Next Generation Apple Watch to Feature New Design, Larger Display, Bigger Battery [Report]

Posted by · 10435 views · Translate

Apple's next generation Apple Watch will reportedly feature a new design, larger display, and bigger battery, according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

In an investor note sent out this morning, Kuo predicted that Apple would launch the revamped Apple Watch this fall. The new model is expected to feature a display that is 15% larger than the current generation's. It's unclear if this will be achieved using smaller bezels or whether the dimensions of the device will be changed.

Kuo also mentions an increase in battery capacity and enhanced health monitoring, reports 9to5Mac.

The analyst believes a combination of a ‘more trendy from factor design’, the addition of new sensors beyond heart rate monitoring, and lowering of prices of older models will drive Apple Watch sales to new records.

KGI is predicting Apple Watch sales of 22-24 million units in 2018 but believes that number could rise to 50 million units a year in the long term.

Troll of the year award does not go to you but Worst troll of the year award does. The fact that you change your name to match other peoples names shows how pathetic your life is and you have to try to make other peoples life as pathetic as yours. My life is great cuz I’m not a deep down in the depths of the heart bitter ugly individual. It doesn’t work, your life is a joke and that is why you trying to troll but you end up being the worst troll.

Who is Kuo? Some like a Nostradamus Thing? It’s logical to upgrade a device after few years

"It's unclear if this will be achieved using smaller bezels or whether the dimensions of the device will be changed." Since the current bezels are MUCH smaller than 15% of the watch, clearly the device's dimensions will change.

Yep, because that’s what Apple always does, make things fatter and uglier. LoL!

This "garbage" would be fat if it had a blob lump in the first place that would sag like goop and uglier if someone made another one of those unlikely designs like we keep seeing from those paper thin iGalaxy concepts that claim that it's the new iPhone look when it doesn't match the iPhone (why I mentioned iGalaxy) but beside that, you're basically saying you want to throw money towards a product thus making a slight difference for the quality watch makers to continue in their success one user at a time encourages. Glad dumpster diving is a thing because I'll make use of the watch that everyone praised, loves, adores, and knows that it has helped them and has helped me, but I'm upgrading to the better than best. BTW the only thing truely fat about the watch is the wad of cash it continue to pull in if not success aka truth, facts, reality, vivid, no BS or lies or gimmicks or tricks or bias or false beliefs.
