Chinese smartphone manufacturer OPPO is rumored to be working on a successor to its OPPO Watch wearable. The new variant would be available as a 46mm and 42mm smartwatch and get a faster Wear 4100 chip from Qualcomm.

Information about the possible smartwatch was found in a build file, a tipster tells XDA Developers. Seven different variants could potentially become available; that is 46mm and 42mm variants with three and four different color options respectively. The tipster expects the wearable to get a Snapdragon Wear 4100-soc, because the build file mentions an ‘msm8937_32go’-soc. That matches that from the TicWatch Pro 3, which is currently the only smartwatch with a Wear 4100 chip.

The tipster further reports that the wearable’s OS is based on Android 8.1, and that the OPPO Watch 2 will not run WearOS upon release in China. This would probably be the case with a possible international release. Furthermore, the alleged smartwatch would receive 16GB of storage space, compared to 8GB in the current OPPO Watch.

The OPPO Watch 2 would get a rectangular design, just like its predecessor. This is evident from photos of another informant, in which the watch is teased. OPPO itself already showed teasers of a new smartwatch during the announcement of its Reno 6 series smartphones. However, it is not yet known whether the teased watch is the OPPO Watch 2. It is also unclear whether the smartwatch will be available exclusively in China, or whether the watch will also appear in Europe after its possible release.
