Motorola’s next smartwatch may be coming soon… and now we have a pretty good idea of what it could look like.
The company posted a message on Twitter (which has since been deleted), showing a watch that looks kind of like the original Moto 360, except the crown is higher up than on the original and the lugs (the things where the watch band is attached) are larger.
OK, that could have just been a graphic design error… but it’s been about a year since the first Moto 360 was released, it’s been subject to a major price drop, we’ve seen numerous hints that new models are on the way… and now 9to5Google notes that two new Moto 360 devices just passed through the Brazilian equivalent of the FCC.
It sure seems like something’s about to happen.
The listings at Brazil’s Anetel wireless regulatory agency mention two different models, the 360S and the 360L. It seems likely that this means the watches will come in two sizes: small and large.
There aren’t a lot of other details, but the new models are said to feature Bluetooth LE support. 802.11b/g/n WiFi, and a 270 mAh battery in the smaller model and a 375 mAh battery in the larger version. The original Moto 360, by the way, had a 320 mAh battery.
One thing that doesn’t seem to have changed? If the deleted Tweet is accurate, it looks like the new phone will have a round display… but it’ll still have a “flat tire” look, thanks to a black bar at the bottom of the screen.
