Chinese smartphone company Oppo is going to step into the smartwatch category this year. Besides all the Boycott China propaganda, we might see the launch of Oppo Watch (expected name) this month in India. Read here to know specifications, color options, and price of the upcoming Oppo Watch.
Expected Release Date:
The concept of Oppo Watch was first seen in March along with the Oppo Find X2 series unveil. While the phone is set to launch on July 27th officially, there is no such update on the watch. Many sources claim that the Oppo Watch might release with the Oppo Reno 4 Pro. Again, Reno 4 Pro is coming in July itself, July 17th being the expected date. So, we might expect the launch of Oppo Watch along with the phone in July.
So far, we know that there will be two models of the watch, and the only significant difference in those two will be the dial/screen size. One will be 41mm, and the other one will be 46mm in size. Another difference is the water resistance rating. The larger one is 5 ATM water-resistant, while the smaller one is 3 ATM resistant. Both models have a curved AMOLED display, which is a potential competitor to Apple Watches.
Specifications of the Oppo Watch:
Talking of specs, the Oppo Watch will come with Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2500 SoC. It is paired with 1GB RAM and 8GB Internal Storage. The watch does not have an option for expandable memory. Further, you will get a 430 mAh Li-ion battery, which might be more in the 46mm variant, and it will support wireless charging. It will run on ColorOS, and it will be interesting to see what the OS from Oppo phones can do in a watch.
Features and Sensors:
Along with the wireless charging coil, the Oppo Watch also has various sensors. These include Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Heart Rate monitor, and Barometer, to name a few. The watch can measure your Heart Rate patterns, and also your sleeping patterns. It supports eSIM, and to charge it; the watch makes use of VOOC technology.
Color Options and Price of the Oppo Watch:
You will get plenty of color options for the Oppo Watch. These include Silver, Dark Black, Gold, Elegant Black, Pink Gold, and Matte Silver. The expected price of the watch brings it up to the 15,000 to 22,000 INR category. The 41mm is expected to be around 16,000 Rupees, while the 46mm will have a further choice. You can choose from Aluminium or Steel build for the watch, and the price will change accordingly. Again, as per the reports, it can go as up as Rs. 22,000.
So, this sums up everything about what we know of the coming watch. It sure has good value for money, but the early reaction of people is mixed. The fact that Indians want to boycott any Chinese product is shaping a negative mentality against Oppo. So, launching the watch in such a time will be a challenging decision.
