Apple Watch Series 8 May Feature Flat Display, Claims Leaker [VIDEO]

According to leaker Jon Prosser of the YouTube channel Front Page Tech, the Apple Watch Series 8 will apparently include a flat display instead of the curved screens we’ve seen on models so far.

Apple was originally expected to swap curved edges for a flat display with last year’s Apple Watch Series 7another prediction Prosser was the first to make and also incorrect. That didn’t end happening, however, and the Series 7 preserved its predecessors’ legacy of curved displays.

To be fair, Prosser did say when he broke the news last year that the redesign could be intended for a different future Apple Watch model and not the Series 7.

Prosser shared renders of the supposed Apple Watch Series 8 in a recent YouTube video, which you can check out below:

The original rumour comes from supposed leaker ShrimpApplePro (ShrimpApplePro), who noted there is a “high chance that this is […] for the Apple Watch Series 8.”

ShrimpApplePro’s track record with Apple Watch display predictions over the past couple of years is arguably better than Prosser’s, given that the former was among the few who forecasted curved edges for the Series 7.

Prosser’s warned in his video that while there is a good chance the new flat screen is for the Apple Watch Series 8, it might end up being intended for another model entirely. After all, Apple has been tipped to launch a total of three new Apple Watch models in 2022. The oft-rumoured “rugged” Apple Watch would make a good candidate, too.

The Apple Watch Series 8 is expected to launch sometime this year with a few new health-related features, including temperature measurement.
