OnePlus announced that it would soon launch the most awaited OnePlus Smartwatch. The CEO of the company, Pete Lau, mentioned in a tweet last year that the watch would arrive ‘early in the next year’. Although the exact release date is unknown, according to some sources, the company might launch the watch alongside OnePlus 9 in Q1 of 2021.
OnePlus is working with Google to develop the operating system for the smartwatch
The smartwatch may mostly run on Wear OS, a Google-developed operating system for wearable gadget. Moreover, the company is trying to improve the connectivity between the Wear OS ecosystem, Android Smartphones, and TVs to enhance the operation across the ecosystems. The Smartwatch will not be exclusive to the OnePlus smartphones, but rather be available for all Android smartphones.
With Apple Watch Series 3 and Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 already in the market, OnePlus smartwatches are bound to face a tough competition with these tech giants. The watch’s price details are not available to the public yet, but the price will be in the same range as that of its rival smartwatches. Apart from the smartwatch, the company also announced the arrival of OnePlus Band in 2021.
