Apple Watch Series 4 Front Panel Depicted in Alleged Leaked Image

With anticipation mounting ahead of Apple’s imminent product
announcements later today,
Slashleaks
has shared an image of an alleged front panel
belonging to the upcoming Apple Watch Series 4, which a leak this
morning revealed will come in 40mm
and 44mm sizes
.


Although it’s hard to verify from the image alone, we do expect
the new model to feature a display that’s 15 percent larger
than the one on the Apple Watch Series 3, a change implemented
through a reduction in the size of the bezels of the device.

The larger display sizes will provide more room on the screen
for apps and allow more space for watch faces. Apple is
expected to introduce at least one new watch face with support
for up to nine complications.

The resolution of the new 40mm Apple Watch is still unknown,
but
data found within a beta version of watchOS
5 suggests the
44mm version will feature a resolution of 384×480, up from
312×390 in the current 42mm Apple Watch models.

Apple analyst
Ming-Chi Kuo
believes all Series 4 models will feature rear
case ceramic, and potentially come with electrocardiography
(ECG/EKG) functionality.

A leaked
marketing image
suggests the Apple Watch Series 4 will look
similar to the Series 3, with no major design changes. As far
as we know, that should ensure Apple Watch Series 4 models will
continue to be compatible with existing Apple Watch bands.

Apple’s “Gather
Round
” event will kick off today at 10:00 a.m. Pacific
Time, with Apple planning to live stream the product unveiling
on its event website and through the Events app on the Apple
TV.

For those unable to watch, MacRumors will have live coverage
both here on MacRumors.com and on our MacRumorsLive Twitter
account, along with continuing coverage throughout the rest of
September.
