A new photo appears to confirm the edge-to-edge display expected in the latest Apple Watch ahead of today's official announcement.

Apple Watch Series 4 Front Panel


Shared by Slashleaks, the photo shows the front digitizer glass panel of an Apple Watch with the flex cable protruding from the top. There are significantly smaller bezels around the edges than the existing Apple Watch.

It is hard to tell the exact size of the screen or watch itself from the shared image, but other leaks have points to two new sizes for the Series 4 wearable -- 40mm and 44mm.

Aside from the larger display, leaked images from Apple's own website appear to show off a slimmer body design as well. At present, it is impossible to judge the authenticity of the image.

We will know with certainty soon enough with Apple's "Gather Round" event slated to start at 10 AM PST on Wednesday.

    Absolutely no reason to change the bands and system they introduced. Even if the made the body significantly larger, they could make that edge curve work with a larger body.

    I thought it was “Gather ROUND”?

    It doesn't look as dramatic here. And I certainly wouldn't think to describe this edge to edge. That said, still quite exited for this update, and curious to see what's under the hood.

    That’s seriously wishful thinking.

    The bands and body are probably the same size still, it's the screen that's 2mm larger.

    No, the case height dimension is measured in mm. And the current watch is 42mm tall. The display couldn’t possibly be 42mm in any dimension without changing the case size.

    However, the bands could stay the same if the case is only enlarged on the top and bottom, but not the sides. Although the digitizer looks the same, they would only be elongating the watch by 1mm on each end, which also explains the rumored display dimensions which appeared to be too tall for the current case.
