Check out the OnePlus smartwatch that will never exist

45 sec read

In the two years since OnePlus exploded onto the smartphone scene with the OnePlus One, rumors that the company is working on everything from a smartwatch to a tablet have popped up, though no evidence of these claims has ever been presented. Now, just a couple of weeks after the release of the OnePlus 3, co-founder Carl Pei tweeted a sketch from last year of what would have been a OnePlus smartwatch, but never will be.

Ever since OnePlus unveiled its first flagship phone back in 2014, rumors of a company-built smartwatch have swirled, if somewhat irregularly. However, just in case you did not believe OnePlus CEO Pete Lau’s comments earlier this month, then let OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei put the rumors to bed through some previously unreleased sketches. Pei took to Twitter to unveil these design sketches, which show a circular smartwatch that can be detached and swapped between different watchbands. Based on the sketches, it looks like the smartwatch was designed to feature a quick-release button that would allow for easier swapping. Do not expect these sketches to be anything more, however, as Pei said the drawings are “what could have been but never will be.” A shame, since, based on the drawings, OnePlus’ smartwatch looks to have had rather good design DNA.
