OnePlus’ ‘One’ phone hit a few (okay, more than a few) bumps in the road since its initial launch. Production was an issue initially, then there were some OS/software issues, and now the company is looking to possibly drop its native CyanogenMod altogether.
But that doesn’t mean the company will stop forging ahead.
The watch (as seen above) features a circular display, a much requested smartwatch feature. We’re also hearing OnePlus will use sapphire glass crystal for its screen, which Apple is rumored to be using on its iWatch. Other rumors include a curved battery which will allow it to be placed right in the watchstrap, a low-power OLED display and Qi wireless charging support.
However, while sketches of the device (seen below) talk about a configurable hardware button, there doesn’t seem to be one in the leaked product page. This marks an inconsistency that should be noted — yet another reason not to assume this rumor is true.
We have no idea what OS the watch will run, but Android Wear is clearly the consumers’ first choice. Stay tuned for more on this.
