The information comes via "an anonymous and unverified tipster" who was personally involved in the development of the Spotify application for Apple Watch.

Most interestingly, Kuo's report says that the new watches will each have a 15 percent larger display, as well as larger battery capacity. Apple's WWDC 2018 is set to debut on June 4 and should end on four days later.

Apple Watch Series 4 will feature 15 per cent larger display when compared to Watch Series 3, according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via 9to5 Mac). Notably, all the Apple Watch models until now come with 38mm or 42mm displays. It's unclear if the increase in screen real estate will come at the expense of bezels or if we should expect the watch's dimensions to grow.

The analyst is generally vague on other product details, suggesting upgrades to the health sensors included in Apple Watch but does not go into detail.

KGI expects that Apple will sell 22 million to 24 million Apple Watch units in 2018, a 30 percent increase over past year.

Kuo says that a "more trendy form factor design" and the introduction of new sensors apart from heart rate monitoring, combined with a price drop in older models will "drive Apple Watch sales to new records". "KGI: NEW Apple Watch models coming later this fall with new design, ~15% bigger display, enhanced health monitoring and longer battery life", Geskin wrote on Twitter.
