New Apple Watch Series 7 CAD renders showcase the boxy design of the upcoming wearable
Over the course of six generations, the Apple Watch has not received a single significant overhaul. Even though the Apple Watch Series 4 was equipped with a larger display than previous generations, the overall design with rounded edges and a curved frame has remained the same since the release of the original Apple Watch in 2015. This will supposedly change with the upcoming Apple Watch Series 7, which is expected to be revealed alongside the iPhone 13 on September 14.
91mobiles has now released new CAD-based renders that correspond to the design cues which were first predicted by Jon Prosser back in May. As expected, Apple's new smartwatch will feature a bigger 1.8-inch display, flat edges, smaller bezels and a boxy design which is very similar to that of the iPhone 12 and the iPad Pro. The placement of the buttons and the digital crown on the other hand appears to be unchanged, as are the sensors on the back of the smartwatch.
More noticeable are the two slits on the left side of the case, which could indicate that the Apple Watch Series 7 will receive upgraded speakers. The CAD renders also reveal that Apple's new wearable will be thinner than its predecessor, measuring only 9mm in thickness for the 44mm model, which is 1.7mm slimmer than the Series 6 (from US$319 on Amazon).
