A new report says that this year there would come a Apple Watch with 40% less thick, but according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the Apple smartwatch apple will arrive in 2016 with “S” updated model of the first generation presented in 2014 by the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. An update “S” involves internal improvements, which sometimes are important, but keeping the design of the previous model.
Kuo says that those who are waiting for Apple to release a finer model will have to wait to 2017. The analyst thinks the company directed by Tim Cook will use the same strategy being used in the iPhone, which will be a new design every two years . It’s something that makes sense on the iPhone and seems to have more in the “most personal device” apple, since the holders of the current model will show off an updated design for longer.
Kuo has not dared to predict what developments would bring this alleged “Apple Watch-S”, but rumors of the past claimed that the new model would have a new processor that improve the performance of the watch and a camera that would allow video calls directly from the wrist .
Kuo also wrote on sales watch apple in 2016, ensuring that only 7.5 million Apple Watches will be sold throughout this year because the market for wearable devices is still very immature. The analyst believes that Apple 10.6 million were sold in 2015 Watches, so we are talking about a decline in sales of approximately 30% in 2016.
When the Apple Watch-S will be released? Kuo also has dared to say when we will have new Apple Watch available, but the latest rumors say that will be presented at WWDC to be held sometime in June. At this point, now my turn to say that analyst and is likely to reach a new Apple Watch with the same design this year, but by no means be called “Apple Watch S” or something. I find it easier to launch an Apple Watch 2 with small visible changes that an Apple Watch S directly because his name is not very well face marketing. Nor do I think that an event for developers is the best time to introduce a new device, but not the first time I take the opportunity to do so. In any case, there is little left to leave doubts and know if served as Ming Chi Kuo as best Apple analyst Apple.
