Compal reportedly enters Apple Watch supply chain

While the Apple Watch Series 2 addressed some features that some felt were missing in the original, we're still not sure if you could call the Apple Watch the ideal smartwatch. It can be noted that last year's Apple Watch Series 2 was launched alongside the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in September, so the tech giant could be keeping the same timeline for its next releases.

Supply chain sources speaking with DigiTimes say Compal Electronics will start shipping Apple Watch in the second half of 2017, which is a good indicator that we'll see the updated smartwatch in the fall.

However, "Apple Watch Series 3" is not Compal's responsibility but they will focus mainly on manufacturing a portion of the second-generation Apple Watch and Quanta Computer.

Little else has been revealed about Apple's plans. On the Huawei Watch 2, this slashed the battery life from two days to a day and a half, for instance.

He suggests this new iteration of the Apple Watch will launch later this year and come with SIM card support, and "is therefore likely" to support LTE. Despite surge in making cost, Apple has reportedly made a decision to not increase the selling price and keep the three storage models (most likely-64GB, 128GB and 256GB-order) between $850 and $900. The upcoming next-generation Apple Watch, which is scheduled to be released in the second half, will continue to be manufactured by the Taiwan-based ODM; however, production of the existing second-generation Apple Watch will be partially given to Compal. Series 1 and Series 2 of the Apple Watch are both available in the market. The unveiling of the "Apple Watch Series 3" is said to be alongside with the "iPhone 8" in September, this year, according to BGR.
