Apple is expected to debut its ‘iWatch” wearable device on Tuesday, September 9th, and KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo expects Apple will offer the wearable in at least two screen sizes, with 8GB of internal storage and a variety of color and material options, including gold. (Because “Gold is best.” – Ed.)
Apple is believed to have readied between two and four options for casing material, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo wrote in a Thursday morning note to investors, a copy of which was provided to AppleInsider. The company might also offer a gold option, matching the color unveiled with the iPhone 5s and expected to make its way to the iPad Air.
Kuo says Apple will likely not give consumers a choice of storage capacity for the “iWatch,” instead equipping all models of the wearable with 8GB of internal storage, and 512MB of built-in memory.
He expects the device to ship with rectangular screens, available in two sizes, with a 1.3-inch display as one option, and a 1.5-inch display as a second one.
The “iWatch” is expected to debut at Apple’s September 9th event, alongside the next-generation iPhone’s and possibly a new iPad. the wearable device is expected to boast numerous health and fitness sensors.
Although the device is expected to debut on September 9th, Kuo believes that “both software and hardware design challenges” will contribute to production delays that could push availability back to 2015.
Apple’s event at the Flint Center in Cupertino, CA, will kick off at 10AM Pacific, 1PM Eastern Time. As usual, MacTrast will be covering the event as it happens. Be there, or be square.
