A bigger Apple Watch Series 4 may be released later this year and will boast a better battery life.
It seems only a short while ago that the Apple Watch Series 3 came out and here we already have rumours for its predecessor. But with the very competitive smartwatch market, it’s not really a surprise, isn’t it?
As this news is unconfirmed, it is always best to be taken with a pinch of salt. But with word coming from someone who has a good track record of predicting Apple’s next product moves, we’re hoping there’s a lot of truth to this one.
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reports that the Cupertino-based company is planning to debut a redesigned Apple Watch with the Series 4 later this year. For all generations, Apple Watch has come in either 38mm or 42mm display. This time, he believes it will have a 15% larger display. The watch will also have better health monitoring functions and a bigger battery.
He also believes a combination of a ‘more trendy from factor design’ and the addition of new sensors beyond heart rate monitoring will help boost sales.
The report doesn’t go much into detail but we can think of some possibilities for its debut.
September 2017 was the release date of the 3rd generation Apple Watch. The Series 2 was also released on the same month a year earlier. Given this, we can assume that the latest iteration of the smartwatch will be announced in September of this year.
No details has come out with regards to the pricing just yet. Most likely it will be around the same as the Apple Watch 3 currently is at $329.
