If the rumors are to be believed, Apple’s upcoming Apple Watch Series 4 refresh could feature a slightly larger display. However it appears that together with the larger display, Apple will also be bumping up the resolution where according to reports, the smartwatch could feature a slightly higher resolution of 384×480.

At the moment current-gen Apple Watches have a display resolution of 312×390, at least as far as the 42mm model is concerned. This is particularly important because if you recall, a leaked render showed off a very interested Apple Watch face which contained a bunch of complications, more so than you would expect from the regular Apple Watch.

To achieve this a larger display would be required. The upside is also that apps will be able to display more information at a glance compared to what’s being offered now. However as 9to5Mac points out, the change in resolution will require developers to update their apps so that their apps and UI will scale accordingly.

Also with the larger display, we have to wonder if it will see apps return for the Apple Watch. Previously a bunch of big name apps dropped their support for the Apple Watch, including Google Maps, Instagram, and Lyft just to name a few. Hopefully a larger display will encourage developers to bring back their apps, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
