Apple which is known for its precise and rather guarded releases about its products found itself in a tight spot on Tuesday after its Czech Republic Apple Store website "accidentally" leaked photos of its brand new Space Black Milanese Loop band for Apple Watch.
The net was soon abuzz with the rumors that hints about the new Milanese Loop band (via 9to5Mac).
Smartwatch.Me was one of the few which saw the band on the website before it was taken down and replaced with another product.
The accessory appears to be made for the Space Black Stainless Steel Apple Watch case, which is strikingly similar to the Space Black Link Bracelet.
Insiders now said that since the Czech Republic Apple Store had already got hold of the photos, it will not be long before the traditional Milanese Loop is released in the market.
In addition to the of red color options for the Sport Band which was released some three days back, the Space Black Milanese Loop's Czech Republic listing clearly shows that Apple is planning multiple launches in January 2016, says observers.
The Space Black Milanese Loop 'accidentally leaked' by Apple.
The listing just mentioned the size of the band as 42mm, which is a departure from the common 38mm original Milanese Loop band.
The new band was also uploaded for some time on the Portugal and Hungary Apple Store websites without a 'Buy' button.
"It is also possible that Apple got it all mixed up and it is unlikely Space Black Milanese Loop band will make it to markets," said another trade analyst on Twitter.
Smartwatch.Me tried to contact Apple about the "leak", but there has been stiffening silence from the company and they simply replaced the links to the Space Black Milanese Loop's store page with a redirect the old stainless steel band option.
