On Wednesday, Sept. 12, the world is expecting Apple to announce a new set of iPhones, and a new Apple Watch as well. But you don’t necessarily need to wait. Last Thursday, 9to5Mac brought us what could be our very first look at that Apple Watch Series 4, complete with a notably larger display.
How much larger? Well, today 9to5Mac sleuth Guillerme Rambo is doubling down on his scoop. He says the Apple Watch Series 4’s resolution is 384×480 pixels, meaning way more visual real estate than the the 312×390-pixel resolution of the 42mm Apple Watch Series 3.
That would be a huge difference when we’re talking about a screen this small. And to illustrate that difference, 9to5Mac took some screenshots in an Apple Watch simulator to show you just how much more text and graphics you might be able to see:
If true, it could change how long you’ll need to spend staring at the watch to comfortably absorb the same amount of information.

Apple didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
