The Apple Watch 2 components are apparently starting to come together.
Apple has reportedly started signing component orders for the second-generation Apple Watch, a possible sign that version two of the wearable will begin mass production within the next few months.
The list of partners includes Advanced Semiconductor Engineering, Samsung, Amkor, STATS< ChipPac and Kinsus Interconnect Technology.
ASE would be the primary supplier of SiP modules for the so-called “S2” chip that is likely to power the new device. Amkor and STATS ChipPAC would serve as secondary providers.
Apple would continue to source processor fabrication and NAND storage from Samsung.
The Apple Watch 2 is rumored to be a performance upgrade as opposed to a complete redesign. It’s unknown as to when the device will be released.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
