Oppo Watch 2 with Qualcomm Snapdragon 4100 Officially Launched

The Oppo Watch 2, which has the same Apple Watch-style look as the first Oppo Watch but with better internal hardware, has released in China. Oppo Watch 2 features Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 4100 chipset, which boasts a battery life of up to 16 days on a single charge when used in low-power mode.

The Oppo Watch 2 will be available in 42mm and 46mm sizes, with a curved OLED display that refreshes at 60Hz and has a 326ppi resolution. In addition to heart rate, sleep, and blood oxygen monitoring, both versions will include an optional eSIM. There are also over 100 sport tracking modes available, including 5ATM water resistance for swimming and a built-in GPS to ensure correct logging of exercise. For individuals who don't want or need LTE, the smaller 42mm size will also have a Bluetooth-only mode.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 4100 chipset is the most significant update to the Oppo Watch 2. This will definitely deliver a significant performance boost over the previous version's Snapdragon Wear 3100.

The Watch 2 can last up to 16 days on a single charge, according to Oppo, but only when using the built-in Power Saver mode. While this is remarkable, when using this mode, several features will be disabled. Without this mode turned on, the 46mm Watch 2 can survive for up to four days on a single charge. VOOC charging is supported, which can quickly recharge the battery.

The Oppo Watch 2 uses Oppo's Android-based ColorOS, not Google's WearOS, just like the Chinese version of the original Oppo Watch. Last year's model was eventually distributed outside of China with WearOS and Google Play Store access, but Oppo has not yet announced any intentions for a wider release.

Pre-orders for the Oppo Watch 2 are already open, and shipping will begin on August 6 in China. The 42mm Bluetooth-only model costs ¥1300 (~$200), the eSIM model costs ¥1500 (~$230), and the 46mm eSIM model costs ¥2,000 (~$308).

Facebook adds End-to-End Encryption for Voice and Video calls on Messenger

Facebook is bringing plenty of new features to Messenger users who enable end-to-end encryption (E2EE). With E2EE enabled, you can now make voice or video calls to Messenger contacts, just like you can with WhatsApp. Anyone outside of the sender and recipient, including Facebook, will not be able to listen to your voice and video calls if you use end-to-end encryption (E2EE) option, so it’s like adding an extra layer of security to your voice and video chats on Messenger. You can still report messages to Facebook if required, according to the company. Pic Credit: Facebook End-to-end encryption for text messages has been enabled in Facebook Messenger in 2016, when the company launched a "secret conversation" option to the app. That mode now includes the ability to make phone calls. Messenger now receives more than 150 million video calls every day, according to Facebook, which claims the service is being added as interest in voice and video chats surges. A minor update is bein
