Oppo, the selfie camera phone manufacturer has announced in a release for its first smartwatch launch. The smartwatch was launched in Mainland China earlier this year with a customized version of Android OS, but the international shipped model will be equipped with Google’s Wear OS on board.
Oppo illustrates the Oppo Watch as the world’s leading smartwatch with a dual-curved display, signifying the OLED panel curves on two corners like many of the company’s phones. It’s available in both 46mm and 41mm sizes with LTE connectivity in the premium model. The 430mAh battery gets fully charged in 75 minutes and a half-full in 15.
A user told Edge that he’s tested the Chinese version of the Oppo Watch, he found the hardware and software to be pretty good, but it is unlikely to avoid the similarities with the Apple Watch.
Overall I think this watch looks fine in a emptiness, but there’s no getting around it: people are either moving to think you’re wearing an Apple Watch or recognize you’re wearing something that just resembles an Apple Watch. It’s up to you whether that’s what you want out of your wristwear.
Oppo says the watch will roll out from today in picked markets but hasn’t given broad specifications on exactly where and when that’ll be. We do have pricing erudition for a couple of key regions, though. In the United Kingdom, the 46mm Oppo Watch will somewhat cost £369 ($484) and the 41mm can be titled with a price tag of £229 ($300), while in Asia it’ll be Rs. 19,990 INR ($267) for the 46mm and Rs. 14,990 ($200) for the other 41mm version.
