A key feature for the rumored Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iWatch could be a flexible display. Chosun Ilbo explained that the iWatch could be made from a flexible OLED screen, which can be bent.
Apple could feature three versions of the iWatch
It’s also reported that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) could feature three versions of the iWatch with different sized screens. Sources claim the prototype for the 1.5 inch version will be made, with the 1.3 inch version and 1.4 inch versions also be a part of the lineup.
Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) recently released their smartwatch and now the pressure is on for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) to release their version of the watch. Of course, the Cupertino-based tech giant is keeping quiet on such matters. TechRadar (a popular tech website from the United Kingdom) explained, “A prototype of the 1.5-inch has already been made,” the source said directly, though there wasn’t any of the more interesting details like when we may see it, or more importantly, whether it will glow in the dark. Still, if this is true, then that means there’s an ACTUAL iWatch out there somewhere right now—maybe even more than one. We’re expecting Apple to announce the iWatch next year, and word is that it’s still in the prototype stage reinforces this belief.
The smartwatch trend has yet to catch on
Smartwatches work in conjunction with smartphones. These gadgets make it easier to use the phone without having to take it out of your pocket or purse all the time. Smartwatches aren’t meant to replace phones. The smartwatch trend has yet to catch on, but the iWatch could change all of that. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is one company that takes the most mundane gadgets and turns them into something magical. The brand completely revolutionized the mobile market with the iPhone and iPad. It’s likely they will have the same effect with the iWatch. Almost everyone wants an iPhone and/or iPad. It won’t be long until they want the iWatch next.
