Mysterious Motorola smartwatch passes through FCC

by Brandon Russell | July 28, 2015

Motorola announced three new smartphones during a global presentation on Tuesday, but noticeably absent was any mention of a new smartwatch. We already know a Moto 360 sequel is on the way, but we just don’t know when. Thanks to a fresh FCC filing, however, a new wearable from the company appears closer than ever.

As you can see in the image below, a Motorola smartwatch is going through the steps necessary before its imminent announcement. The FCC document doesn’t reveal much; due to a confidentiality agreement, there are no photos, renders, or anything else worth mentioning. The filing does, however, mention Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, which were already expected inclusions in the upcoming device.

Although the Moto 360 was announced over a year ago, it wasn’t actually released until early September, which could be when Motorola’s next wearable is announced. According to several rumors, the upcoming wearable will feature a 1.56-inch 360 x 360 display, a Snapdragon 400 processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage and a 400mAh battery. Additionally, the device might come in two sizes, similar to the Apple Watch’s release.

IFA in Berlin is happening in September, so perhaps Motorola will use that event to unveil its next wearable.
