Recently, OnePlus confirmed that it will be announcing the OnePlus 9 series of smartphones on March 23. The event will see the arrival of the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro smartphones powered Hasselblad cameras. It has now confirmed that it will be also unleashing the much-anticipated OnePlus Watch smartwatch on March 23.
Earlier this year, OnePlus launched the OnePlus Band as is its first wearable device. The company had teased a smartwatch back in 2015. However, it decided to ditch it in a bd to focus more on its smartphone lineup. In October 2020, the company released the first teaser of its smartwatch, which suggested that it will go official in the coming months. In December, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau confirmed that it will be announced in early 2021. Shown below is the latest tweet, which confirms that the OnePlus Watch will be debuting on March 23.

Reports have suggested that there could be two models of the OnePlus Watch. The one with the W310GB model number may feature a square-shaped dial and it is likely to be called the OnePlus Watch.
The other variant with the W501GB model number could be sporting a circular screen and it may break cover as the OnePlus Watch RX. Both models are expected to land in India since they have received certification from the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). The OnePlus Watch series is speculated to run on Wear OS.
It is still unclear whether the company will be announcing the rumored OnePlus 9R/E smartphone alongside the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro smartphones. The Chinese manufacturer is also yet to confirm the arrival of the OnePlus Nord SE, which is nothing but a specially designed version of the original OnePlus Nord phone.
