ZTE’s first Android Wear watch, called the Quartz, has been creeping closer to launch since it was first leaked in early February. Now the watch and its cradle has leaked, but we still don’t know when it’s coming.

We last saw the Quartz when it hit the FCC, where found that the watch has no NFC or heart rate monitor, but does include 2G/3G radios in addition to Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for wireless connectivity. Android Police have received leaked photos of the watch and here it is:

As we saw when the watch went through the FCC, the watch will charge through pogo pins on the rear, which is now backed up by a look at the charging cradle.

The watch has none of the fancy new Android 2.0 hardware like the funky digital crown from the LG Watch Sport, or NFC, but will run Android Wear 2.0.

There’s no pricing, release date or even expanded specs for the ZTE Watch Quartz but we should be seeing it soon judging by the finished look of these pictures.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

eh no NFC is a deal breaker for me. Don’t really care about 2G/3G as odds are they won’t work here anyway. But having the ability to use android pay on the watch is a far superior prospect.


that is one ugly watch.
