Looks like the Alcatel Idol X+ won’t be the only new thing announced by TCL, which is the owner of the Alcatel brand. The Chinese company may also unveil smartwatch and smart bracelet at the same time.
Chinese website MTKSJ has a teaser image for the upcoming Idol X+ announcement. The image reads “1 + 1 > 2?”, while also showing a smartwatch and what could be a smart bracelet alongside the phone.
It makes sense for TCL to enter the nascent market at this stage and build its name before it [market] is being occupied by the big boys. Along the way, it will get an additional media exposure as everyone and their mama are talking about wearable technologies these days. It remains to be seen whether these guys and gals can pull this off, and actually make a product all of us want to buy…
