Forget the Apple Watch 9, we’re already hearing about the Apple Watch X
Even though the Apple Watch 9 is expected to be released in September, there is already information regarding its successor, the Apple Watch X, with the headline that it will reportedly get bigger.
According to MacRumors (opens in new tab), David Hsieh, an analyst at technology research firm Omdia (opens in new tab), the Apple Watch X will be offered in 1.89-inch and 2.04-inch sizes. This is larger than the Apple Watch 8’s 1.69-inch and 1.9-inch displays.
Although not unexpected, the name is intriguing as well because it would align the branding with the 2017 iPhone X. In keeping with tradition, the X in this instance would be the Roman numeral for 10.
Additionally, Hsieh provides details on the Apple Watch SE 3, which will reportedly debut in 2024 alongside the Apple Watch X and will have its own size increase. The screen size will reportedly be larger than 1.57 inches and 1.78 inches, making it comparable to the Apple Watch 8. The Apple Watch 9 reportedly offers the same range of screen sizes as the Apple Watch 8, so there won’t be any size increases there.
Last but not least, Hsieh asserts that the Apple Watch Ultra 2 would debut in 2024 with a 2.13-inch screen, which would likewise be an increase in size and is consistent with other rumors.
The resolution will reportedly be either 540 x 440 or 556 x 452, according to Hsieh, which results in a pixel density of about 325 pixels per inch.
For comparison, the current Apple Watch Ultra has a 1.92-inch screen with a resolution of 502 x 410 and a pixel density of 338.
