You may have put an Apple Watch on your Christmas list but there could be a new model out as soon as June, according to reports.
An Apple supplier in Taiwan made the statement as part of its latest earnings call suggesting we are just seven months from the release of the next model.
It bolsters other claims that the next-generation device could have a larger battery as well as front-facing camera, among other improved features.
If the rumour is true, the modified device will launch just over a year since the first.
A statement in Taiwanese manufacturer Quanta’s earnings call by chairman Barry Lam said a new Apple Watch will be ready for sale by the end of the second quarter next year, DigiTimes reported.
Quanta Chairman Barry Lam has reportedly revealed that the company is working on the next generation Apple Watch.
Lam added that the smartwatch market is expected to grow and mature, and that the next generation Apple Watch will perform better than the original.
