Moto 360 Successor Images Surface Online With Codename Smelt

    The Moto 360 was announced and launched last year which means that assuming we're on an annual update cycle, we can expect Motorola to announce its successor this year.

    That being said it seems that a render of the device has made its way online via Weibo over in China. The render doesn't really tell us much but it does share some similarities to an accidental leak by Lenovo's CEO.

    As you can see in the image above, the render shows us a watch that does not appear to be too different from the current Moto 360, although the more obvious changes would be in its bezel.

    The device name has not been revealed, although it has been given the code name 'Smelt'. It is said that the device runs on Android 5.1, and has a display resolution of 360 x 360. This will be a slight improvement from the Moto 360 which has a 320 x 290 display.

    However what's odd is that the crown of the watch appears to be set at the 3 o'clock position on the watch, while the earlier photo from Lenovo's CEO suggested a 2 o'clock position.

    Previous leaked photos had hinted that the successor to the Moto 360 would come in two sizes, and that it would possibly even support regular watch straps.

    It is possible that either photo could have been a prototype which means that there is a chance that the design could change.

    Other details about the smartwatch are still a mystery at this point, but we expect to see more leaks going forward.
