Oppo is launching a smartwatch soon

Oppo is launching a smartwatch soon Oppo is launching a smartwatch soon image 1 Even though we know the Apple Watch is a relative success, the jury is still out on many smartwatches that aren't GPS sports watches. However, companies like Huawei and Samsung have persisted with new devices in recent times and now Oppo is set to join the fray. A Weibo post by the company’s vice president Shen Yiren said that the company is working on a smartwatch but it won't be out this year.

The details of the innovative smartwatch have recently been revealed in a patent, which was granted to Oppo last year. If Oppo actually manages to manufacture and release the design in this patent, it'll make the Samsung Galaxy Fold , Huawei Mate X and Royole Flexpai look comparatively pedestrian.

The patent for the Oppo Foldable smartwatch was discovered by Lets Go Digital and they have created some renders of what this new smartwatch made look like from the patent filing. The device has a rectangular screen which can be folded away into a smaller square display.

Huawei Mate X and Samsung Galaxy Fold could be in for some stiff competition if this folding smartwatch from Oppo is ever released, because who needs a folding phone when you can have a futuristic smartwatch instead?

The details of the innovative smartwatch have recently been revealed in a patent, which was granted to Oppo last year. The drawings show a slim wrist-sized single display penel, which can be increased by as much as 200%.

Dutch blog LetsGoDigital has mocked-up a series of high-resolution images of the mysterious folding device based on the line drawings filed with the Oppo patent.

This is the craziest smartwatch design you’ve ever seen, and it’s not from Apple or Samsung The watch display expands to become a smartphone on your wrist -- and expands again, if needed, to the size of a tablet strapped to your wrist -- was that it looks like something out of a sci-fi movie. Also, that this device must surely be at least as fragile as Samsung’s once-easily breakable Galaxy Fold. At any rate, IBM’s newly issued patent for this multi-function smartwatch is nothing if not ambitious.

Oppo smartwatch : Story so far. Oppo filed a patent for a folding smartwatch . Back in summer 2019, Oppo ’s vice president, Shen Yiren, announced via Yiren did offer some hints about the design of the watch, though, indicating that Oppo was debating whether to go with a circular or rectangular display

Smartwatch designs from companies that aren’t Apple or Samsung are starting to get pretty trippy these days, with new concepts emerging that seem to have more of a science fiction provenance than a That said, a smartwatch of some kind is certainly a possibility for Oppo , which already released

It shows how the single panel could be used for quick interactions, such as checking the time or reading notifications, as well as how the larger display could be used to watching videos, surf the internet, or replying to messages.

The patent also demonstrates multiple methods of unfurling, including a folding display method, similar to the folding smartphones we've seen, and a rollable display, which is similar to the LG Rolling OLED TV we saw at CES.

If Oppo actually manages to manufacture and release the design in this patent, it'll make the Samsung Galaxy Fold, Huawei Mate X and Royole Flexpai look comparatively pedestrian. However, that's a pretty massive if. After all, Samsung and Huawei have both delayed their first foray into foldable smartphones due to issues with the flexible OLED panels.

However, we think the form factor of a folding smartwatch could be more useful than the large folding tablet-like designs of Samsung and Huawei.

As it stands, smartwatches like the Galaxy Watch Active, Huawei Watch GT, and Apple Watch are able to display text messages, news alerts, important emails, and more, but push users to their smartphone to read more detail, or reply using their voice, or use pre-canned responses.

If this folding Oppo smartwatch ever does make it to a wrist near you, it's likely going to be a very pricey piece of technology – expect Rolex money – because based on what we've seen so far, foldables aren't cheap!
