Apple Watch 8 May Bring Larger Screen Option

In 2021, Apple increased the screen ratio with the Watch Series 7. This is the main highlight of Apple’s new smart watch, which repeated the Series 6 processor, but improved loading speed and included a unique technology for internal transfer of files.

Even so, it may be that in 2022 Apple will increase the display of the accessory — at least proportionally. Insider Ross Young suggested on his Twitter profile that the company could launch a new size Apple Watch in 2022. Until then, Tim Cook has prepared the wearables in two wrist sizes: 40 or 41 mm and 44 or 45 mm.

It’s still early for predictions about Apple’s next smartwatch, but it’s worth noting that insiders brought wrong predictions about the Apple Watch Series 7. Some claimed that the device planned for this year would not be finished in time, so the company used a “ plan B”. This would reinforce the lack of new sensors, functions and even a repeat of the same 2020 clock SoC.

An eventual third size for the possible Apple Watch 8, however, would not necessarily mean a new edge optimization in the product. The display gain could be proportional to the new box size. Apple, of course, is silent on rumors and has not commented on the insider’s claim. Something that may reinforce Young’s information is the confirmation of this news by other insiders — which would only prove correct or not around September 2022.

It is worth remembering that the Apple Watch 7 has already won prices for Brazil, starting at R$ 5,299 and reaching up to R$ 11,999 in versions with a titanium case. Outside, the launch of the smartwatch removed the Series 6 from the catalog. Now Apple directly markets the new generation, the Series 3 and the Watch SE.

Apple Fitness Plus will also arrive in Brazil in 2021, increasing the possibilities for Apple watches. Remember, new iPads will also be available soon. However, what is known concrete so far is that the pre-sale of the iPhone 13 starts this Friday (15).
