Report: Apple’s iWatch to Sport 2.5-inch Screen – Production to Begin in July

A report from Reuters today says Taiwan’s Quanta Computer Inc will start mass production of Apple Inc’s “iWatch” in July. Quoting the ever popular “source familiar with the matter,” the report goes on to say the watch’s display will be a slightly rectangular 2.5-inches, and will boast wireless charging capabilities.

9to5Mac notes the alleged screen size is the same as the screen on the current-generation iPod nano, while the earlier rumored size is the same as the screen on the watch-like 6th-generation iPod nano, as seen below.

Reuters goes on to say the watch face will protrude slightly, creating an arched shape, and will feature a touch interface.

The source said Apple expects to ship 50 million units within the first year of release. The source, and “another person familiar with the matter,” both indicate the wearable device’s launch will come as early as October.

Still another source told Reuters the LG Display Co Ltd is the exclusive supplier of the screen for the gadget’s initial batch of production, while two other sources say the device will also contain a sensor to monitor the user’s pulse rate. Singapore-based imaging and sensor maker Heptagon is on the supplier list for that piece of the puzzle.

Reuters reports that all companies allegedly involved in the iWatch’s manufacturer, Apple, Quanta, LG Display and Heptagon all declined to comment.

Of course, until an “iWatch” is officially announced by Apple, all of the above is speculation, and should be taken as such. (Doctors have recommended I stop taking rumors with a grain of salt, due to my high blood pressure.-Ed.)
