Apple has launched the first version of Apple Watch this year. If Apple is going to maintain a 12-month cycle for releasing a new product, then we can expect that the 2nd version of Apple Watch which is probably going to be named as simply as Apple Watch 2 is going to be released in 2016. However, there is no specific time frame when it is going to be released in 2016.
One thing for sure is that LG is still going to be the main display supplier of Apple Watch 2 as it is for the first version of Apple Watch. LG is estimated to have supplied the display for about 68 percent of all wearable devices which is shipped in the first quarter of 2015. Samsung will most probably going to join LG to supply the display part for the next generation of Apple Watch. However, the latest report suggests that Apple is considering other display manufacturer as well.
The display that LG supplied to Apple for Apple Watch is none other than the P-OLED displays or Plastic-OLED. The display technology is chosen for the wearable product as it can have thin bezels and can easily shape into different shapes even though it is made of plastic.
Prior to the release of Apple Watch 2, its OS which is simply called Apple’s WatchOS 2 will be launched soon with some improvements over the original OS. One of the improvements is to include information from third-party apps for the watch face.
