Chinese manufacturer, Vivo, will be releasing its first set of smartwatches pretty soon. According to popular Weibo leakster, @DigitalChatStation, these smartwatches will arrive within two months. The watch has two versions and according to the leak, the male version has a 46mm round dial with a colour OLED display. The screen supports various routine functions such as heart rate, blood oxygen monitoring, and NFC.
The Vivo Watch will be available in 42mm and 46mm models with a leather strap. The battery life is nominally up to 18 days. According to the leak, the Vivo Watch will have four colour options. As for the price, it will target the $150 benchmark.
In February of this year, Vivo registered the trademark of Vivo Watch in the European Trademark Office (EUIPO). In April, the State Intellectual Property Office published a dynamic display appearance of Vivo’s smartwatch. Furthermore, back in May, we saw an exposure of the design of this smartwatch. In June, two more Vivo smartwatch products (WA2056 and WA2052) passed the national 3C certification and support 5V1A chargers. Last month, LetsGo Digital created a rendering of the exterior of a Vivo smartwatch based on previous information.
Gizchina News of the week
From the series of information over the past few months, the Vivo smartwatches are probably closer to launch. Presently, Vivo is the only top Chinese smartphone brand that does not have its own smartwatch products. It is worth mentioning that ASUS has previously launched a smartwatch product called ASUS VivoWatch.
In addition, the leakster also said that Vivo will release a mid-range 5G mobile phone in the near future. He further claims that the flagship model may arrive by the end of the year. His leak claims that the new smartphone will come with an RGBW array of lenses next year. This geometry will increase light input by 160%. This technology is currently in testing.
