Oppo has released an animated trailer for a Wear OS device that will reportedly launch worldwide on July 31, 2020. It is most likely for its first-gen smartwatch, which has been released in China but runs a variant of ColorOS in that region. This device is Apple-esque in its design and has a Qualcomm processor for wearables.

OPPO has reportedly announced a new launch set for July 31, 2020. Based on the content of its teaser, posted earlier by Engadget, it is expected to debut the global edition of the OEM's first smartwatch. According to this GIF, it is to run Wear OS rather than its own version of Android as Chinese-market units of this device do. 

That detail is in line with previous leaks about the minimally-named OPPO Watch. Its design is patently inspired by Apple's wearable of a very similar name, although the former will obviously have a very different interface once it is on sale globally.

Confusingly, it is already on sale on Amazon Germany, which claims it is also the Wear OS version of the OPPO Watch. Then again, it will not be shipped until August 6, 2020, and is only available in the device's 41 millimeter (mm) black SKU with a silicon band.

The Qualcomm Wear 2500/1GB RAM/430mAh battery-powered accessory is also known to have 46mm SKUs, and also had more color options on its original release. Therefore, this complete panel of variation might become available on its formal international launch.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
