A report on Wednesday claims Foxconn and Compal Electronics have already scored orders to assemble the 2020 models of the Apple Watch. (Which would be called the “Apple Watch Series 6” if Apple continues its current naming scheme.)
The DigiTimes report also says that China-based Luxshare Precision will likely do the assembly duties for older Apple Watch models.
The report comes on the heels of another DigiTimes report that claimed Quanta Computer will likely drop its assembly of the Apple Watch in 2020 due to alleged concerns over the profitability of the operation. Quanta has been the primary Apple Watch assembly partner since 2015.
The report is just the latest in a series of recent reports concerning the future of the Apple Watch and its possible future features.
July saw a report saying 2020 will be the year the Watch’s display will make the switch from OLED to a MicroLED display, although no manufacturer for the new display had been named.
Other reports have indicated Apple is working on a method for non-invasive measurement of blood glucose levels with a future model of the Apple Watch, using optical sensors. In other news, Bloomberg has reported the sleep tracking on the Watch could be released as early as 2020.
