A new filing on the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) website indicates that Motorola has a new Moto 360 smartwatch in the works.
The filed documents only state the product type as a «smartwatch» and refers to tests for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
Unfortunately, the filing does come with a confidentiality request from Motorola, so there are no diagrams to give us a glimpse of what it could look like, but we assume it will be the successor to the Moto 360 in both name and looks.
More Moto, please
It is interesting that the filing has been published on the same day that Motorola announced the Moto X Play, Moto X Style and a new Moto G (2015).
But while the published document states that testing was completed on July 22, it also states that it was only submitted today, July 28, as well, so it could be a while yet before Motorola makes an announcement.
There isn’t much else known about a Moto 360 successor, though rumors indicate it will sport a superior 360 x 360 pixel screen, along with ARM v7 CPU architecture inside.
The filing does show, at least, that Motorola hasn’t yet given up on round-faced smartwatches, and it’ll be something to look forward to, hopefully before the end of the year.
