One of the most reliable tipsters on the Internet, Evan Blass aka @evleaks, has posted a press render of two differently-sized Moto 360 smartwatches, indicating it will indeed launch in two case and band options. The new smartwatch from Motorola has also received slight redesign with the crown button moving up to a 2 o'clock position. The external lugs are also seen on the new Moto 360 smartwatch. The new press render corroborates previous leaked images.
In other news, a Lenovo's Vice-President Smartphone Business Lead of Asia Pacific, Dillon Ye, was recently spotted (via Detik) wearing the next-generation Moto 360 smartwatch during a launch event in Indonesia. On being asked about the new Moto 360 smartwatch launch, Ye claimed that the company plans to launch it by year-end.
Earlier this month, a listing on the Brazil's Anatel, a federal telecom regulation website, tipped that Motorola could have more than one next-generation Moto 360 watch to launch. The Moto 360S variant was spotted with 270mAh battery, while the Moto 360L was seen sporting 375mAh battery. As compared, the existing Moto 360 model features a 320mAh battery. This however indicates that the 'S' and 'L' might stand for small and large based on the battery capacities of the listed models.
Two of the biggest visible cosmetic change spotted in leaked images until now has been the presence of the side crown moved up from the 3 o'clock position to the 2 o'clock position and the watch now featuring external lugs.
We are yet to hear an official launch date from Motorola for the Moto 360 successor.
