Lau doesn’t point out the specs or when the system shall be launched, but when we needed to enterprise a guess, it would debut alongside the OnePlus 9 which can also be pegged for an early 2021 launch. We’re unsure if the corporate’s smartwatch will use Google’s Put on OS platform or in the event that they could possibly be planning to make use of their very own software program, so it is going to be fascinating to see how this performs out.
Additionally, we’re unsure how a lot the watch might value, however hopefully OnePlus will stick with their budget-ish roots and never make it too costly.
