Though Apple (AAPL) is highly secretive about its launch line-up, almost every time it fails to plug at least one major leak. One such loophole was found by French outlet Consomac, which found that the tech giant has listed six Apple Watch models in a Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) filing.
The filing is mandatory for the sale of all encrypted devices in Russia and some Eastern European markets.
The filings don’t reveal much though, except the model names of the Apple Watch Series 4 lineup – A1977, A1978, A1975, A1976, A2007, and A2008. Chances are these will be three models of two different sizes, similar to its predecessors. The Series 3 lineup had four models of two sizes each – making a total of 8 models.
And going by the rumors that are taking rounds, the new models are likely to feature bigger screen, longer battery life and better health functionalities. Of course, all of them will be working on the latest WatchOS 5.
Apple generally organizes its much-touted iPhone launch event in September, and though the date has not yet been formalized for this year, it is widely expected to happen on September 12. During this event, Apple also launches the latest updates to its other products as well, including MacBook, iPad and Apple Watch.
This is not the first time an EEC filing is giving insights into Apple’s upcoming launches. Previously, it has revealed data on major products including AirPods, Apple Watch Series 2 and iPhone 7.
