If this actually turns out to be true, then users will no longer be required to connect their iPhone devices with the smartwatches. Instead, the Apple Watch 3 will consist of a SIM card slot, and users will be able to make and receive calls independently. As far as the specifications of the upcoming smartwatch are concerned, the device is expected to feature a micro #Led Display this time.

Specs and features of the watch

As Apple is adapting the LED display technology for its iPhone 8; the company is also expected to carry out the same deed with its smartwatch as well. While the size of the smartwatch hasn’t been made official yet, rumors suggest that it might feature a 1.65-inch display with 390 x 312 pixels resolution. Apple Watch 3 might not carry any major design overhauls, but speculations suggest that the device might sport a modular design, further protected by either a platinum or liquid-metal case.
