The current Watch Ultra features around a 1.93-inch screen, therefore, the 2024 model is likely to have nearly a 10 percent larger display.

The new Ultra is also likely to feature microLED display technology, which will offer higher brightness, decreased power consumption and improved contrast ratio as compared to the current models with OLED displays. According to the Taiwanese research firm, TrendForce, the microLED technology could allow Apple to offer future products with “game-changing product innovations,” which will range from foldable screen devices to rollable-screen iPhone to fully transparent Augmented Reality (AR) glasses.

The iPhone maker’s transition to the technology might take many years to be completed as the microLED display production costs are currently high, the report said. Apple is still in the process of transitioning to OLED displays, so microLED technology will take more time. And the Apple Watch Ultra with the microLED display may not arrive before 2024, according to the DigiTimes report.

Last month, Pu had also said that he expects Apple Watch sales to drop in 2023 due to “lack of significant spec upgrade”.
