Rumor: Apple Watch 2 screens will not change size, resolution or shape

While LG is the lone supplier of glass screens for the current Apple Watch, the rumor states that the sequel will see Samsung producing a flexible OLED display for the device, along with LG. This contradicts a report published last month that claimed LG will continue to remain the sole supplier of displays for the next iteration of the Apple Watch. The sequel is expected to be released some time next year.
The Apple Watch 2 could feature a thinner display in order for Apple to include a larger capacity battery. That's something that all users can be happy about. There is also talk that the next-generation Apple Watch will be a stand-alone model like the Samsung Gear S. This would mean that an iPhone would not have to be paired with the watch, as the timepiece would be able to make/take calls and receive notifications on its own.

What kills me is most of the Apple watch faces that are shown are round analog watch faces to begin with, so a round watch face looks much better on a round display. Like some of the round Android Wear watches. I had an Apple guy tell me that Apple has more choices when it comes to Watches compared to other smart watches. I said really, how so? He said we have more choices in sizes, material finishes, and band combinations. I don't know what kool aid he was drinking, but Apple only has 1 square style in 2 sizes, and a few band offerings. Android Wear has 8 different watches (styles), with more to come (both square and round). Can use off the shelf watch bands. To top it off you can now use Android Wear watches to get iphone notifications. Just install a 3rd party app on android wear watch and one on an iPhone.
