Oppo will introduce a new smartwatch, revealed leakster Digital Chat Station on their Weibo page. The Watch4 Pro will come with a dual-platform design – a Snapdragon W5 for high-performance tasks, including calls, and a BES2700 chip for low-power mode.
The battery will be slightly bigger and the wearable will have an improved design compared to its predecessor. The device is expected to arrive later this month at an event that will also be the stage for the debut of the Find N3 and/or Find N3 Flip foldables.

Oppo is going to build the Watch4 Pro around a 316 stainless steel frame instead of using an aluminium alloy, and the base material will be ceramic, thus improving texture and strength.
The battery itself is said to have 570 mAh capacity, which is a 3% improvement. However, the BES2700 chip is widely used by Huawei, and the fellow Chinese company is known for the long battery life of its wearables. Previously, Oppo used an Apollo 4 Plus SoC for the low-power mode.
The Oppo Watch 3 Pro launched at CNY1,899 ($280/€275 at that time). The wearable never made it outside China, and we suspect the new smartwatch will have the same fate. We will know more after the Oppo event, for which we’ll hopefully get a date soon.
