Renders of Mobvoi’s Wear OS 3 smartwatch have leaked
After Qualcomm announced a new line of new chipsets in July, Mobvoi is the first to confirm that its next-generation smartwatches will come with Qualcomm’s new wearable chipset. While not officially named, leaker Kuba Wojciechowski has posted a render of the alleged Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 5. For the same reason smartphone OEMs don’t use the number “4” on their products (tetraphobia), Mobvoi is believed to ignore the fourth option and simply call it 5.

The picture shows the new design of the watch case. Instead of two crowns, the new wearable has a single crown with a rotating dial and a flat accessory key above it. Aside from the layout change, the watch case design retains the general shape of previous TicWatch Pro models, including the zigzag texture around the bezel. The watch strap also seems to be made of hard silicone, as Mobvoi has used in previous models. That’s all we can say about this new render.
According to the whistleblower, Mobvoi is close to releasing the smartwatch to the public. Mobvoi teased its next-generation TicWatch Pro in July shortly after Qualcomm announced its new line of smartwatch chipsets, and we haven’t heard much about the watch since.

The Oppo Watch 3 and Oppo Watch 3 Pro are the first smartwatches to launch with the Snapdragon W5+ Gen 1, and the Mobvoi smartwatch is likely to come with the new chipset. The Snapdragon W5+ is built on a power-efficient 4nm process with up to 50% better battery life and up to twice the performance in 30% less space compared to the Snapdragon Wear 4100+ platform.
