Apple Watch Ultra 2 display specs
The Apple Watch Ultra 2 is expected to arrive with a larger, 2.1-inch display compared to the 1.9-inch screen of the OG Watch Ultra that it is currently boasting. The enlarged screen will offer 325 PPI pixel density, slightly lower than the 338 PPI on the OG Watch Ultra, indicating that it will likely keep the same screen resolution that is tailored for Apple’s Watch apps.
The backplane would still reportedly be made by LG and be either of the frugal LTPO, or the LTPS variety. The problem with using a microLED display on anything larger than an Apple Watch device with its comparatively smaller size and low resolution, is that it would be prohibitively expensive to employ at larger diagonals.
Granted, on theory the microLED screen should be brighter and longer lasting with better power efficiency. In reality, however, in these criteria the first generation of microLED screens would be on par with the latest improvements in OLED display technology, such as dual-stack designs and enhanced blue diode materials.
Apple Watch Ultra 2 release date
That is why, perhaps, Apple may be pushing the Watch Ultra 2 release date to 2025 instead of launching it next year as rumored. The DSCC supply chain checks indicate LG’s backplane conveyor belts won’t be operational for mass Watch Ultra 2 microLED display production before the second half of 2024, which would make a 2025 launch the more realistic scenario.
This way, Apple will have plenty of time to perfect the microLED technology for the 2.1-inch Watch Ultra 2 panel so that it can justify an eventual higher price with some tangible advantages before using an OLED screen.
