Apple is rumored to add new display technology, One Glass Solution(OGS) replacing Glass (G/G) technology in next generation Apple Watch. As per the DigiTimes report, sourced from Apple supplier TPK Holding, the company is planning to replace current technology in the upcoming Apple Watch 2.
DigiTimes a popular Taiwan-based website that shares rumors gleaned from Apple’s Asian supply chains. The publication also reports OGS will also wipe out the one layer of glass from the previous model(G/G), it had two chunks of glasses, which will be replaced over the layer with thinner material. This will slightly increase a small amount of internal space possibly giving space for enhanced display.
TPK admit that there are some technical issues regarding with OGS productions, which may take down the rates for touch panels.
“The large loss for the second quarter was mainly because touch panel orders for iPhones continued to decrease, and Apple will change touch panel technology from G/G to OGS (one glass solution) in the new Apple Watch to be launched in the second half of 2016, TPK said.”
If the report is to be taken in consideration, the second generation Apple Watch will be light-weighted compared to the current model. Apple Watch 2 over casted by news related with its updated design, cellular connectivity, flash processor and emended battery and all.
If we talk about the supposed truth, it may launch in the September 2016, in company with the new iPhone and iPhone 7 Plus.
