The new Apple Watch Series 8 that the company could announce in the coming weeks, it might not arrive with a new look, despite the fact that some rumors claimed that it would have flat frames similar to those of the iPhone, as well as a completely smooth screen; without the slight curvature in the glass that the current models include. ShrimpAppleProa Twitter user who leaks information about upcoming Apple products, ensures that the new model will look the same as its predecessor: the Series 7.
The Twitter user assures that there will be no improvements in the design of the Apple Watch Series 8. Therefore, we expect to see exactly the same look as the Series 7. This, let us remember, improved slightly by reducing the front bezels, something that has allowed the company to bet on a larger screen without practically sacrificing size.
The Apple Watch Series 8 will also come in two finishes: aluminum, with colors Midnight (black), Starlight (white), Silver and Red; Y steel, available in Silver and Graphite tones. The titanium version, therefore, could be exclusive to the Pro variant. According to rumors, Apple would keep the case sizes in its standard versions. They are, specifically, 41 mm for the smallest variant, and 45 for the largest version.
Rumors predicted an Apple Watch Series 8 with flat frames
Apple, therefore, seems to have left behind the idea of including flat frames in its watch, as suggested by the youtuber Y leaker Jon Prosser in 2021, months before the company announced the Apple Watch Series 7. Prosser, remember, revealed that the aforementioned model could come with a redesign, but Apple finally kept the look of its predecessor. Subsequently, the youtuber suggested that the company could have delayed the appearance until the Series 8. But, again, it seems that it will not be so.
The company, on the other hand, could announce a Pro version of the upcoming Apple Watch Series 8. This model, according to Mark Gurman, of Bloomberg, would be intended for users who perform extreme sports, as it would offer extra resistance thanks to the titanium case, as well as a larger screen. However, it is unknown if the Apple Watch Series 8 Pro will maintain the Series 8 design or if, instead, it will bet on a different aesthetic.
Both the Apple Watch Series 8 and the Pro model are expected to are announced during the month of September, along with the iPhone 14. Their prices, as well as their marketing date, are still unknown.
