Oppo VP Brian Shen has taken to Chinese social media platform Weibo to share the first picture of the firm’s upcoming smartwatch. Lo and behold! We have one other Apple Watch clone on our palms.
As you may see in the picture (above) of the Oppo smartwatch teased by Shen, it bears a very robust resemblance to Apple’s counterpart. Thankfully, there’s one striking distinction in the sort of navigational buttons it sports activities.
The Oppo watch has two buttons on the aspect as a substitute of a crown and a button that the Apple Watch homes. We don’t get a take a look at the left aspect of the watch, so it’s attainable (however unlikely) that there’s a crown right here anyway. Otherwise, the show, as Shen notes, is curved on the sides, not like the Apple Watch Series 5.
It additionally seems like there’s some form of inexperienced notification gentle on certainly one of the buttons of the watch. A microphone gap rests between the two buttons.
Shen doesn’t say a lot else about the wearable however he’s beforehand confirmed that it’ll launch in the first quarter of this 12 months. We might count on the watch to present up at MWC 2020, until the latest coronavirus outbreak delays Oppo’s plans.
On one other observe, what number of Apple Watch clones will now we have to see earlier than firms notice they want to do one thing completely different? Recently, we noticed the Mi Watch and Xiaomi-backed Amazfit GTS sport comparable designs. Both even had crowns to full the Apple-esque look. Not to point out the numerous different low cost Apple dopplegangers like these ones.
Anyhow, apart from its clearly borrowed design, we glance ahead to how Oppo differentiates its smartwatch when it comes to options. We count on the regular health monitoring capabilities, mobile connectivity, and maybe an ECG sensor. What extra might Oppo put in it? We’ll replace you as quickly as we all know extra.
