Apple Watch Series 5 to come in ceramic, titanium versions
Apple is expected to launch of a slew of new products on September 10 including the latest batch of iPhones and a new, upgraded Apple Watch. And thanks to some images uncovered in the latest watchOS beta, we now know that the forthcoming Apple Watch (presumably, Series 5) will arrive in ceramic and titanium cases. Here's more to know.
iHelp BR has dug into the watchOS 6 beta to find startup animations for two new 44mm models in ceramic and titanium finish. Notably, Apple has never offered a titanium case on the Apple Watch, and in the 44mm size, Apple Watch has no ceramic version. Hence, it's safe to say that these two will be the new models for the forthcoming Apple Watch.
The currently available Apple Watch Series 4 is offered in Aluminum and Stainless Steel cases and comes in two sizes of 40mm and 44mm. Hence, if Apple sticks to the existing product mix, we can also see 40mm variants of the ceramic and titanium models.
Apple Watch Series 4 features a 30% larger screen area than its predecessors and runs on a new S4 chipset which is twice as fast as the previous iteration. The smartwatch has 50% louder speakers, an all-new Digital Crown with haptic feedback, and a repositioned microphone for reduced echo and all-day battery life. Notably, it is also compatible with previous generation Watch bands.
The Apple Watch Series 4 comes with next-generation accelerometer and gyroscope that allow the device to detect hard falls, and call Emergency services after 60 seconds of inactivity. Further, an all-new electrical heart rate sensor and optical heart rate sensors can now record an ECG. There's also a Walkie-Talkie feature along with automatic workout detection and activity tracking for gyming, running, swimming and more.
