Apple Watch Series 4 resolution likely 384×480, apps capable of showing much more content
Last week, after Apple announced its September event for next Wednesday, we got our hands on some marketing images of the new iPhone Xs and the new Apple Watch Series 4. The most interesting aspect of the marketing image for Apple Watch Series 4 is probably a new watch face they used for the picture, which has at least 9 different complications (depending on what you count as a complication).
Today, we’ve been able to figure out the probable screen resolution for the 42mm version of this new device. We believe, from looking at some information found on the latest watchOS 5 beta, that the resolution will be 384×480. For comparison, the resolution on the current 42mm Apple Watch Series 3 is 312×390. Apple is going to achieve this significantly higher resolution by reducing the size of the bezels and making the screen a little bit larger. This new device will also probably feature a higher PPI, which also contributes to the higher resolution.
