a windows machine

        Yep, that’s true.

        Agreed. While I’m not a fan of Apple, their machines perform much better in those areas than Windows based workstations I’ve seen. We mainly use Linux and RDP into a Windows Virtual Machines for some tasks, but the department that runs all the graphics/art use Mac Pro workstations and a few Macbook Pro laptops.

    If it wasn’t for the huge logo at the end i would have believed that this was an Apple commercial.

      What about all the HTC phones in focus?

      • Luka Mlinar

        What about the sea of Apple logos.

        • Daniel Würtz Jørgensen

          So you think HTC should have brought all their none existing computers to their offices to make this video.
          I dont think apple with all ther existing iphones would go all HTC on the phones.

            I think there’s more to this video than people think. Samsung might not be the only one fighting with Google.
