Oppo Watch will reportedly launch in India along with Oppo Reno 4 Pro. According to a report, the Oppo Reno 4 series is expected to launch in the country in the third week of July. The Oppo Watch was first unveiled back in March in China along with the Oppo Find X2 series. Though the company had introduced the flagship Find X2 series in India in June, the smartwatch is yet to make an appearance.
The development was shared by MySmartPrice citing industry sources. The report, however, did not disclose the Oppo Watch's exact date of launch or India pricing. It was also added that the smartwatch would arrive along with Oppo Reno 4 Pro. The new Oppo Reno 4 models will come to India with localised features, the company had announced last month.
