The Apple Watch Series 4 will be offered in slightly larger sizes than in previous generations, Wednesday's products page sitemap leak reveals, with this year's releases supposedly offered in 40-millimeter and 44-millimeter variants.

Surfacing early on Wednesday, the sitemap includes listings for two different sizes of Apple Watch, but with slightly different dimensions from last year. Spotted by Slashleaks, the sitemap lists accessories for new 44mm and 40mm versions of the Apple Watch Series 4.

The Apple Watch Series 3, the previous generation that also appears in the sitemap, was available in 38mm and 42mm versions, just as with previous models, with that version continuing to be offered in its existing sizes. At present, it isn't clear if the 42mm size will have an upgrade to Series 4 specs.

The change in size for the Series 4 range was tipped in rumors and practically confirmed in an image leak from Apple itself in August. September's beta for watchOS 5 also indicated a change in resolution for the display to 384 by 480 pixels, which would certainly indicate the use of a lagrer screen.

Apple is expected to unveil the Apple Watch Series 4 at its "Gather Round" event later today, alongside three new iPhones named the "iPhone XS," "XS Max," and "iPhone XC."
