Design & Display
The company has already revealed how the Realme Watch will look like. At the first look, the device seems very similar to the Apple Watch. The wearable device from Apple also seems to be the design inspiration for the OPPO Watch.
As Realme is backed by OPPO, it’s not surprising that the upcoming Realme Watch seems almost same as the OPPO Watch. It won’t be surprising if the device is just a rebranded model of the same with minor changes here and there.
It is said that the Realme Watch features a 1.4-inch colour touchscreen display and will offer customisable straps and personalised watch faces. It will be a TFT LCD display offering a screen resolution of 320 x 320 pixels.
