The much-awaited OnePlus smartwatch is not running on Google’s Wear OS platform. This news came from Max Jambor who is for most of the times right about these topics. He shared many details about the watch on Twitter. Do you know that OnePlus is a part of a BBK Group in China where Oppo and Realme are also part of? They have also started to create smartwatches in 2020.
The Oppo Watch is running on Wear OS however the Realme runs because of the proprietary operating system. The companies like Huawei and Samsung have also put their smartwatches on sale that run with house platforms.
