OnePlus is all set to launch its OnePlus Watch alongside the OnePlus 9 series. The smartphones are scheduled to launch on March 23 and now the latest tweet by the company has confirmed the launch of the smartwatch.OnePlus was long-anticipated to step into the arena of smartwatches. The company so far has manufactured smartphones, earphones, earbuds, fitness bands, and Smart TVs.

OnePlus shared a short teaser of the smartwatch on Twitter to confirm the launch. The teaser barely reveals any details about the upcoming watch but OnePlus confirmed it by saying, "You asked for it. You're getting it." When you tap on the tweet you will be taken to the OnePlus community page. There you will find a note by a staff member asking the followers to guess the product. But only the wrong answers are expected out of the followers.
Giving a hint about the product, the staff member writes, "This fresh addition to the OnePlus family is healthy, punctual and even takes care of you while you sleep." There is no information about the smartwatch but from the teaser, it can be concluded that it is going to feature a round dial and could have a metal build. Just like the high-end smartwatches, it could also come with an AMOLED display.

Previous reports had hinted that the OnePlus smartwatch will run on Google's WearOS. The company is also expected to come up with its own proprietary OS system like the Huami Amazfit. The watch is expected to come with some of the common features of a smartwatch including the heart rate sensor, blood oxygen level tracker, sleep tracking, GPS tracking, and others. On the inside, it could use a Qualcomm Snapdragon chip to run the show. If reports are to be trusted, it will use the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 4100. The same chip has reportedly been used in the upcoming smartwatch lineup of Motorola. OnePlus could launch two variants of the smartwatch, one could be a trimmed down version of the main watch that the company is planning to launch. The India launch of the smartwatch seems imminent as it has already received Bureau of Indian Standard (BIS) certification. But OnePlus is yet to make the details about the smartwatch official, till then all the information that is floating on the internet should be taken with a grain of salt.

Apart from the watch, the company is all set to launch the much-awaited OnePlus 9 series. OnePlus is expected to drop two smartphones under the 9 series including the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro. The company has collaborated with popular camera company Hasselblad to fine-tune the cameras in the OnePlus 9 devices
