We’ve heard rumors that the upcoming Apple Watch Series 7 is expected to have a bigger display. Rumor has it that the display size will be increased from 40mm to 41mm for the smaller model and from 44mm to 45mm for the larger model, and now a new report from Bloomberg has “confirmed” it.
However, the report sheds additional light and gives us a little more detail. According to Bloomberg, the bump in size relates to the vertical dimensions of the watch. The actual viewable display itself will see a much larger increase, with the display on the new 45mm model being raised from 1.78 inches to 1.9 inches, representing a 16% increase in display size.
Apple is also likely to give the new display a new resolution, with a resolution of 398 × 484 instead of 368 × 448 on the previous model. Bloomberg’s report also confirms previous claims about the introduction of new watch faces. These include a “Modular Max” dial, a “Continuum” dial, and a world time dial that allow users to see all 24 time zones at the same time.
That being said, it should be noted that a recent report suggests that Apple Watch production may have stalled. We are still unclear whether this means the watch will be delayed or whether it will be announced later this month but released later, so we’ll have to wait and see.
