Over the past few months, manufacturers like Samsung and Sony have launched a number of smartwatches onto market. Execution wise, though, hardly a few have got the product right.
Like so many other players, Motorola too unveiled its own watch - the Moto 360. The intelligent timepiece has been the most recognized watch in the market today, and naturally its successor would be highly anticipated.
Now, Motorola, a Lenovo company, is reportedly working on a sequel to the Moto 360 smartwatch. Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing today posted an picture of what seems to be the legitimate successor to the Moto 360, on his personal Weibo page (an equivalent to Twitter in China). Apparently, the image was later removed soon after being published.
Interestingly, the removed picture shows off more mature design when compared to its predecessor - the original Moto 360. The new watch seem to look like a regular watch than earlier. What's more, one can also see a number of new straps and the loose body parts. It also appears that the second-generation Moto 360 watch would come in two different sizes, just like the Apple Watch.
At the moment, we don't have any concrete technical information about the next-generation Moto 360, but new rumors suggest that the device could be showcased at this year's Google I/O.
The rumor of the second-generation Moto 360 smartwatch comes in just a couple of weeks after Huawei - the telecom giant from China - unveiled a high-end Android Wear timepiece, the Huawei Watch. Much like the first-generation Moto 360, the Huawei Watch comes with a round display and runs Android Wear. The Chinese company is expected to reveal the watch's price and availability on April 15 in London.
