OnePlus might soon be entering the wearable market. Previous leaks have suggested that the company has been developing its own wearable for quite a while now. Tentatively called the OnePlus Watch, the latest leak hints at the shape of the dial. According to tipster, @MaxJmb, OnePlus will opt for a circular display rather than squarish-shape found on some wearales like the Apple Watch.
Many dont seem to understand it so I clarify it. The Watch is circular.— Max J. (@MaxJmb) September 10, 2020
Late last month, multiple reports popped up that seemingly confirmed the existence of the OnePlus Watch. First, a device called the ‘OnePlus Watch appeared on the website of Indonesia’s regulatory body. The device reportedly had the model name W301GB. A few days later, a former OnePlus employee also said that the company has been considering the release of a smartwatch for quite a while now.
While details of the device are not yet known. It would be a safe bet to assume that the OnePlus Watch will offer hardware that is similar to the recently launched Oppo Watch. As such, the upcoming device may also run on Google’s WearOS platform and feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear chipset.
Besides OnePlus, Vivo is also tipped to launch a wearable simply called the Vivo Watch. The wearable is expected to sport a circular dial with an AMOLED panel. It is also tipped to offer a stainless steel body and a leather strap. The device is expected to offer water resistance of up to 5ATM and sport sensors to track heart rate, blood oxygen content and more. It is also tipped to feature NFC for contactless payments. Instead of WearOS, the Vivo Watch is expected to run a forked version of the company’s FunTouchOS, which itself is based on Android. The report adds that the Vivo Watch is tipped to offer a battery life of 18 days and should be priced at around 1000CNY, which is about Rs 10,700.
