The company from Cupertino might launch a thinner Apple Watch this year.
According to the statements of a Wall Street analyst, who has recently noticed the supply chain in China, Apple could announce a new smartwatch later this year. in addition, Brian White thinks that only the iPhone 7 Plus will have two main cameras on the back while the new generation of smartphones will be launched with the intent of increasing the number of mobile devices sold. As you probably know, the number of terminals distributed in the last financial quarter was lower than in the same period last year, a first for Apple.
But perhaps the most interesting part of his claim is related to Apple Watch. Thus, the analyst believes that the successor of the current gadget could be announced within the next 3 months. Moreover, the new watch might be 20% or even 40% thinner than the current model, and its official presentation could take place during the annual event, WWDC, which will be held between June 13 and 17, at Moscone West in San Francisco.
According to rumors, Quanta Computer, a company based in Taiwan, is developing the next Apple Watch which is supposed to be released in the last part of the second quarter. Regardless of the date on which the launch will be held, Apple will increase it in the future, so that we will no longer see a new device every year. MacRumors suggests that a new Apple Watch might be released every 18 months.
Currently, it is clear that Apple Watch did not have the same impact as iPhone or iPad, but its popularity was great enough to help him win about 50% of the market. Apple Watch is available in two versions: 38 and 42 mm, the first having a screen of 1.32 inches while the second reaches 1.5 inches. The resolution varies between 340 × 270 pixels for the first and 390 × 312 pixels for the second. There are modems, WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 on each of them, microphone and the built-in speakers, and both use an S1 processor developed by Apple.
