Apple Watch Series 7 reportedly has flat sides and bigger screens

According to Mark Gurman, Bloomberg's Power On newsletter, the upcoming Apple Watch will have a new hardware design. Gurman claims that the Apple Watch Series 7 will feature a flat display and sharp edges. This is in keeping with Apple's ongoing quest to flatten every product in its range.
The display will be slightly larger than the Series 6 panels, and the cases will be slightly larger than before. Each model will get a 1mm increase in size to 41mm and 45mm. Last week's leaked images suggested that the 41mm and 45mm sizes would be maintained. Gurman claims Apple will add multiple watch faces to maximize the extra screen space.

Gurman claims that the Series 7 will have a faster processor than its predecessor. The Series 7 will not receive any major health-related upgrades, but Apple could include a body temperature sensor in the next model.

The Series 7's updated design would keep the Apple Watch's three-year-cycle of major hardware refreshes. Apple's first and only major case redesign was in the Series 4. The Apple Watch's basic design has remained the same through the Series 6. New materials and finishes have been added, but that appearance has not changed.

Apple typically announces new watches in September so it is possible that a Series 7 reveal will be imminent. The Series 6 and SE watches made headlines at Apple's September event last year, as the iPhone 12 unveiling was moved back to October.
