The smartwatch in question was codenamed Meta Milan, and it had been under development for two years. It was planned to be released in 2023, however Meta announced earlier this week that the project will be scrapped.

An alleged prototype of the Meta smartwatch has appeared online, showcasing its appearance as well as some of its specifications. Take a look at the illustration below to see what I mean.

The dial on the prototype watch can be removed and charged separately through a charging connection. The watch contains two cameras (5MP + 12MP), which is unique for smartwatches, and the case has two buttons. The front camera is a 5MP sensor, with a 12MP sensor on the back. By removing the dial, you can take pictures at any time.

It is unknown if it will be produced in the future, although it was expected to cost $350 when it was first released.
