Huawei will disclose detailed specifications of the device next week at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015. What we do know is that the device sports LTE-M chip making cellular Internet of Things (IoT) a reality. Note that, Huawei is using the technology by a London-based IoT firm Neul that it had acquired in September 2014.

At the launch event, Huawei stated, “4.5G supports up to 100K per cell connections via LTE-M, 100 times that of 4G. LTE-M also provides better coverage. Receivers require just 1/100th of the signal of existing 2G system, 20dB gain, using low-power terminals.

The Huawei 4.5G Smartband will be capable of tracking fitness levels, heart-rate and user will be able to pair it with other IoT devices. We expect the device to come with an OLED screen, NFC, Bluetooth and resistance against dust as well as water, just like the previous Smartband that Huawei had launched last year at MWC.
