News Huami Amazfit X: the Smartwatch of the future?
At the launch event of Huami, the Huami Amazfit GTS and the Huami Amazfit X were presented. This is supposed to appear in 2020, but looks more like a Smartwatch from the year 2030.
Curved 2,08″ AMOLED Display
This is mainly due to the design. The Amazfit X adapts the look of the Nubia Alpha in a certain way, but looks much more filigree. The wearable manufacturer uses a curved 2,07″ AMOLED display, which is not square or round, but elongated. You bend the display at an angle of 92° over the imaginary arm without sacrificing the usual quality of the display panel. The pixel density of 326 ppi is remarkable.
In order to make this design possible, the glass was bent using temperatures of over 700°C. The glass was then bent to the desired shape. The glass is set in the metal case of the watch, so plastic is not used for the most part. However, the rest of the strap is made of silicone to ensure a pleasant wearing comfort. But not only the glass or the display had to be bent for this look. The battery also had to be adjusted. A curved lithium-ion battery is used for this purpose, which should guarantee a battery life of seven days.
Otherwise, the manufacturer has not yet disclosed any information. After all, the Amazfit X is more a concept than a finished Smartwatch. However, it should be clear that a heart rate monitor is also integrated and that the range of functions is similar to the Huami Amazfit GTS, for example. However, the user interface has to be adapted to this unusual design.
The Amazfit X certainly looks very interesting, but we are still a bit sceptical. What are the advantages of the design? The display of notifications in particular is therefore not optimal. With this design the watch also looks a bit more fragile. But so far it’s just a concept, even though the first prototypes were shown at the launch event. What do you expect from the Huami Amazfit X? Do you like the design?
