The OnePlus OneWatch Breaks Cover

July 31, 2014 - Written By Alexander Maxham

I can see the comments now, saying that OnePlus should be working on making the OnePlus One available first before working on newer devices. Well folks, that’s not how these things go. As most devices take nearly a year to develop and announce, if they wait until they can sell the OnePlus One without invites, then their company would be almost dead. As they’d have nothing new for a couple of years, unfortunately.

According to BGR.in, there is a OneWatch in the making and they have a screenshot of it on their site, as well as some early drawings of the device. Which you can see in the gallery at the bottom of this post. Now we don’t know too much about this watch just yet, but judging by the pictures, it appears to be a round watch like the Moto 360, that everyone’s clamoring for. It looks like it’s a bit thinner too. Hopefully that doesn’t mean a smaller battery, since the current crop of smartwatches don’t last very long as it is. It’s said to have an OLED display along with Sapphire glass. As well as using Qi Charging to charge the smartwatch. There’s also a curved battery in the leather band, which is something I’ve been waiting on manufacturers to do. Add a small battery into the band of the watch, so that it remains thin, but can last longer. According to the drawings, so far this looks like it’ll be a great smartwatch. But it may not be as cheap as we are all hoping seeing as it does use a circular display, and those aren’t cheap, especially with Sapphire Glass.

There’s also no word on whether OnePlus is going to opt for Android Wear on here or go for something else like their own version of Android with a CyanogenMod UI on top. We’ll have to wait to find out more on that.
