It’s just about time for Motorola to introduce a new smartwatch, coming up on the one-year mark from the commercial introduction of the Moto 360. And as if to confirm those expectations, we’ve been looking at a growing body of evidence pointing to the company’s work on a slightly redesigned wearable, one that keeps the general look of the first Moto 360 (that flat-tire display included), while making strap lugs more prominent and repositioning the watch’s button. When we checked out some FCC docs late last month, we saw mention of a few model numbers: 360L, 360S, and 360SP. Could these be pointing to a variety of hardware options for the smartwatch? There’s new support for that theory now, as we start to get to the bottom of just how those models might differ.
It doesn’t take too much of a logical leap to assume that the 360L and 360S, at least, might represent large and small versions of the wearable. OK – but where’s the proof?
Brazil’s version of the FCC recently published some documentation for these two models, and while it doesn’t offer us anything as juicy as dimensions (or even pics), the paperwork does contain one key spec which helps establish we’re looking at two sizes for the new Moto 360: model 360S reportedly contains a 270mAh battery, while model 360L is supposed to get a 375mAh battery. While that may fall short of outright confirmation of a large and small Moto 360, the inference here is pretty easy to draw.
