Apple has registered several new Apple Watch model identifiers in the Eurasian Economic Database, as Consomac has discovered. Apple plans to release a new watch at the iPhone event in September.
Series # 4 are listed in a total of six model identifiers and shipped with watchOS 5. This submission suggests segmentation of the lineup compared to what is provided with Apple Watch Series 3.

The model number of the new Apple Watch unit is A1977, A1978, A1975, A1976, A2007, A2008. This is inaccurate science. Because files do not accurately describe the specification beyond "personal wearable electronic devices", it is a pretty educated guess.
In the past, Eurasian regulatory applications threw hats on the iPhone 7, Apple Watch Series 2, AirPod, and 2017 WWDC hardware and the $ 329 iPad earlier this year. Last month, I released the latest version of the MacBook Pro in 2018.
But assuming two sizes per Series 4 model just like any previous Apple Watch, Apple seems to boot with just three models. In Series 3, there are 8 types of models, 3 types of cellular products, GPS only model, each with 2 sizes. Perhaps Series 4 will only be offered on mobile phone compatible models. Another possibility is that Apple drops expensive ceramic models from the lineup. The submitted documents are not enough for us to tell.
Apple watch is planning a major update this year. Ming-Chi Kuo announced that Apple Watch redesigned the first major chassis and both models feature large screens (and few bezels). The screen is about 15% bigger, rumored on 1.57 inches and 1.78 inches diagonally.
