Apple Watch Series 7 clones are on sale in China even before official launch: Report
The Apple Watch Series 7’s look is similar to previously leaked CAD images of the next-generation Apple Watch.
NEW DELHI — Apple is believed to be planning the release of a new Apple Watch this year, and pictures purporting to be counterfeits of the impending Watch Series 7 units have surfaced online, providing a closer look at the device’s projected overhaul.
Many media reports also claimed that the clones of new Apple Watch Series 7 were already on sale in China, even when the watch has not been officially launched by the company.
The images were posted by Twitter user @MajinBuOfficial and show the knock-off Watch Series 7 in three different colours: space grey, silver, and space black.
Apple Watch Series 7 looks similar to leaked CAD images
The Watch Series 7’s look is similar to previously leaked CAD images of the next-generation Apple Watch. The Apple Watch is anticipated to have a square edge, similar to the iPhone 12 series, iPad Air, iPad Pro, and 24-inch iMac.
In China, these Apple Watch Series 7 knockoffs will cost roughly $60, according to Majin Bu.
The Apple Watch Series 7 is expected to come in larger case sizes of 41mm and 45mm, replacing the 40mm and 44mm versions available since the Apple Watch Series 4. Smaller bezels and a flat-edged design are predicted on the upcoming Apple Watch, which would naturally allow for a somewhat larger display surface area.
Larger battery and downsized module
The Apple Watch Series 7 is likely to have a smaller “S7” chip, which will allow for a larger battery and other components.
ASE Technology, a Taiwanese company, will manufacture this new chipset. ASE Technology announced on its website that its double-sided technology will enable module downsizing.
The Cupertino-based tech company also plans to implement a new lamination method that will narrow the gap between the display and the cover glass, resulting in a slightly thicker overall Watch chassis.
New watch faces to enhance the looks
It is pertinent to mention here that more new watch faces on the Apple Watch are also expected to provide an all-new experience to the users. The watch faces are expected to be more customizable, powerful, and discoverable than ever before with watchOS 7.
One app may now offer a variety of complications, allowing users to build the perfect watch face for any situation. Also, the option to obtain the swell size, water temperature, and wind speed from a single app is there for the surfers.
