Apple Watch Series 7 design leak shows new colors, flattened shape

The Apple Watch is about due for a refresh. The last design refresh came with the Apple Watch Series 4, bringing an edge-to-edge display and refined look, but now, three years later, it’s starting to look slightly stale. That design refresh, however, may well be on the way, at least according to a leak from serial leaker Jon Prosser.

According to Prosser, who published a video detailing the upcoming design refresh, the Apple Watch Series 7 will likely come with a new flat-edge look that matches current iPhone and iPad models. Prosser notes that his sources didn’t confirm that the design changes are destined for the Series 7, but rather an upcoming Apple Watch — however, Apple generally seems to update its mobile devices every three years.

According to Prosser, along with the new flat-edged look, Apple may be experimenting with slightly smaller bezels than the Apple Watch already has, plus it may launch the device in new colors, including a mint green that matches the AirPods Max. Apart from that, the device still more or less looks like an Apple Watch, with a Digital Crown on the right side and support for the already-large ecosystem of watch bands.

Prosser’s renders aren’t actual renders from Apple. Instead, Prosser says he received images and CAD files showing off the new design and created renders based on those files in an effort to protect his sources. Generally, Prosser’s Apple leaks have been pretty accurate over the past few years, but leaks should always be taken with a grain of salt — nothing is official until it’s announced by Apple.

Unfortunately, the new leak only notes the new design of the Apple Watch — not the actual specs. Under the hood, we’re expecting an upgraded processor, and Apple has been rumored to be working on a blood pressure monitor for the Apple Watch, so it’s possible that could appear in the new device. We also expect the device to still come in two sizes, though the sizes may be slightly different from current models considering the redesign. The new device will also feature an upgraded version of WatchOS, though the new software is expected to be shown off at Apple’s WWDC on June 7.

This $250 smartwatch destroys the Apple Watch in 4 ways
Amazfit GTR 4 LE on a tree branch with screen on.

Amazfit recently announced the Amazfit GTR 4 Limited Edition, and I used it to replace my similarly priced Apple Watch SE. It's a $250 health/fitness-orientated smartwatch, and upon first glance, it'd be easy to overlook it.

In my 10 days of usage, however, I came across a few things that the Apple Watch SE either doesn’t have — or offers on the more expensive Apple Watch Series 8. While the software experience on my Apple Watch SE remains unparalleled, there are four ways in which the new Amazfit GTR 4 LE is outright better.

New Motorola Razr 2023 leaks show the colorful flip phone we need
Four side-by-side shots of the Moto Razr 2023. A new red coloway is visible.

There are only a few major names in the game if you're looking for a foldable smartphone, but the name with the longest pedigree is probably Motorola. Leaks of the new Moto Razr have emerged on Twitter, and while they show relatively little of the phone, it does show off a new outer screen personalization feature – and a new, bold red colorway.

The leaks come courtesy of seasoned tipster Evan Blass (who has a private Twitter account), and he refers to it as the "Motorola Razr 40 Ultra", further fueling speculation that Motorola may release multiple versions of the Razr this year, including a more reasonably priced Razr Lite. As an "Ultra", it would make sense for these leaks to show the more expensive, flagship version of the device and, as such, likely includes features that wouldn't be available on a "Lite" version.
