Like any other newbie connected device maker, China's OnePlus is ambitious about its future growth as a successful smartphone producer.
The startup founded by former Oppo executive Pete Lau, is slowly and steady gaining popularity after its first ever handset has managed to create stir in the handset market worldwide. Following the success of the OnePlus One flagship smartphone, the hardware startup appears to jump into the wearable segment at the earliest.
Apparently the Chinese firm is looking to launch a futuristic smartwatch called OneWatch. This could be well become a Moto 360 killer, if it gets a reasonable price tag.
According to a report published by BGR India, OnePlus is about to launch the OneWatch any time soon. The news site has also shared a number of images that could hint at the existence of the OneWatch smartwatch.
To begin with, the OneWatch will reportedly feature a round face, similar to that of the Moto 360. The device is said to come with an OLED display protected by Sapphire glass and curved trip. Notably, the watch will support wireless-charging battery built-into a leather strap. However, the report didn't mention whether the watch will run on the Android Wear.
Consequently, this forthcoming smartwatch shows up on the OnePlus webpage, confirming most of the leaks. The leak doesn't reveal anything new about the device beyond confirming the design and marketing name.
We won't know anything for sure until OnePlus makes an official announcement, but after today's leak we're guessing it won't be much longer before the device is launched. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
