Apple iWatch to offer 8 GB storage, 1.3 and 1.5 inch screen, gold option – analyst

“A new report from KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo sheds some interesting light on the iWatch specifications,” Benjamin Mayo reports for 9to5Mac.

“Kuo believes the iWatch will feature 8 GB of internal storage, with 512 MB of RAM,” Mayo reports. “Naturally, these stats are lower than current iOS devices (which have upwards of 16 GB of storage and 1 GB of RAM), but still seems high for a wearable smartwatch.”

“This may suggest the device can act more independently from an iPhone than most assume,” Mayo reports. “8 GB of storage space is quite a lot and could be used for things like caching maps, or perhaps enable offline voice recognition. KGI also believes the iWatch will come in two sizes, with a 1.3 inch and a 1.5 inch screen… There is also mention of a gold color option.”

    1. Ah, but there are now more substantial leaks. That wasn’t the case just a few days ago. To me that says:

      It will be announced. But it will not ship for a few months still.

  1. I’ve said it before … Until someone from Apple is standing on a stage showing me the device, telling me what it can do, how much it will cost, and when I can buy it in a store, I don’t believe anything!

  2. iWatch will be mostly independent but uses proximity to interact with your chosen device. You can turn it on by shaking your wrist with a certain gesture and It will be able use gestures of Siri for almost all controls – it is designed to mini use the amount of touch input. It will connect to bespoke blue tooth earphones for music and calls. One of the ear phones will have a microphone. The watch uses proximity to connect to an iCloud aligned device for you to finish emails it to use bigger screens for face time. The device applies gestures to control screens and to give input these devices. Gestures can also be programmed into the unit for use in smartphone systems such as swipe to unlock or wave to illuminate areas in your house. The biometric sensors in the strap give you feedback on conditions such as heart rate and pace. Data can be sent to your physician or sports medic automatically and also integrates via wife or Bluetooth to gym equipment automatically adjusting your program inline with your set goals. These and other planned features make it a break through device not unlike Mac, iPod and iPhone.
