Shared by 91Mobiles and apparently obtained from ‘trade sources’, these renders present flat sides rather than the rounded sides discovered on the Apple Watch 6. That’s an identical change to what we’ve seen the iPhone vary undergo within the transfer from the iPhone 11 to the iPhone 12.
Past that, the renders present larger speaker grilles however an in any other case comparable design to the Apple Watch 6. In response to the sources of those photos, the Apple Watch 7 will are available a 44mm measurement with a 1.8-inch display screen, which can also be kind of a match for the Apple Watch 6. Technically that has a 1.78-inch show, however they may effectively be rounding up right here.
What does apparently differ barely, aside from the form and audio system, is the size, with the 44mm Apple Watch 7 stated to be 44 x 38 x 9mm, whereas the Apple Watch 6 in that measurement is 44 x 38 x 10.4mm. So the upcoming mannequin ought to be barely slimmer if that is proper.
There’s no point out right here of different sizes, however we’d totally count on Apple to launch one other mannequin, most likely a 40mm one. And whereas we’d take this leak with a pinch of salt, the photographs do line up with a earlier leak, so there’s a great likelihood that is the design we’ll see.
Evaluation: Apple is all-in on flat sides
We suspect this Apple Watch 7 design is kind of correct not solely as a result of it’s been leaked a number of instances, however as a result of it will make sense for the wearable to have flat edges.
In addition to the iPhone 12 vary having them, current iPad Execs and the iPad Air 4 (2020) have additionally had them, and leaks recommend the iPhone 13 vary will too.
So it appears Apple is unifying all of its cellular and wearable merchandise to have a flat-edged design, and we’d count on any holdouts to modify to this earlier than lengthy.
With this modification being comparatively current, Apple most likely gained’t be in a rush to regulate the perimeters once more, so it may very well be some time earlier than we see one other premium Apple product with rounded edges.
