Out of the two variants, the first one throws light on a ‘Sports’ band for the watch possibly made up of silicone. It appears to compete with the Apple Watch that comes with a silicone strap as one of the many options. There is the presence of a circular dial and two buttons on the right side.
The other variant hints at a simpler yet classy watch band, which is most likely to be leather in nature. It also comes with a clamp at the end of the strap, which will ensure a better grip. This makes up for a different looking smartwatch capable of intriguing people. This one also has a circular dial and two buttons on the right side.
While we lack concrete information on this, one thing has been seemingly confirmed; the OnePlus Watch will get a round dial, much like the Oppo Watch.
Previous leaks at a glance
We don’t have a lot of information on the OnePlus Watch for it still remains behind the veil. But there are some leaks. It is expected to be a reworked version of the Oppo Watch and for starters, will get the basic smartwatch features such as a heart rate sensor, activity tracker, sleep tracker, and more.
The smartwatch is likely to run Wear OS with a flavour of OxygenOS to make the experience. For this, OnePlus is said to be working with Google. It is likely to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 4100 chip and feature a curved display. While pricing is not known, the OnePlus Watch could fall under Rs 20,000, much like the Oppo smartwatch.
It is also expected to make its entry to the Indian shores as it has recently received BIS certification. However, it might launch globally first, possibly alongside the OnePlus 9 series in March or April.
As a reminder, the aforementioned is a patent and patents don’t usually see the light of the day. So, we need official confirmation on the same to get a better idea.
We will keep you posted. Therefore, stay tuned.
