Apple Watch Series 4 Models Filed in Eurasian Database Ahead of September Launch

Apple today filed six new Apple Watch model numbers with the Eurasian Economic Commission, including A1977, A1978, A1975, A1976, A2007, and A2008, according to French blog Consomac. All of the models run watchOS 5.

The filings are legally required for any encrypted devices sold in Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Russia.

These model numbers likely correspond with the widely rumored Apple Watch Series 4 lineup, expected to be unveiled at an Apple Event in September alongside a trio of new iPhone models, new AirPods, and more.

In the past, similar filings with the Eurasian Economic Commission have been submitted for the lower-cost 9.7-inch iPad, 10.5-inch iPad Pro and 12.9-inch iPad Pro, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, Apple Watch Series 2, AirPods, and 2018 MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, usually within one to two weeks before each product was released.

At this point, it was already pretty obvious that Series 4 models are coming next month, but the filings eliminate any remaining doubt.

The only unique aspect of this year's filings are that there are currently only six unreleased Apple Watch Series 4 model numbers, whereas the Series 3 lineup has eight model numbers: two aluminum GPS-only models, and six LTE models, including aluminum, stainless steel, and ceramic variants in two sizes.

Naturally, this has led to some speculation that there might not be ceramic Series 4 models, but there are many possibilities.

Earlier this year, well-connected Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said Apple Watch Series 4 models will feature 15 percent larger displays, longer battery life, and improved health monitoring capabilities.

If past is predicate for the future, Apple will likely hold its next event on Wednesday, September 12, with invites to the media going out in the last few days of August. MacRumors will provide live coverage as usual.

As long as my bands are compatible, I look forward to any other changes with the larger display and additional health sensors.

Hope Apple don't hike the prices too much.

People really love Apple Watches, seeing more and more of them (albeit older models). Keep it accessible, it is helping people to put their health front and centre.

I won a series 3 at work the other day. I have yet to open the box.

Maybe I should sell it and wait for the latest one. Not really a fan wearables anyways though so not sure what to do.
If you’re not interested in keeping it, I would sell it now, as you would still likely accrue more of a profit, because once the Series 4 is announced Assumingly, the Series 3 will drop in price and the market will be saturated with those wanting to sell their watches wanting to upgrade. But being your watch is new, that also helps.

Great news, i'm looking to update from my Series 0 to the Series 4 when it comes out. If they don't update the Ceramic i wonder if they will add another version for the Edition instead or just remove it from the line up?

Still got my Series 0 - and desperate to replace it. The Series 4 can't come soon enough.
