Official tweet reveals that the Motorola Moto 360 successor might bring back the flat tire design
Motorola has taken down the video in the meantime, but the screenshot that we've posted above tells the whole story. As you can notice, the Motorola smartwatch showcased in the video is not the original Moto 360. While we don't know anything about the internal specs, it doesn't take a keen observer to notice that the way that the band connects to the watch - the lugs - is different from what Motorola did with the original Moto 360. Furthermore, the crown seems to sit a bit higher on the watch in the video compared to its position on the Moto 360.
At a first glance, the differences in terms of aesthetics don't seem to be too significant. However, it turns out that the similarities might turn out to be the problem. More to the point, the flat tire found on the lower side of the display is something that many fans hoped for Motorola to make do with on the Moto 360 successor.
While we can't be sure that this is the Moto 360 successor, all signs seem to point out that the Lenovo-owned company is about to introduce a new smartwatch. Back in Spring, Lenovo's CEO posted an image on Weibo of what many people thought of as being prototypes for the Moto 360 successor. More recently, we've seen mentions of a new Motorola wearable showing up on various regulatory agencies, which is almost always a sign that a new device is about to be launched, or at least officially unveiled.
What do you guys think of this leak? Will you be disappointed if the Moto 360 successor comes with a flat tire design?
