Earlier this year, we learned about a new OPPO Watch. It was looking almost identical to the Apple Watch. But some users found a few interesting features. Now, there is every reason to think those features may come true.
As LetsGoDigital claims, OPPO has registered a new patent for a round dial watch. As the patent photos show, the smartwatch will use a round dial instead of a square dial. It is also covered with a 3D curved glass on the top and bottom. Agree, this is quite unordinary in the wearable market.
But this doesn’t mean the OPPO Watch will use a round dial design for sure. It’s a patent and one of the options that may appear on the final product. However, if the company decides to use it, then it will definitely be able to bring something unique.
In fact, the first OPPO Watch is already out. It comes in two different sizes of 41mm and 46mm. The former is available in a WiFi-only variant while the latter also comes in LTE connectivity with eSIM support. The smaller version has three colors of Black, Pink Gold, and Silver Mist. And the 46mm comes in two color options of Black and Glossy Gold.
The 41mm version of the OPPO Watch features a 1.91-inch AMOLED panel with 402 x 476 pixels resolution. The 46mm has a 1.6-inch AMOLED but with 320 x 360 pixels resolution. The global version of OPPO Watch runs on two chipsets – Snapdragon 3100 Wear and Ambiq Micro Apollo 3. The former is used to run Wear OS while the latter is the company’s own offering that will be used for low-power mode.
The OPPO Watch costs EUR 249 in Europe.
