So says one of the more accurate Apple analysts, Ming-Chi Kuo. Neil Hughes dishes the deal.
Kuo said he expects at least one, but as many as three, new casings to go into production in the fourth quarter of calendar 2015. Those new models, he said, could debut as soon as this fall.
How about a round case to match the rectangular Apple Watch case, with with the same set of watch bands (already very complicated)?
The rumor comes on the heels of a separate report which indicated that Apple experimented with platinum casings for the Apple Watch. Platinum watches can often sell for triple the price of gold ones, which would make such a model even more premium than the $10,000-and-up Apple Watch Edition announced this week.
Uh huh. Sure. And why not white gold, titanium, ceramic, carbon fiber, or whatever else watches are made of these days. That would make Apple Watch an inventory nightmare. Ming-Chi Kuo’s track record for predictions is better than most.
