Titanium material will become the new direction of Apple Watch case material

Since the release of the first Apple Watch on April 24, 2015, Apple has been chasing endless possibilities on wearables. It is worth noting that the titanium material will become a new direction for the Apple Watch case material.
On August 18, according to a number of foreign media reports, Apple's latest WatchOS beta seems to have revealed the company's new watch model. Information shows that this fall, Apple will introduce a new Apple Watch in ceramic and titanium, and two images in the beta show two models. Figure:
This image is the initial configuration process for Apple Watch. In general, Apple's watch firmware will play an animation when it is first set up, and imitate the back design of the watch, including the model name and the iconic “California Apple Design” logo.
However, please pay attention to what you write: “44mm Titanium” and “44mm Ceramics”. It can be seen that the new Apple Watch will be available in 40mm and 44mm versions. Apple analyst Guo Mingxi has predicted that titanium materials will become the material of Apple smart watches for the first time. It is understood that only the Apple Card is now made of titanium.
Looking back at history, the company chose ceramics in Apple Watch Series 2 (white for the main color) and Series 3 (the gray color for the main color) after Apple canceled the gold version. For Series 4, the ceramic is completely removed from the lineup.
Now it seems to be making a comeback, plus a brand new titanium casing. Perhaps Apple believes that after years of glass and aluminum alloys, titanium has re-emerged.
It's unclear whether the new Apple Watch model will be part of a larger 5 Series release, or simply added to an existing Series 4 product. However, Apple plans to release its iPhone11 series on September 10th, and all the answers will be announced. Lei Feng Network will continue to pay attention.
