Ceramic and Titanium Apple Watch Models hidden in watchOS 6

Speculations arise on the factor that Apple had recently been charged a fine ~$600m by Samsung for letting down the "projected targets" for OLED screen orders, so it is assumed that Apple might have failed to negotiate the same amount of leverage by the time the news has come up.

According to Kuo, Japan Display would gradually increase its proportion of OLED display orders for the Apple Watch, starting with 15-20 per cent of orders in 2019 and reaching 70-80 per cent in 2021. As the Apple Watch Series 4 has no models with either finish, this hints at a possible coating for a Series 5 model.

Ming-Chi Kuo is expecting Apple Watch Series 5 to sport OLED displays supplied by Japan Display.


Because of the Apple Watch's focus, it's likely that Apple will add some sort of health-related feature like sleep tracking.

Last year's Apple Watch Series 4 was the first significant change in body design for the wearable since its introduction in 2015, so it seems unlikely that Apple will change that this year again.

It remains to be seen if the Watch Series 5 will be unveiled its Apple's traditional launch event on September 10, which is essentially where the company launched the predecessors of the smartwatch.


Otherwise, Kuo's report doesn't provide much insight into the Apple Watch Series 5, which we haven't heard much about over the past several months.

As we also reported only a few weeks ago, meanwhile, the rumor mill is already pointing to Apple adopting MicroLED displays for its Series 6 watch models next year.
