At the I/O Developer Conference held a few days ago, Google announced that it would restart Wear OS in cooperation with Samsung, and said that it would work with multiple manufacturers to promote this smart watch system. And OPPO’s upcoming Watch 2 may be one of the early adopters.
Qualcomm is not too keen to promote smartwatch chipset updates, and smartwatch manufacturers are slower in adopting these chipsets. For a long time, most Android Wear (now Wear OS) devices were running on the least optimized Snapdragon Wear platform. Only Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 3 runs on the latest Snapdragon Wear 4100, which was launched 11 months ago.
According to the latest news, OPPO ’s upcoming Watch 2 will indeed be equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 4100 chipset. In addition, there is news that OPPO Watch 2 has a total of 7 models, covering 2 sizes of 42 mm and 46 mm, and 6 color options.
At the Reno6 conference, OPPO announced that it will launch a “full smart watch with almost no shortcomings” in the second half of this year, with a double-tap remote shooting function, and the chip used is co-developed with Ambiq.
Ambiq Apollo4s may be a co-processor used to run OPPO’s RTOS to achieve low power consumption mode, or it may be only for domestic models. In any case, rumors do believe that the international version of OPPO Watch 2 will run Wear OS like its predecessors.
