Resolution of the Apple Watch Series 4 will increase by more than 20% compared with Series 3.
Last week it became known that another presentation of new Apple devices will take place on September 12 (the nearest environment). Edition 9to5Mac managed to receive marketing materials associated with your Apple Watch Series 4, which depicts a new dial.
“Most likely, we know the likely display resolution 42-mm versions of the watch. Comparing data from the last beta watchOS 5, we came to the conclusion that the clock’s resolution will be 384×480. For comparison, the 42 mm Apple Watch Series 3 has a resolution of 312×390. To achieve higher resolution, Apple has cut edges and slightly increased the size of the display. The new device is likely to increase the PPI (pixels per inch pixel density — ed), which also affects the resolution.”
In 9to5Mac suggest that PPI new hours will be about 345. In Apple Watch the current generation, the figure is approximately 302-mind.
Application developers will have to adjust to the new size of the clock display, as not all programs will automatically work correctly with enhanced resolution. Most likely, Apple will present the corresponding documentation in the application immediately after the WWDC presentation.
Of course, Apple will release a new series of dials designed for watches with enhanced resolution.
