According to 9to5Google, Liu Zuohu confirmed in an interview that they are developing smartwatch products. He also added that OnePlus is working with Google to improve the interactivity of Wear OS with Android phones and Android TVs.
In addition to smartphones, OnePlus has currently launched the OnePlus Buds headsets, the OnePlus TV smart TVs and other products, providing a diversified product portfolio. Earlier this year, a device called ‘OnePlus Watch’ appeared on the Indonesian IMDA certification website with a model W301GB. There is every reason to think we are talking about the upcoming OnePlus smartwatch.
In addition, Max J. revealed that OnePlus has delayed the launch of OnePlus Watch. But he did not give us a new date. The reason behind the delay of the smartwatch is not clear. But according to the whistleblower, the reason behind the delay may be ‘some complex issues in production or software development.’
Google launched the smartwatch operating system Android Wear in 2014 and renamed it Wear OS in 2018. Wear OS is a branch version of Android, designed for wearable smart devices. Wear OS is more suitable for the operating habits of foreign users and supports functions such as digital assistants and sensors.
Does OnePlus Need A Smartwatch Product?
Well, almost all traditional smartphone makers have begun designing smartwatches as well. This simply means that the market has started changing long ago. So the companies should adapt to it. As for OnePlus, it’s more than vital. We mean this brand has been making only premium smartphones. But if previously, it was justified, now, it can’t survive with such a concept.
Anyway, unlike many other similar products, the OnePlus Smartwatch would have a higher price. Also, we know there is a relationship between OnePlus and Qualcomm. So it is quite likely that the OnePlus processor is powered by a Qualcomm chipset. With at least one gigabyte of RAM and 8 GB of storage. It is unknown if it would have a square design like the Apple Watch or circular like the Huawei models. But soon we will have new news about this new wearable.
