Apple Watch 4 Expected To Have 15 Percent Larger Display

By Nitish Singh / July 12, 2018

The Series 4 Apple Watch is slated for release later this year, and reports are suggesting that the device will be 15 percent larger over the previous generations. It is going to be the first redesign the wearable will see three years after its launch. While the Series 3 watch offers a 39.5mm display, the Series 4 watch will measure 45.2mm making it 15 percent larger than its predecessors.

The bigger displays on the upcoming smartwatch could allow the UI to feel less claustrophobic and gesture-based controls are expected for easier controls. WatchOS 5 was announced earlier this year, and it is expected to come out of the box with the new Apple Watches. The Force Touch display is expected to come with some improvements, and HTML content support will make web browsing on the wearable display much easier.

Some industry sources also claim that OLED displays may not make it into the new Apple Watch Series 4, and the Cupertino company may choose to opt-in for micro-LED screens instead which can be lighter due to low thickness. Micro-LED displays also have the added advantage of offering a much better color gamut, higher brightness, and support for larger resolutions. OLED panels, on the other hand, are battery friendly and offer superior standby time.

New sensors can be expected on the upcoming Apple Watch devices that boast health monitoring capabilities and a heart rate monitor. An EKG unit is also expected to be built into the smart wearables to monitor the heart’s electrical activity and report any irregularities. Solid state buttons are also being rumored to make it into the device.
