There’s been a lot of news this week from Alphabet in the Wear OS world that could buy Fitbit to a new Moto 360 and even a new chipset as well. Now, we get a better look at the upcoming Mi Watch from Xiaomi, which is expected to run on Wear OS, including a first look at its design.
As mentioned in an earlier teaser, it is clear that Xiaomi’s first smartwatch for Wear OS, the Mi Watch, will steal Apple Watch’s design. That means we get a square design and display as a rotating crown with a button on the right side. Underneath, there’s another key, just like the Apple Watch.
Xiaomi shows the watch’s internals in another teaser image that includes Wi-Fi, GPS, and NFC. A “high-performance” CPU is also available. Specifically exhibited in the image is a Qualcomm chip that XDA speculates will be the Snapdragon Wear 3100. The other comprehensive components include a vibration motor, speaker and cellular connectivity eSIM as well.
There’s still a lot that we don’t know about the Xiaomi Mi Watch, including how the company can run on Wear OS, but on November 5th, we’ll get more details.
