Various analysts are suggesting that a third, larger Apple Watch could appear in the fall. Ross Young, who says he has been in the display industry for 25 years, explained now in a tweetthat a display with a diagonal of 1.99 inches (50 millimeters) can be assumed. This information is supported by statements by the analyst Jeff Pu, who also speaks of a 2-inch variant in a paper to investors, which is said to be manufactured by the Apple supplier Luxshare.
Two possible reasons for the size
Compared to the 45 millimeter version of the Apple Watch Series 7 with a 1.901 inch display and the even smaller 41 mm version, the almost two inch screen would be noticeably larger. However, it is still unclear exactly what Apple plans to do with it. There are two different assumptions about this.
One thesis is that Apple is planning a more stable outdoor version of the Apple Watch, which is also larger. This “rugged” version should be of particular interest to athletes, who are offered more in watchOS 9 with expanded fitness functions.
The second assumption picks up on a rumor that many already believed with a view to the Series 7 of 2021: There was talk of a new design with a flat display that has smoothly sloping housing edges on the sides – matching the iPhone. Due to the lack of rounded edges, the slightly increased display size could also be explained by this.
Enjoy with caution
However, a look at the current Series 7 also shows that the well-known influencers and journalists such as Jon Prosser and Mark Gurman were not as accurate with the Apple Watch as they were with other Apple products such as the iPhone. Regarding the failed forecast of the flat design, it was then said that the information was not incorrect, but that the time of publication had been misinterpreted. The same could now be the case with regard to the display size.
