Facebook could develop a smartwatch with a detachable display


Facebook was mostly a software and services company, but it seems they are not quite finished with their hardware ambitions because, according to a report by The Verge, Facebook is apparently working on a smartwatch that could hit the market next summer and it could have an interesting design.

This is because the Facebook smartwatch could actually come with a detachable display with two built-in cameras, according to the report, a sort of impromptu setup of video calling. After all, the company launched its portal video conferencing system, so this doesn’t seem like a fantasy.

As for the cameras, the one on the front is intended to be used primarily for video calls, while the one on the back can hold 1080p footage. Facebook is also said to be in talks with other companies to develop accessories for the removed watch, such as a way to attach it to a backpack.

Facebook has tried using hardware in the past when they partnered with HTC on a Facebook phone, but that way has failed. The company has since expanded to other products such as VR headsets and its portal system. We’re not sure how popular a Facebook smartwatch would be, so we’ll have to wait and see.
