On the same day we announced the approval of chargers for the Apple Watch Series 5 by Anatel, Apple Brazil today updated its website confirming the date that the new generation of the watch will be launched in our country: October 25, an exact week after the arrival of the iPhones 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max.
The page already indicates that all the different models (except Herms) will be released together in Brazil: the traditional aluminum and stainless steel, the Edition (titanium or ceramic) and the Nike line.
Approval of GPS + Cellular models
The curious confirmation is that, so far, the National Telecommunications Agency has not confirmed the approval of the Apple Watch Series 5 cellular connectivity models only of the A2092 (40mm) and A2093 (44mm) models, which are only aluminum with GPS
On the other hand, we We found that yes, the models A2156 (40mm) and A2157 (44mm) already have in the Anatel system only the Certificate of Approval that has not been published so far.
Apple Brazil probably already knows that everything is in compliance, so it felt safe to announce the release date of the product.
As expected, these are the Apple Watch Series 5 (GPS + Cellular) models sold in Europe. Even so, American models this year are also compatible with 4G bands 3 (1,800MHz) and 7 (2,600MHz) used by Brazilian operators and we have already confirmed that, at least in Claro, they are working perfectly.
For now, there is no information on the prices of these new models in the national territory.
