After the appearance of watchOS 4, the Apple Watch 3 began to look a bit more curious. Cupertino-based company is said to give up OLED display technology used in Apple Watch and Apple Watch 2 in its new smart watch. It is claimed that micro-LED technology will replace OLED.
Micro-LED is more efficient than OLED in energy consumption. In addition; Size reduction, improved color gamut, increased resolution and better brightness levels are among the promises of the micro-LED display.
The news that Apple is working on micro-LED technology has come of age in 2015. If switching to micro-LED technology takes place, the company will not have to steal Samsung’s door from key competitors for intelligent clock displays.
Sources indicate that Apple is working very hard to bring the micro-LED technology into production on devices. It is also among the information that the company wants to put on the market of micro-LED display products next year at worst. According to Nikkei, Apple is currently the only company with the ability to implement micro-LED technology on a large scale.
Apple is expected to announce its new smart watch with micro-LED display in the fall. Micro-LED technology is expected to take some time to develop into phones.
