It has long been rumored that Cupertino tech giant Apple is working on an upgraded Apple Watch that would sport a thinner display and a larger battery. And just this Thursday, this rumor may have materialized according to a newly leaked video that features the different components of the upcoming Apple Watch 2.
The new leak comes from a British shop named Byte that reportedly sells Apple accessories and repair parts, and MacRumors reports that Byte’s video showcases the different components of Apple’s next wearable device.
In the leaked video (shown below) that was uploaded on YouTube, the LCD display of the Apple Watch 2 is slightly thinner than the one found on its predecessor, and it also has wider bezels along with a different layout for its screen assembly.
Apple Insider also picked up the video and found out that the Force Touch gasket of the Apple Watch 2 is different from the one its predecessor sports. The new gasket is said to come with a modified layout with the addition of a new chipset.
In terms of batteries, the Apple Watch 2 could be sporting a thicker battery pack that has a 1.28 watt-hours capacity, and this is a significant upgrade compared to the Apple Watch’s thinner battery pack with 0.94 watt-hours capacity.
This leaked video comes days after a snap of the rumored battery of the Apple Watch 2 landed on Chinese website Weibo. Despite having previous leaks to back up the rumored larger battery of the new wearable, nothing has been set in stone yet.
Apple fans would only be able to confirm the upgraded specifications of the Apple Watch 2 when the Cupertino giant finally pulls the wraps off of the device next week during the Sept. 7 event that’s primarily intended for the debut of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus smartphones.
