There has been a lot of news in the Wear OS world this week from Alphabet possibly buying Fitbit to a new Moto 360 and even a new chipset too. Now we have a better look at Xiaomi’s upcoming Mi Watch, which should run on Wear OS, including a first look at its design.
XDA-Developers spotted a few posts on Weibo that confirm the design and several details of the upcoming Mi Watch. First, let’s take a look at the design here.
As noted in a previous teaser, it’s clear that Xiaomi’s first Wear OS smartwatch, the Mi Watch, is going to steal the design of the Apple Watch. This means that we get a square design and a display with a button on the right side that doubles as a rotating crown. There is yet another button below, just like the Apple Watch.
In another teaser image, Xiaomi shows off the internal components of the watch which include Wi-Fi, GPS, and NFC. There is also a “high performance” processor. There is a Qualcomm chip specifically shown in the picture which XDA speculation will be the Snapdragon Wear 3100. Other detailed components include a vibration motor, speaker, and eSIM for cellular connectivity as well.
There’s still a lot we don’t know about the Xiaomi Mi Watch, including how the company is going to build on Wear OS, but we’ll have more details on November 5.
