Apple Watch Series 3 Rumored For Second Half Of 2017

Apple Watch could have standalone mobile connectivity

Quanta has been the sole assembler of Apple Watch's first and second-generation series since the U.S. company unveiled its smartwatch in September 2014. Additionally, the next iPhone is expected in September and with the Apple Watch being a primary accessory of the iconic smartphone, it only seems natural to release them together. The information was revealed by DigiTimes, a publication which boasts of numerous sources within the supply chain of Apple. Thus, it's likely Apple will keep selling Series 2 devices right alongside Series 3 models.

A new set of details about the highly anticipated "Apple Watch Series 3" recently surfaced and points to a possible release along with the company's flagship device, the "iPhone 8". Since companies belonging to the supply group have declined to comment on its orders as well as the clients it has partnered with, and DigiTimes continued to remain unsuccessful on this front.

Apple is estimated to have shipped 11.9 million Apple Watches in 2016, accounting for 49% of overall smartwatch shipments, according to research firm Canalys.

Compal is the second largest notebook ODM worldwide and has been aggressively expanding into non-notebook businesses over the past few years. Apple shipped nearly 12 million Apple Watches past year, according to research firm Canalys, enough to command nearly 50% of the smartwatch market.




Apple sold an estimated 11.9 million Apple Watches past year, accounting for 49 percent of global smartwatch shipments, research company Canalys' data showed. Series 1 and Series 2 of the Apple Watch are both available in the market.

To prepare for the manufacturing of Apple Watch in the second half, Compal has moved its smart devices manufacturing equipment from its Chinese plants in Nanjing and Kunshan to Chongqing, the report said.

"Smartwatches and wearables will be one of the main growth engines for Compal this year", company president Ray Chen (陳瑞聰) told investors on Tuesday last week.
