OnePlus is gearing up to launch its first ever wearable soon, as teased by its official Twitter account. However, instead of a smartwatch that was promised by company CEO Pete Lau in December, the new device appears to be a smartband – which is also another first for the brand.
Typical of any teaser, no further information regarding its specifications were provided apart from a small glimpse of the new device. But it didn’t take long until an unofficial source decided to spill the beans on OnePlus’ wearable.
