Tipster Max Jambor also shared that the OnePlus Watch 2 is gearing up for its big debut at MWC 2024. Now, while the original OnePlus Watch has a custom OS, its successor is rumoured to embrace Google's Wear OS. The burning question remains whether it'll be Wear OS 3 or the latest Wear OS 4. Jambor hinted that the Watch 2 will come with Wear OS 4 when it hits the shelves.

The Watch 2 is also expected to sport a 1.43-inch AMOLED circular display complemented by a couple of buttons on the side for easy navigation. Health and fitness enthusiasts can look forward to a variety of wellness-focused features packed into the device. And, fast charging capability is expected to be included too.
