The next generation Apple Watch Series 8 could feature a larger 1.99-inch display, according to a new report from Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC).

Young revealed the larger display size in response to a tweet.

@DSCCRoss you’ve mentioned in the past three sizes for Apple Watch this year - is that including an SE refresh with the existing display or are you seeing anything larger than the 45mm S7?

Replying to @iCave_Dave
New size is larger, 1.99".

A 1.99-inch (50.5mm) display would be about 5% larger than the current 45mm Apple Watch Series 7 display which measures 1.9-inches diagonally.

Notably, over the weekend, Bloomberg's Mark Gurman reported that the Apple Watch Series 8 would get the ability to assess body temperature but any other hardware changes would be minor.

Apple is expected to unveil the new Apple Watch at a press event this fall. Please download the iClarified app or follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and RSS for more updates.
