Apple is expected to present its new hardware generation in the third week of September. Besides the iPhone 13, the Apple Watch Series 7 is a sure candidate for an update. According to new leaks and render images, the new smartwatch is likely to get a design update for the first time since the first generation.
Apple Watch Series 7 with flat edges
The new Apple Watch Series 7 has been part of various leaks for months now. Phone Arena, however, shows new render images of the upcoming generation a few weeks before the official presentation, which point to an exciting design update.
According to the images, Apple will use flat edges for the first time, similar to the iPhone 12 generation. The case is also said to be larger compared to the Series 6. Allegedly, the previous sizes of 40 mm and 44 mm have to give way to new cases in the variants 41 mm and 45 mm – okay, that’s not too big of a change.
However, since the screen edges of the Apple Watch Series 7 are significantly smaller, this results in a noticeably larger display (and hopefully increased battery capacity). At the same time, the flat edges make for a more modern and sleeker look.
Display, Sensors and Wristbands
Currently, it can be assumed that Apple will probably once again rely on an LTPO OLED display with always-on function. However, new watch faces will apparently be used, which can already be seen in the render images. As far as the sensors are concerned, we should not expect any major updates this year. The functions of the Apple Watch Series 7 should largely follow those of the predecessor.
At least the pictures indicate that existing wristbands of previous Apple Watch generations can still be used. Apple is expected to officially unveil the new smartwatch and the new iPhone 13 generation on September 14.
