It will be a while longer until Apple decides to unveil the latest generation of its smartwatch series, which usually falls towards the end of the year. However, thanks to a series of renders released by leakster John Prosser and concept artist Ian Zelbo (aka @Rendersbyian), we may have a good look at the design of the upcoming Apple Watch Series 7.
Based on the images provided, the new generation of the watch series is shown to sport a flat edge design – similar to those featured on the current generation iPhones and iPads. If proven accurate, this alleged redesign of the Apple Watch would corroborate with analyst Ming-Chi Kuo’s report last year which suggested the company’s plan of going for a consistent streamlined look across all of its products.
Other than that, it is suggested that the supposed redesign retains the series’ iconic Digital Crown feature on the right hand side of the device, together with power button positioned below it. The renders released by Prosser and Zelbo also revealed several possible colour options for the new Apple Watch and Solo Loop Straps which includes red, blue, green, white, and black. It’s worth noting that Kuo’s aforementioned report predicts Apple may introduce a new colour for the Series 7 as well.
Prosser did not share any information in terms of specifications for the new wearable. However, earlier rumours suggest that Apple may introduce a new optical sensor that is capable of monitoring blood sugar levels, among other possible hardware improvements.
As usual, whether this leak is accurate or not remains to be seen. That being said, Prosser’s track record when it comes to insight regarding new Apple products are usually a mix of hits and misses. Needless to say, we highly advise our readers to take allegedly leaked information such as these with a healthy dose of salt.
