Thanks to the Eurasian Economic Commission we now know that Apple is currently working on its next generation of smartwatches – six of the Apple Watch Series 4 models have been registered with the following numbers: A1977, A1978, A1975, A1976, A2007, A2008.
It seems like, even though Apple will increase the screen size by 15% – with diagonals of 1.57 inches and 1.78 inches – they will maintain the two watch sizes of 38mm and 42mm, respectively. Apple seems bent on shrinking the bezels in order to maximise the screen area without compromising on the size of the watches, which is great, since a lot of the complaints about smartwatches in general, is the fact they sometimes prove to be too bulky to be worn anywhere except the gym.
The watches will run on WatchOS out of the box, though the software is, as this time, still in the preview stage. They will come with a walkie-talkie mode, a Siri watchface, podcasts, new exercise modes, a challenge mode and a few other bits and bobs.
The Series 3 was unveiled in September of last year, so we should expect to see some invites in the next couple of weeks, if Apple decides to still keep tradition with its September releases.
