Moto 360 2 worn by Lenovo executive in Indonesia; watch will launch this year
We've seen more photos this past week of the unannounced Motorola Moto 360 2 than of Ben Affleck's nanny. That could be a tip off that the Android Wear powered timepiece is soon going to be unveiled. After all, next month will be the first anniversary of the smartwatch's appearance, so it would seem to make sense that the successor should soon be unveiled.

The latest sighting of the Motorola Moto 360 2 comes after the watch was spotted on the wrist of Lenovo's senior vice president Chen Xudong. On Friday, during the unveiling of the Lenovo VIBE Shot in Indonesia, one of the Lenovo executives attending the event was wearing the Moto 360 2. That happened to be Dillon Ye, Vice President of Asia Pacific smartphone sales for the company.

How do we know that it was the sequel that Dillon was wearing? Simple. On the OG Moto 360, the one button on the device was positioned at 3 O'Clock. On the sequel, that button has been moved to 2 O'Clock. He also admitted that he was wearing the successor to the Moto 360.

Dillon said that the timepiece will indeed be launched before the end of the year, and added that it will be coming to Indonesia. Two versions of the Moto 360 2 are expected. The "S" version should be 38mm with a 270mAh battery, and the "L" version is said to measure 42mm with a larger 375mAh juicer. The 1.56-inch screen will get a higher 360 x 360 resolution compared to the 360 x 290 resolution on the OG Motorola Moto 360.

Thanks for the tip!
