Mobvoi has begun teasing the arrival of the TicWatch Pro 5 in a new campaign that shows off the upcoming smartwatch in full, with a potential announcement date also potentially hinted.

As part of the company's new 'HighfivePro5' campaign on Instagram and Twitter, shown below, full images of the smartwatch are being superimposed onto different worldwide locations.

Each shows off something different about the design of the Wear OS watch, though this only serves to confirm what we already knew from a recent Pro 5 Amazon listing leak, among others.

The most notable difference between the Pro 5 and the current-gen models - the TicWatch Pro 3 and TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra - is the new power button and top button layout. 

On the existing models, this is positioned at 2 o'clock and 5 o'clock, though the Pro 5 locates a bold new crown at 3 o'clock and moves the side button just above.

Interestingly, Mobvoi is also giving away a free TicWatch Pro 5 as part of the promotion, with the closing date for people to get involved being 23 May. 

This could suggest the announcement date will be in line with the end of the 'HighfivePro5' contest, or, of course, it could come before or later. Given what we know from leaks, an official launch could happen any day now.

We should have all the details soon enough - including, hopefully, when the Pro 5 will update to the just-announced Wear OS 4 - so stay tuned for official word from Mobvoi.
