Apple is set launch its new Watch at its September 14 event, despite facing manufacturing issues during the production stage.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that Apple and its suppliers have now overcome those issues and mass production will be beginning soon, 9to5Mac reported.
The upcoming Apple Watch Series 7 may feature larger 41mm as well as 45mm case sizes, smaller bezels and a flat-edged design, which would allow for a slightly bigger surface area for the display.
The series may feature a smaller “S7” chip, potentially providing more space for a larger battery or other components.
This new chipset will be built by Taiwanese supplier ASE Technology. On its website, ASE Technology confirmed that its double-sided technology will allow for module miniaturisation.
Based on previous reports, the Apple Watch Series 7 models were expected to debut later this year, with Mark Gurman claiming that Apple has tested thinner display bezels.
The Cupertino-based tech giant is also planning to introduce a new lamination technique that reduces the gap between the display and the cover glass, and due to this the overall chassis of the watch may be slightly thicker.
