Apple Watch to Feature Larger Display, New Watch Faces: Bloomberg
Apple Watch Series 7 will ship with larger display sizes and new watch faces that take advantage of the additional screen real estate.
Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman claims Series 7 will come in larger 41mm and 45mm case sizes (up from 40mm and 44mm) with bigger screens to match. As with the Series 4 launch, there will reportedly be new watch faces to take advantage of the added visual real estate. One will apparently include an update to the data-heavy Infograph Modular face.
The report says that the Series 7 will focus on an overall redesign with flatter edges, flatter screens, thinner bezels, and more colour options.
“I’m told that Apple will bundle multiple new watch faces to take advantage of the bigger screen, including an updated Infograph Modular face,” he added, noting that this will be only the second screen size increase in the wearable’s history after the Apple Watch 4 reduced the bezels in 2017.
The Series 7 might also pack a faster processor and improved ultra-wideband tech, although any advanced health sensors might have to wait until the 2022 model, as Apple “may” include a body-temperature sensor in next year’s model.
The Apple Watch Series 7 is expected to be announced and released in September alongside the iPhone 13.
