OnePlus will finally be making and releasing a smartwatch in the year 2021. CEO Pete Lau has made an announcement on Twitter, marking the first entry into wearable devices for the huge smartphone company.
There are not many details yet on the upcoming device as of now, including what smartwatch OS it will run, a price, or even a firm release date. Lau only notes that it’ll be “released early next year.”
The idea of an OnePlus smartwatch is not a new one; the company had reportedly designed earlier a Wear OS then which was called Android Wear smartwatch a few years ago.
OnePlus eventually and ultimately nixed that product, though they had completed the design, but they still decided to scrap it, Lau revealed in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. They have to be focused.
Many of you said you wanted a watch, and as you might have heard over the weekend—we're making one, to be released early next year. Wishes do come true.🎁 https://t.co/H1Fqv9srXj
