Our own Microsoft Band review states it in the very title: “don’t call it a smartwatch”. If that’s the case, Microsoft is yet to enter the smartwatch game, and join already notable competitors like Apple, Samsung, LG, Motorola, Sony, and the rest, in putting a smart timepiece on your wrist to try and make your life easier.
How about this Microsoft smartwatch shown above and below? It is being referred to as Moonraker, and, as far as we’re concerned, this story could go both ways: it could either be a leak, or it could be just a concept device (imagined by a third party). While we’re leaning towards the latter, we’d love to hear your thoughts, especially after reading what @evleaks unveils below.
Aside from seeing a very Samsung-esque design, the concept (leak?) also seems to imagine (reveal?) what appears to be a Windows (Phone)-inspired user interface with scrolling tiles (two dimensions), as well as familiar iconography. Color options seem to be in-line with the Nokia/Microsoft Lumia range.
@evleaks reveals the information that there is also a model number tied to the Microsoft smartwatch we’re seeing above and below: “the model number for this is/was LS-50”. This adds more mystery to the story, as it hints that the product/project existed and might even exist as we speak.
Let us know if this is something you’d be interested in. Also, if this is something that should’ve reached the market instead of the Microsoft Band.
