While OnePlus introduced its new smartphone 8T, it made another important announcement. The company has announced that it will add a new device to its product portfolio soon. OnePlus signaled that it will make its long-awaited smartwatch announcement soon.
The history of OnePlus’s smartwatches goes back to 2016. Although the company prepared a full-fledged smart watch in this process, it gave up announcing this product at the last minute. Not satisfied with the result, OnePlus decided to wait to offer a device at the same level as the other products in its portfolio.
A tweet posted in 2016 by Carl Lei, one of the founders of OnePlus, revealed illustrations of the canceled smartwatch. A new post from the company’s official account confirms the round watch design. The images here are similar to Lei’s post dated 2016.
