A larger 1.99-inch display is expected for the upcoming Apple Watch Series 8, which is expected to be unveiled in September alongside the company’s next round of iPhones and watches.

It was reported by MacRumors in October of last year that analyst Ross Young had predicted that the Apple Watch Series 8 would have three different display sizes.

The Apple Watch’s new display size will be 1.99-inches diagonally, according to a response to a question about the rumor.

This year’s “high-end” 2-inch Apple Watch will be manufactured by Luxshare as the “exclusive supplier,” analyst Jeff Pu wrote in a note to investors viewed by MacRumors.

In the report, it appears that Pu just rounded the 1.99-inch display size supplied by Young to the nearest whole inch.

When compared to the 1.691-inch display found on the 41mm Apple Watch Series 7 and the 1.901-inch display found on the 45mm Apple Watch Series 7, an Apple Watch with a display size of 1.99 inches (or 1.99 inches diagonally) offers a larger viewing area.

The larger display size would offer an additional 0.089-inches of diagonal space over the 45mm Apple Watch Series 7, which is approximately a 5% increase in diagonal space.

The Apple Watch Series 8 is rumored to have flat edges, which could explain the slightly larger display size on the device.

At the beginning of this year, a leaker who goes by the name “ShrimpApplePro” and who correctly predicted that the Apple Watch Series 7 would have a rounded appearance like the Apple Watch Series 6, also claimed that Apple was working on a “flat front glass display” for the Apple Watch Series 8.

According to a new story, the next Apple Watch will ask you to use a thermometer if it detects a rise in your core body temperature.

However, this health tracking capability will be absent from the future Apple Watch SE, which is expected to be released at a lower price point.
