Apple Is Concerned with the Idea of a Round Smartwatch

The Motorola Moto 360 2 is also the ASUS ZenWatch 3 and the Samsung Gear S3 anyway – they are all smartwatches with a round display. A round screen in the intelligent timepieces has not only become a trend but seems to be a matter of course for many manufacturers. But one not: Apple has also missed its currently almost sold out Apple Watch Series 2 again a square display. Should it change in the future and the group from Cupertino swim with the current?

Display:

There is a specific reason for this presumption. As is currently public, Apple filed two patent applications at the US Patent and Trademark Office, which deal with a round screen. You have received the working title “Electronic device with a rounded display at the corners”. From this it can be seen that the Californians in January of this year have worked on exactly this project.

The first patent deals specifically with the screen and how this should be built in a round shape. For this purpose, bent control elements have been placed, which in their entirety provide the shape of a ring. An edge encloses the whole. The second document then deals with the corresponding driver technology.

Whether the electronics giant from Cupertino actually a round successor of the Apple Watch Series 2 in the hindquarters ready or whether the plans are discarded again – that betrayed the already secret company of course not. Rumors about a round display already existed in May this year. The fact is that a patent application alone is no guarantee that they will be implemented. Often, Apple secures the patents only, without immediately making use of it.

Perhaps the popular brand, however, actually bends to the general development. The worst competitor Samsung has already done this step in the autumn 2015 with the previous model of the Gear S3. Another thought could be that the next Apple Smartwatch is available in a square as well as a round version. Of course, all this is merely a coffee set – what the patents really do, the group knows only by itself. But what is quite clear: At least with the idea of ​​bringing a round Apple Watch to the market, the company has intensively discussed.
