The next Apple Watch will have a thinner display and a bigger battery

According to a report out of South Korea, Apple will be forgoing any external changes with the next Apple Watch in favor of hardware upgrades, most notably a bigger battery. Apparently, the company is working with both LG and Samsung to produce a thinner OLED display which would have the benefit of allowing Apple to fit a larger battery in its next smartwatch. 

Apple’s second-generation Watch is unlikely to see any external changes, a Thursday morning report from South Korea suggests, with the company instead focusing on tightening up internal components in order to fit a larger battery. Apple is reportedly working with South Korean firms LG and Samsung to produce thinner OLED displays for its Watch revamp — in contravention of previous indications — which would allow the device to accommodate a more capacious battery. The rumor is circulating among suppliers in LG and Samsung’s native South Korea and was first noted by GforGames. The external design of the so-called “Apple Watch 2” is expected to remain largely unaltered. No other internal component changes have been rumored, though one unlikely report did suggest that Apple may choose to add a FaceTime camera for video calling purposes.
