Wear OS, Google’s Android-based operating system for smartwatches, finally got the love of Google this year, in partnership with Samsung, Google is creating a new wearable platform with new health features and a brand new UI, Samsung and Fitbit. Owned by Google, is working on new hardware with the release of an updated operating system. But it’s not the only one making a new Wear OS smartwatch, Chinese electronics brand OPPO is also ready to launch the OPPO Watch 2, according to the latest rumors.
Last year, OPPO launched the OPPO Watch, the brand’s first entry into the smartwatch market. Of course, the smartwatch is similar to the Apple Watch with a square design. But inside, of course, it̵7;s far from a clone.Outside of China, the OPPO Watch runs Wear OS and is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 3100 SoC.
By the time the watch made its international debut, its SoC was already a success, with the better Snapdragon Wear 4100 so far there was only one Wear OS smartwatch with the latest and greatest wearable processor. Qualcomm’s biggest is Mobvoi’s TicWatch Pro 3.It is rumored that a new Motorola smartwatch brand will launch this year with an upgraded Qualcomm wearable SoC, but the TicWatch Pro 3. It is at the top of the list of Wear OS watches in terms of performance and battery life without compromising on features. This may change with the upcoming OPPO Watch 2 according to an analysis of the firmware files compiled by tipster mlgmxyysd.
Tipster shared information online about the upcoming OPPO Watch 2, as evidenced by the fact they shared it could be up to 7 models:
|Model number||size||Color (derived from hexadecimal value)|
|OW20W3||46 mm||Dusty gray (# FF9B9B9B)|
|OW20W1||46 mm||Mine shaft (# FF1F1F1F)|
|OW20W1||46 mm||Steel Blue (# FF4285A1)|
|OW20W2||42mm||Mine shaft (# FF1F1F1F)|
|OW20W2||42mm||Golden sand (# FFE9BA9B)|
|OW20W2||42mm||Water leaf (# FFAAE6E9)|
|OW20W2||42mm||Matisse (# FF2255A3)|
Tipster believes the wearable device will come with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 4100 wearable platform, due to the fact that the SoC listing feature file is “msm8937_32go,” which they say is the same value. In TicWatch Pro 3 firmware (In my wn oTicWatch Pro 3 GPS, the value of “ro.board.platform” is set to “msm8937” while the Watch 2 build properties file says “msm8937_32go. “So it looks plausible.) The recommendations say the operating system follows the above of Android 8.1 Oreo and won’t run Wear OS in China, but if it launches overseas it tends to use Wear OS at the time. Where the original model had 8GB of internal storage, a line in the file, the build feature showed that the new model would have 16GB of storage.Lastly, Tipster shared some details about the software, including the new watch face, the addition of detection. Stress and the new OPPO Relax app, Tipster has loaded a new app into the first OPPO Watch to show off what these features look like. But keep in mind that what they found is only relevant to the Chinese software release.
As suggested, OPPO Watch 2 retains the square form of its predecessor But this information is based on the placeholder file contained in the smartwatch’s firmware. However, there is some evidence to suggest that the next generation of wearables will have a square design. Another tipster shared a picture of what it claims to be a poster mocking the OPPO Enco Free2 and OPPO Reno 6 series (both of which were previously launched in China), as well as the OPPO Watch 2.
At the Reno 6 series launch event, OPPO shared a teaser image hinting that the upcoming smartwatch will have a square design. At the event, they also said the new wearable device will feature a chip called Apollo4s developed in conjunction with Ambiq Tipster.mlgmxyysd claims that the chipset will be used in conjunction with the Snapdragon Wear 4100 to make the wearable device run on powered RTOS. Low, coupled with the main operating system If true, this may improve battery life when the clock is not in use or when it performs better for the coprocessor. They also claim that the watch will support LTE connectivity through built-in eSIM support.
However, it has not been confirmed whether the wearable device teasing at this event will be the OPPO Watch 2, the Chinese special edition OPPO Watch 2, or all other smartwatches.After all, the Chinese version of the OPPO Watch has a processor. And the software version is different from the global version, and there are also rumors that OPPO is working on a smart watch called OPPO Watch Free.The evidence that mlgmxyysd shared is convincing enough that OPPO is working on the OPPO Watch 2, but We cannot rule out the possibility that these terms are wrong or that the company is currently working on more than one smartwatch. As we learn more about OPPO Wear Plans, we will share an update.
