Moto 360 successor listed on Bluetooth SIG, expected to be launched at the Google I/O conference later this month.
A new Motorola Android device has been spotted on Bluetooth SIG site, which according to rumours could be the successor to the Motorola Moto 360. The device is listed as “Motorola Android Device” with the model number BTMW03. The previous Moto 360 was listed with the model number BTMW01, so this is in all probability the wearables successor.
Last year Bluetooth SIG had listed the Moto 360 just a few days prior to its official unveiling at the Google I/O conefernce in June 2014. So this could mean that the next generation Motorola Moto 360 may be launched as soon as at the Google I/O conference later this month. The listing doesn’t reveal any of the devices specs, but past rumours about the smartwatch suggest that the next Moto 360 will come with a fully round display and an increased resolution of 360 × 360 pixels. The smartwatch will have an improved metal design than its predecessor and will offer a choice of colors as well as material for the bands. Latest leaked images reveal a disc like design with a new metal clasping mechanism. Other rumoured specifications include an "armeabi-v7a" processor and Android Wear 5.1 OS.
Earlier in March Lenovo’s CEO accidentally revealed the next generation Moto 360 smartwatch on a Chinese social media site Weibo. The picture displayed several smartwatch straps and Chassis along with watches that were completely assembled. The images carried a quote that read, “Moto 360, matching the arrival of the era of freedom, in the future we want to increase the store features a watch shop.” Motorola Moto 360 smartwatch was released last year for Rs 17,999. The watch had a stainless steel design with a round display and 320 x 290 pixels resolution. The bottom of the smartwatch had the display controls including the drivers and ambient light sensors. The company recently announced a price cut in the device as the competition in the wearable segment is heating up with the launch of the Apple Watch. Internet giant Google has also announced a partnership with TAG Heuer to launch new luxury wearables, backed by Intel processors. Apart form this LG and Huawei have also unveiled premium smartwatches at the MWC.
