OPPO Watch – Expected Specifications and Features
Brian Shen, Vice President and President of Global Marketing, OPPO had revealed in February that the OPPO Watch will ship with a 3D glass curved screen. He also added that the new technology will create new benchmarks in the wearable industry.
Moreover, you will be able to make and receive calls. The teaser image clearly displays the calling functionality options. You can also visualize the name of the caller including the time on the top right-hand side. The upcoming OPPO Watch also includes a microphone as per the image posted on Weibo. The green line on the bottom button looks interesting to watch.

Integration of WearOS on OPPO Watch
The OPPO Watch also includes functionality to send a message to the caller in case if you are unable to establish connectivity. We are unable to identify any knob that would look identical to that of the Apple Watch’s Digital Crown.
However, the watch could ship with a large secondary button, which you can use to work with the wearable. You can also expect the availability of the OPPO Watch in three color variants including nice blue color. The image reflects minor variations to the band when compared with Apple’s wearable. Talking about the operating segment, the OPPO Watch could be pre-loaded with Google’s WearOS platform.
Oppo Find X2 Rumored Specifications
As mentioned above, the OPPO Find X2 will launch on March 6 along with the OPPO Watch. The new smartphone will feature either a 6.5-inch or 6.7-inch Super AMOLED hole-punch display. You can expect a 3K resolution display with a 120Hz refresh rate. There are conflicting reports regarding the display size but we can expect at least 6.5-inch to combat the competition.
The OPPO Find X2 will be integrated with Snapdragon 865 processor with 5G support. The rumors state that the phone will carry 8GB RAM but we expect up to 12GB RAM and 512GB storage.
On the optics, the OPPO Find X2 will carry a 64MP primary camera coupled with a 13MP telephoto and 12MP wide-angle lens respectively. However, few reports on the rumor mills state the presence of a massive 48MP wide-angle lens. The handset will most likely borrow power via the 4200mAh battery.
The upcoming OPPO Find X2 will provide support for 65W Super VOOC 2.0 charging technology, which gives you improved charging speeds. The rumors indicate that the smartphone will cost more than INR 1 Lakh. We will know about the actual price after the launch event.
