Apple is getting ready to unveil its latest tech gadgets in what can be considered as the world’s most eagerly awaited tech event. While the company does maintain the highest level of secrecy, however, there is always a space for last-minute leaks.

Someone at Apple has updated the website’s sitemap a tad bit early resulting in leaking out information about the upcoming Apple Watch. And yes, seems this time these might be just called Apple Watch instead of Apple Watch 4 and the new watches seem to be 2MM taller for both the variants i.e. 40mm and 44 mm tall.

Another piece of information from this leak suggests that the new Apple watches may be launched with GPS and cellular variants available in space gray, silver and gold aluminum color options. Along with two more variants in stainless steel that may come with Nike and Hermes collaborations. While the ceramic variant seems to be missing all together there may be new sport band colors along with a multi-color leather band and a stainless steel.

Apple is expected to launch its fourth generation wearable alongside three iPhone models at the Steve Jobs Theater on September 12th. We have a plenty of information on the alleged iPhone models that may differ from each other primarily on the basis of screen sizes, but the internet isn’t having much about the expected Apple Watch Series 4.

But, now a leaked image spotted on the leaks aggregator site Slashleaks looks to serve as the biggest evidence ever. The leaked image shows a sketch of a watch with a circular design and an iPhone is placed near to it. While the image doesn’t mention it to be the Apple Watch, the iPhone placed near to it alludes the same.

Apple Watch models have featured rectangular design and now it seems like the new Apple Watch might switch to a circular face. It was reported before as well that Apple’s upcoming watch will come with a circular display, courtesy of a patent reported around two years back. But, nothing concrete was found then that could it a strong support. But, now this leak has made the rumors to circular once again.

Some of the key details are also written on the paper on which the sketch is drawn. The watch may feature a 1.3-inch circular Super AMOLED display with 360x360 pixels resolution. It also shows that the wearable will come with support for Bluetooth and WiFi 802.11bg. It will also include NFC support for Apple Pay contact-less payment solution.

According to a recent report from Bloomberg, Apple Watch Series 4 is expected feature smaller bezels so as to display more information and notifications. The circular design means Apple Watch may soon join the Galaxy Watch and Huawei watches. Also, seems like the circle in Apple's event invitation hints at the circular watch; for a new design.
