Ever since its launch in 2015, the Apple Watch has slowly risen to become the world's most popular smartwatch with seamless connectivity on Apple devices and premium features. September is right around the corner, which means it's time for the new iPhone models, alongside the next generation of the Apple Watch. However, after the success of the Apple Watch Series 4, it would be tough to follow up with a substantial upgrade this year.
Apple Watch Series 5, which is what it will most likely be called, is coming next month and some of the details of the smartwatch have been leaked online by Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. While the previous version brought a significant feature - ECG - to the Apple Watch range, this one is expected to be a minor upgrade with minimal cosmetic changes.
What's new is that the Apple Watch Series 5 will sport a new Japan Display OLED panel, which is expected to improve the smartwatch's battery life and also improve viewing quality for users.
Other than that, reports suggest that we could see two new models with titanium and ceramic bodies, both in the 44mm wrist strap options. The new models would help enhance the Apple Watch's image as a luxury timepiece, despite the outdated design that has seen minimal changes since launch 4 years ago.
While none of the leaks suggest that this could be named the Apple Watch Series 5, the timeline of Apple's launch cycle makes it pretty obvious. The chances of this being an Apple Watch Series 4 refresh are extremely low.
