Louis Vuitton Tambour Horizon Light Up announced with a Snapdragon Wear 4100 SoC but no Wear OS
Louis Vuitton has revealed a smartwatch powered by the Snapdragon Wear 4100 platform, currently still the most powerful smartwatch platform for Wear OS. The Tambour Horizon Light Up builds on the Tambour Horizon that the company announced in 2019. For reference, the Tambour Horizon launched with the Wear 3100, 1 GB of RAM and Wear OS 2.
The Tambour Horizon Light Up retains its predecessor's 1 GB of RAM and has 8 GB of storage. However, Louis Vuitton has abandoned Wear OS, following in Motorola's footsteps. Instead, the Tambour Horizon Light Up relies on a proprietary OS compatible with Android, HarmonyOS and iOS.
Additionally, the smartwatch has a 1.2-inch AMOLED display that resolves at 390 x 390 pixels. Louis Vuitton has integrated an always-on-display (AoD) this time around, along with 24 RGB LEDs that surround the device's display. As the photos below show, these LEDs shine through various Louis Vuitton symbols.
Louis Vuitton will begin selling the Tambour Horizon Light Up on January 7, 2022. The company is yet to reveal how much the smartwatch costs, but it could exceed €3,000 if its predecessor is anything to go by.
