Apple is likely to release redesigned Apple Watch Series 4 models in the fall, according to a report by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. As 9to5Mac points out, updated clocks should have larger screens, improved health monitoring and longer battery life.
While Kuo is vague about some details of the redesigned clock, he says he will have a 15 percent larger screen and a "more modern form factor design." The firm says that these details, combined with the new sensors expected to expand health monitoring capabilities and a traditional decline in price with older models, will help bring Apple Watch sales to new records.
KGI expects Apple to sell 22 million to 24 million Apple Watch units in 2018, an increase of 30 percent over last year. In the long term, the firm expects Apple Watch sales to grow to 50 million units per year.
KGI has a proven track record with Apple rumors. Recently, he predicted that the recently announced low-priced Apple iPad would be compatible with Apple Pencil. If this turns out to be true, expect to hear from other sources as fall approaches. This also means that Apple Watch Series 4 could debut in the September event of Apple, when the company traditionally launches new iPhones.
