As technology advances by the day, gadgets become more and more compact, as we are able to integrate more circuits, more transistors into the device more than ever.
We began with a giant server, computers the size of a convention hall, then devices began getting more compact, the era of smartphones and smartwatches began. Now, once again, we are pushing the boundaries of technology by attempting to make a smart ring that can fit onto your finger.
The smart ring concept is still in stages of infancy as the first smart ring, the Motiv ring released in 2017.
Oppo is looking to enter the market as per the latest reports. The company has secured a patent as well to develop its own Smart Ring.
A Chinese insider reports that from the QCC database, they came across the patent that Oppo submitted for its own smart ring which was approved by the authorities.
The listing in the database notes that the Oppo Smart Ring is an accessory and not an electronic product. It is supposed to be a fashion statement and is supposed to match its smart glasses. Oppo just released its first-ever smart glass, the Oppo Air Glass last week.
The Oppo Air Glass is a pair of AR (assisted reality) smart eyeglasses released by Oppo. The glass features futuristic styling with a single lens design and weighs less than 30g.
Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 4100 chip, it has functionalities such as weather reminders, schedule reminders, a Health app, and a teleprompter that will benefit users with speeches, presentations, and many more situations.
As for other details, such as the specs, battery, or design of the Oppo Smart Ring, it was not listed within the database. Hopefully, the development of the Oppo Smart Ring is already underway as the concept is very fascinating.
