Oppo Watch 2 to pack the Snapdragon Wear 4100 chip & 16GB storage

According to info uncovered from firmware files, Oppo Watch 2 will pack the Snapdragon Wear 4100 chip, along with 16GB storage.

This is according to a tipser that goes by the name mlgmxyysd (via XDA Developers). You can see below the table which shows all the different models that are mentioned in the code. This includes two size variants, 46mm and 42mm, along with various colour choices. All together there are seven different iterations.

This implies that Oppo has chosen to retain the size choices from the first generation timepiece. But other things have changed.

Perhaps the biggest upgrade is that the next timepiece will feature the Snapdragon Wear 4100 processor. The original comes with the 3100 chip. This is referred to as “msm8937_32go) in the firmware file which is apparently the same code that is mentioned in the Mobvoi TicWatch 3 Pro firmware.

Watches with the latest Qualcomm chip are few and far between. Mobvoi TicWatch 3 Pro is one of the handful that come with the latest tech. Having said that, we are expecting more devices to join this exclusive club in the near future. This includes the new Motorola watches which might land in the coming weeks.

The other Oppo Watch upgrade that is currently known is a boost in native storage. This will be doubled to 16GB. Further info points to a selection of new watch faces, stress detection and a new Relax app. The international version of the watch will run on WearOS while the Chinese version will run on proprietary software.

No word yet on a possible release date. But we are not really expecting anything at least until late summer or early autumn.

The latest leak follows another Oppo-related one. A few days ago the company has secured the EU naming rights to Oppo Watch Free. We suspect this is an amended version of the original device. It is not clear yet what upgrades are in store but the name and registration details suggest this will be a more sporty take on the first generation watch.
