The unveiling of a OnePlus smartwatch has apparently been put on hold, despite the brand teasing its arrival back in October.
That’s according to a tipster who says multiple sources have provided him the information that the OnePlus Watch announcement has been postponed without any new date. There were no details as to why things have been put on hold.

The same tipster suggested that OnePlus would be announcing the long rumored smartwatch back in October this year.
In fact, OnePlus themselves put out a tweet saying, “More things are coming to the OnePlus ecosystem. It’s just a matter of time.”
It was also accompanied by a sketch from 2016 that appeared to suggest a watch was in the works.
If this information proves accurate, then our wait for a OnePlus smartwatch goes on. It’s one that we first wrote about back in 2014, when alleged pictures first emerged of a device that used the name OnePlus OneWatch.
In 2015, cofounder Carl Pei who recently left the company, revealed it considered launching a smartwatch but it was canned at the last minute. Then earlier this year, a former employee revealed that OnePlus had been looking at smartwatches over the past year.
The name OnePlus Watch with a model number W301GB then appeared on an IMDA certification site listing the device as a wearable watch.
This has all happened over the last few months, adding fuel to speculation that a smartwatch announcement was on the horizon.
It’s also worth noting that OnePlus is part of the China-based BBK Group, which also includes Oppo and Realme who have both entered the smartwatch space in 2020.
If this latest information is reliable though, it looks the seven year wait for a OnePlus smartwatch is set to go on even longer.
Oh well, we’ve waited more than six years for it to arrive, a few more months won’t hurt us.
