According to Apple analyst Brian White of Drexel Hamilton, the second-gen Apple Watch model could debut sooner than expected.
While some rumors had suggested the Apple Watch 2 could launch alongside the iPhone 7 in September this year, White believes Apple will unveil the smartwatch at WWDC in June.
The analyst believes the second-gen Apple Watch will be 20-40% thinner than the current model, which could possibly mean that the newer model may not be any better than the current model in terms of battery life.
The first-gen Apple Watch has been a great success for the Cupertino firm, with Q4 2015 sales estimated to be 5.1 million. Apple currently enjoys a significant lead over its nearest rival in the smartwatch market, so the second-gen model definitely needs to be very impressive in order to help Apple maintain that lead over its rivals.
