Apple's iWatch will likely have a circular face, analyst Brian Blair of Rosenblatt Securities said.
In a May 27 report on the Asia supply chain, Blair said that models of the iWatch exist, including ones with sapphire screens. Although TPK will make the touch panel for the device, Blair said it could have a sapphire glass overlay. The same report said the upcoming iPhone 6 would use sapphire glass from GT Advanced.
Motorola plans to release its own circular, Android-based smartwatch this summer. Apple's device will likely have "a slimmer profile" than the Moto 360, Blair said in the report. Like Samsung's Galaxy Gear watch, LG's planned smartwatch will have a rectangular face, but on May 27 LG launched its G3 phone with a circle-shaped active display visible through a special cover, a release said.
