The current rumor has it that the Apple Watch 2 will look pretty much the same but run for a longer period of time.

And that’s a decent thing.

Apple’s second-generation Watch is unlikely to see any external changes, a Thursday morning report from South Korea suggests, with the company instead focusing on tightening up internal components in order to fit a larger battery.

Following up on yesterday’s report that Apple is working with South Korean firms LG and Samsung to produce thinner OLED displays for its Watch revamp, the new rumor is that Apple is working on a larger battery for the wearable.

The external design of the so-called “Apple Watch 2” is expected to remain largely unaltered. No other internal component changes have been rumored, though one unlikely report did suggest that Apple may choose to add a FaceTime camera for video calling purposes.

There is no word on when Apple may choose to release a hardware revision, as the Watch continues to roll out around the world. The wearable launched in Italy, Mexico, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland and Taiwan on June 26, and will come to The Netherlands, Sweden, and Thailand on July 17.

Apple recently moved forward with plans for watchOS 2, which will include support for a number of new features such as native apps and a new “nightstand” mode.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
