Quanta Computer has once again been tasked with being the primary manufacturer for the Apple Watch 3. The so-called “Apple Watch Series 3” is likely to launch in September or October, according to Chinese-language Economic Daily News (via DigiTimes).
Quanta has been Apple’s primary manufacturer for the company’s wearable device since the company’s first Apple Watch model launched in April 2015.
As DigiTimes explains:
Apple is reportedly planning to launch its third-generation Apple Watch in 2017 and the wearable is likely to help Quanta’s Apple Watch product line turn profitable. Although Compal Electronics reportedly has joined the supply chain of the Apple Watch, the market watchers believe Apple is likely to let Compal mainly handle older-generation models, the paper added.
Little remains known about the Apple Watch 3, although most expect it to look like the first two models. Internally, it’s likely to receive a better processor and battery. Apple could also add cellular connectivity to some models.
