With the Moto 360 having completing one year since its launch in March last year, a new leak has surfaced suggesting that Motorola's next generation Android Wear smartwatch could be in the works.
Phandroid has reported receiving a tip from a popular app developer, who has recently noticed a new Motorola made Android Wear device connected to his Android developer console in the city of Mundelein, which is near Motorola's headquarters in Chicago, Illinois.
Bearing the codename Smelt, the Android Wear device reportedly runs Google's latest Android Lollipop iteration, v5.1. As far as hardware is concerned, the smartwatch carries a screen resolution measuring 360 x 360 pixels and is powered with an armeabi-v7 processor, which could be the ARM v7 CPU architecture.
The original Moto 360, in comparison, packs a 1.56in screen with resolution at 320 x 290 pixels, giving away pixel density at 205 pixels per inch. Texas Instruments' OMAP 3 paired with 512MB RAM is the source of power for the smartwatch, which uses a 3200mAh battery and has been updated to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop corresponding build version LWX49L.
The codename of the device Smelt means a small silvery fish, quite matching with Minnow which represents the Moto 360 codename. Besides, it also means molten metal, which indicates the sequel to Moto 360 would sport an all-metal design.
