According to fresh intel coming from an Apple supplier, it seems that Tim Cook & Co. are already working on a next-generation Apple Watch model.
The smartwatch is believed to be released late in the second quarter of next year, which would be a little more than a year after the original model’s debut. Barry Lam, the chairman of Quanta Computer, the company that assembles the Apple Watch, said during an investor meeting that the Apple Watch 2 is already being developed.
The Apple Watch 2 is said to ship in small quantities near the end of the second quarter of 2016 and productions is said to increase by the beginning of the third quarter. The device will come with better hardware and software, following the company's strategy of incremental updates.
Previous rumors suggested that the Apple Watch 2 will have improved Wi-Fi features and a camera integrated into the top bezel for making and receiving FaceTime video calls directly from your wrist.
The second-generation Apple Watch is also believed to be a bit thinner than the first model in order to accommodate a bigger battery. As for its design, it should retain its square appearance and screen resolution.
