New leaks on the Apple iWatch!
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and other reports are saying that we’ll be seeing the Apple iWatch in two days with sales commencing in 2015. The analyst is also claiming that the device will sport a rectangular design with 8 GB of internal storage with 512MB LPDDR3. The wristwatch will be available in two screen sizes of 1.3 and 1.5-inches in order to accommodate different wrist sizes. It is also reported that Apple may use between two to four different casing materials, with aluminum and gold as two likely options.
According to The Information, don’t expect much from the Apple iWatch’s battery life. It seems Apple has been struggling to meet expectations when it comes to this area of the device. Back in March 2013, iWatch prototypes were only seeing one or two days of battery life. Apple has tried different charging technologies to improve this including solar charging and motion charging. The company ended up opting for wireless charging but we’re not quite sure if this solved the battery life problem.
The New York Times has some leaks as well but regarding the display of the wearable device. It suggests that the Apple iWatch will have a flexible display. The iWatch according the NY Times will come in two different sizes and focus on health and fitness as well as mobile computing tasks. The device will also enable users to make purchases via NFC support. Rumors also suggest that the device will feature an array of sensors to track heart rates as well as blood pressure. This is done through Apple’s new platform HealthKit.
The gadget is set to be unveiled in two days time. As the rumor mill continues, we are getting more deflated with the underwhelming comments about what to expect. We’re hoping that we see more than what reports have been saying.
