Qualcomm recently unveiled the Snapdragon W5 and W5+ wearable chipsets, and we already know that the Oppo Watch 3 series will be among the first smartwatches to use Qualcomm chipsets. The brand has now formally announced that the Watch 3 series will be released publicly on August 10, 2022 at 7 p.m. (local time) in China. The OPPO Zhimei Life Smart Camera will also be unveiled at the event.
Let’s take a closer look at the Oppo Watch 3 series specifications, features, and everything we know so far.
Oppo Watch 3 Series Launch Date Confirmed
The Oppo Watch 3 series is said to comprise at least three models, and we know at least one of them will be powered by the Snapdragon W5 Gen 1 SoC. This might imply that Oppo will be the first manufacturer to release a Snapdragon W5 Gen 1-powered wristwatch. The upcoming Oppo Watch 3 is said to include a low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) display with an adaptive refresh rate and ECG monitoring functionality. The new model will succeed the Oppo Watch 2 launched last year.
