The Oppo Watch 3 is getting more precise, with 2 processors and an XXL OLED screen

Oppo’s Watch 3 will be unveiled in detail today thanks to its announcement in China, but the establishment of pre-orders on site allows us to have a fairly precise overview of the specifications of the watch… with a few hours in advance.

Oppo will hold a conference in China in a few hours as of this writing for the announcement of several new features, including a new tablet… and its Watch 3. A few hours before the presentation, it is the latter that interests us since the setting up pre-orders in China allows us to know a little more about its specifications.

Note that the Oppo Watch 3 has already been the subject of numerous leaks, revealing part of its design and some of its characteristics. We learned that the watch would probably come in two versions. A classic model (probably the one unveiled above), and a high-end version with a more opulent metal case, a screen slightly curved at the edges and a rotating crown similar to that offered on the Apple Watch.

Double processor, XXL OLED screen and persistent display on the menu?

GSMArena reports that this high-end version, the Oppo Watch 3 Pro, would feature a 1.91-inch AMOLED LTPO display. This is a significant diagonal for a connected watch, equivalent to that of the latest Apple Watch Series 7, which Apple had precisely wanted larger. For comparison, Realme’s Watch 3 Pro had to make do with a smaller screen, around 1.80 inches.

The presence of an AMOLED LTPO panel on the Oppo Watch 3 Pro would also allow it to sport a mode Always-on Display… and therefore a persistent display. It is not known, however, what the display characteristics are for the Oppo Watch 3 ” classic “.

Anyway, the watch should benefit from a dual processor, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon W5 Gen 1 SoC coupled with an Apollo 4 Plus co-processor designed in-house by Oppo. These two chips will notably be responsible for animating the latest version of ColorOS Watch.

We finally learn that the Oppo Watch 3 would be able to offer an ECG (electrocardiogram) function, but also eSIM compatibility. Unsurprisingly, the new connected tocante from the Chinese manufacturer would also support the NFC standard and would benefit from a water resistance of 5ATM (for immersion up to 50 meters).
