Apple Rumoured to Test 1.5-inch OLED Display for Smart Watch

A couple new reports claim Apple has already sent a trial batch of iWatches to Foxconn, as highlighted by Macotakara. The Japanese blog points to today’s edition of Taiwanese newspaper the Economic Times, providing juicy news on the anticipated new product Apple is reportedly working on.

The first report says RiTdisplay was supposed to receive orders for an 1.8-inch OLED display, but Apple has decided to go with a smaller, 1.5-inch OLED display that uses one-glass-touch sensors, allowing a thin design for the product.

This report appears to reinforce a December rumour noting that Apple’s smart watch will sport a 1.5-inch OLED display, manufactured by RiTdisplay.

The second report points to Foxconn, which allegedly received orders for Apple’s smart watch. However, the Taiwanese sources have knowledge only a small volume of smart watches (just over 1,000 units), which could mean the gadget is in the early testing phase.

Rumors of an iWatch surfaced earlier this year, when a couple of reports claimed that Apple is developing a smart watch. Bloomberg claimed that the company has a team of 100 designers working on the project.
