Motorola Moto 360 sequel surfaces in new photographs?
The other day, we told you about a tweet from Motorola Mobility that included a now removed video of a smartwatch taking voice commands. Because the placement of the lone button (at 2 O'Clock) is different than the location of the button on the Motorola Moto 360 (which is at 3 O'Clock), the device pictured was most likely the Motorola Moto 360 sequel. Today, some new pictures of the sequel have appeared. Once again, we know that it is the Motorola Moto 360 successor by the 2 O'Clock placement of the button. You can see a cut out at exactly that spot on some leaked photos of the casing for the smartwatch.

For those who are not fans of what has been dubbed the "flat tire" display on the timepiece, the fact that we have to resort to the placement of the button to tell the two models apart, does mean that the display on the sequel does resemble the one on the original model. Motorola has claimed that it needs the bottom of the display for the placement of sensors, like the ambient light sensor.

Motorola is rumored to bring two versions of the Moto 360 sequel to market. One is a 38mm watch with a 270mAh battery. The second is a 42mm variant featuring a larger 375mAh cell. Earlier this year, there was talk that the successor to the Moto 360 would feature a higher-resolution 360 x 360 screen. The 1.56-inch display on the original model offers a resolution of 360 x 290.

Since the Moto 360 was launched last September, we could see the sequel released next month.

Thanks for the tip!
