Apple is Allegedly Planning to Increase Apple Watch Display Sizes Again

Posted February 8, 2023 at 6:14pm by iClarified
Apple is planning to increase the display size of all its 2024 Apple Watch models, according to a new report from Omdia analyst David Hsieh.

The Apple Watch was first introduced in 2014 and Apple has purportedly been working hard to bring some major updates to the smartphone lineup for its tenth anniversary.

Here's a look at what Hsieh predicts:


-
Apple Watch Series X
In 2024, the Series 8 and 9 (1.71/1.92 inches) will evolve to Series X (X meaning tenth) with a bigger screen (1.89/2.04 inches). The displays will have the same supplier, LG Display, and take LTPO backplanes. Apple might announce the product in late 2023 to commercialize it in 2024.

Apple Watch SE 3
In 2024, the Apple Watch SE 2 series will evolve into the SE 3. Its screen sizes will be the same as Series 8 and 9 (1.71/1.92 inches), and the LTPO OLED panel supplier will be JDI. Apple might announce the product in late 2023 to commercialize it in 2024.

Apple Watch Ultra 2
The biggest evolution will be the Apple Watch Ultra 2 in 2024, which will adopt a new Micro LED display. Apple might announce the product in late 2023 to commercialize in 2024. The panel size is 2.13 inches with 325 PPI; therefore, the resolution will presumably be 540x440 or 556x452, which means there will be over 800,000 Micro LED chips aligning with the subpixels, including redundant LED chips. State-of-the-art technology will be used to produce this superior Micro LED display.

Apple is reportedly co-developing its new Micro LED display with EPISTAR and ams OSRAM (epi wafer/chip), LuxVue (singulation and transfer), LG Display (LTPO TFT backplane), TSMC (transfer and CMOS backplane), and ITRI (micro-assembly). If successful, Apple will likely use this display technology in more devices; however, the shift could take a decade.


Although Hsieh predicts a possible unveiling of larger Apple Watches this year, it seems unlikely that Apple would unveil the 2024 models in 2023, especially since he's still expecting a Series 9 release.

Previous rumors corroborate a micro LED Apple Watch for next year; however, this is the first we've heard of Apple skipping an update to the Apple Watch Ultra in 2023. Currently, the Apple Watch Ultra features a 1.93-inch OLED display.
