We’re in store for a major overhaul of Wear OS later this year, as Google has partnered with Samsung to develop a new wearable OS. And while that’s pretty exciting, there’s still not too much known about what that will bring, let alone the hardware that will be taking advantage of it. That isn’t stopping Oppo from working on a new smartwatch that will not only be running Wear OS, but will also be powered by the Snapdragon Wear 4100.
According to XDA Developers, tipster mlgmxyysd shared some information regarding the Oppo Watch 2, which will seemingly include seven different options to choose from. When it arrives, the Oppo Watch 2 will come in either two sizes; 46mm or 42mm, along with being available in a series of different colors, with only “Mine Shaft” being available on both sizes.
After digging into firmware files, this tipster also found that the build property file has the “msm8937_32go” listed as the processor. This is the same as what’s listed in the firmware for the TicWatch Pro 3 which is currently the only Wear OS smartwatch to be powered by the “latest” Snapdragon Wear 4100 chipset.
Other information shared reveals that there is an international version that is running Wear OS, but a different software would arrive with the Watch 2 in China. We also know that there will be 16GB of storage onboard, which is an improvement over the current Oppo Watch. On the software side, we’ll have some different watch faces, along with the ability for the Oppo Watch 2 to detect your stress levels thanks to a new “OPPO Relax” application.
Despite announcing a trio of new smartphones yesterday, Oppo did not reveal any information about a potential Watch 2 release. Until then, we’ll just have to keep our fingers crossed for another Wear OS smartwatch with the Wear 4100 to finally hit the market.
