Apple’s alleged smartwatch will enter mass production in November, according to the popular analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. It has to be noted that Ming has provided relatively accurate information on the future Apple products in the past and his track record is almost impeccable.
The KGI Securities analyst has also made a speculation on what the upcoming ‘iWatch’ may feature. He expects the device to sport a flexible AMOLED display, sapphire coated display cover, higher waterproof standards and a new system-on-a chip component.
Kuo’s previous estimate had indicated that the product would enter mass production in September, but the analyst has revised his assessment. “We have pushed back our estimated time of iWatch mass production from late-September to mid/late November. We also lower our forecast of iWatch 2014 shipments by 40% to 3mn units”.
Apple’s much anticipated wearable is expected to include advanced mapping functions, integrate deeply with iOS 8 operating system and its HealthKit software. It’s rumored that the device will be announced in the month of October and launch by the holiday season.
