Looks like the mythical OnePlus Watch won’t continue to be vaporware for much longer. The company’s CEO and co-founder, Pete Lau, has confirmed on Twitter that the smartwatch will be released early next year.
This follows a tweet from OnePlus in October when it was revealed that the first sketches of a smartwatch were created inside the company all the way back in 2015. So it’s definitely been a very, very long time coming.
Many of you said you wanted a watch, and as you might have heard over the weekend—we’re making one, to be released early next year. Wishes do come true.🎁 https://t.co/H1Fqv9srXj

According to prior rumors, the OnePlus Watch might be round, in which case we wouldn’t be at all surprised if it had a similar design to the vivo Watch, but hopefully with a Snapdragon Wear 4100 platform. Apparently we won’t have to speculate for much longer, as the official launch is coming soon.
