Apple looks set to double down on its smartwatch offering with the next version of the Apple Watch, according to one expert.
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has a history of predicting what Apple will produce and this time he says the company will reveal two versions of the Apple Watch 3.
The first will be a standard upgrade of the current model while the second will the same but equipped with 4G connectivity – meaning it won’t have to be paired with an iPhone to work.
Kuo says that outwardly the design of the wearable won’t change. But not being tethered to an iPhone will mean wearers can make and answer calls or receive notifications without having to bring it along with them.
Both the 4G and non-4G version of the Apple Watch 3 are expected to come in two sizes – 38mm and 42mm.
It’s widely believed the Apple Watch 3 will be revealed alongside the iPhone 7s and iPhone 8 at an Apple event in September.
