OnePlus CEO confirms the company is working on exciting new smartwatches

OnePlus CEO confirms the company has restarted working on a OnePlus smartwatch

A few months back, OnePlus hinted that it is working on a smartwatch prototype when OnePlus was a relatively unknown entity in the market. As per the recent reports, the CEO of OnePlus has clarified the work is still going on behind the scenes. Moreover, it is also working towards introducing the Wear OS platform with Google.

OnePlus CEO comments on the possibility of an upcoming smartwatch

OnePlus spoke to 9to5Google with Liu Zuohu confirming that it is working on certain smartwatch products. However, there is no confirmation if the watch will run on Wear OS, though it is likely the case. Lau only confirmed that OnePlus is in the works for a smartwatch and working on Wear OS with Google, but he didn’t clarify if the two are related.

Additionally, OnePlus has recently launched smart TVs, Buds headsets, and other smart products as it is actively looking to diversify its product portfolio.

Earlier in 2020, news about “OnePlus Watch” popped up on the Indonesian IMDA certification site with the model number W301GB. That device could be related to the upcoming OnePlus smartwatch.

In the interview, Liu Zuohu also said that OnePlus began working on the Apple smartwatch back in 2015. However, it had to abandon the plans and shift its focus to flagship smartphones. He further added that the Chinese company is working with Google to improve its Wear OS for the upcoming products. OnePlus collaborating with Google will improve the connectivity between the OS ecosystem, Android smartphones, and Android TV to offer better device interoperability. OnePlus

This indicates that Chinese manufactures are looking to make the Android ecosystem a bit more personal for users through multiple devices. OnePlus is looking to emulate Apple, which is known for providing a seamless connectivity experience between different devices through proprietary OS or processors.

Oppo, the parent company of OnePlus introduced the “Oppo Watch” with the Wear OS earlier this year. The Oppo Watch makes use of the Wear OS platform but infuses a bit of ColorOS elements into the mix to offer an all-around better experience. It is likely that OnePlus may do the same since it borrows a fair bit from Oppo’s products. The upcoming Watch could also run on the Wear OS platform while including some Oxygen OS elements.
