Huawei has unveiled the Huawei Watch Fit Elegant smartwatch, which is based on the Huawei Watch Fit introduced last summer. Users get new colors and materials.
The case of the Huawei Watch Fit Elegant is made of polished stainless steel, and customers will also receive a soft fluoroelastomer strap. The watch will be available in two colors: Frosty White (with gold accents) and Midnight Black (with a silver buckle and frame).
The strap material is different from the regular silicone included in the basic Huawei Watch Fit package. It is more resistant to heat, moisture, oil and stretching. Users get a more durable strap that is also less likely to cause any allergic reactions.
In terms of specifications, the Huawei Watch Fit Elegant features a rectangular 1.64-inch AMOLED display with a 280 x 456 pixel resolution and a single button on the side. The watch is powered by Huawei’s own Lite operating system, is equipped with a Kirin A1 SoC and offers 12 days of battery life.
Huawei Watch Fit Elegant smartwatches are equipped with a GPS module, a 24-hour heart rate monitoring sensor, sensors for determining the level of oxygen in the blood (SpO2). The watch supports 96 training modes, menstrual cycle tracking, and Huawei TruSleep 2.0 for sleep tracking.
The Huawei Watch Fit Elegant will go on sale in the UK on March 26th for £ 110 (about $150).

The Huawei P50 will arrive on April 17th but in a few units
As it became known, the presentation of the new Huawei P50 line of flagship smartphones will take place in the second half of next month, or rather, on April 17, 2021.
Also, sources from the supply chain have confirmed that the supply of Huawei P50 will be limited. We do not know the exact reason, but it is understandable as well. Huawei has very few flagship HiSilicon Kirin 9000 SoCs, and the company has not received new SoCs since last year.
At the moment, the Huawei P50 series is already ready for mass production; it will include the Huawei P50, P50 Pro and P50 Pro + models. The basic version will have the Kirin 9000E mobile platform; and the bigger versions will get the Kirin 9000. In addition, the small version will have a 6.1-inch display; while the Huawei P50 Pro and Huawei P50 Pro + will receive a 6.6-inch and 6.8 -inch panel, respectively. Of course, the top cameras should be the main advantages of the P50 Pro and P50 Pro + smartphones.
The global version of the P50 should arrive with EMUI 11.1; while the Chinese version will receive HarmonyOS. The smartphone will arrive without Google services; instead of them, users will get Huawei Mobile Services and the AppGallery store.
