Moto 360 (2021) smartwatch once again spotted in presentation slides, reveals Snapdragon 4100 SoC branding
The image shared by 9to5Google was reportedly found in an investor presentation, alongside three other smartwatches.
Motorola has not yet revealed anything about its upcoming smartwatch, which is supposed to be the successor of 2019 Moto 360. The device is already in rumours for featuring Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 4100 SoC. It is said to bring a major bump in terms of performance since it uses the more efficient 12nm process as compared to Snapdragon 3100's 28nm process. As per Qualcomm, the 4100 is supposed to bring 85% faster CPU, 2.5 times faster GPU and 25% more battery life. However, the upcoming 2021 Moto 360 has now showed up in an image, indicating the inclusion of the latest processor.
The image shared by 9to5Google was reportedly found in an investor presentation, alongside three other smartwatches. The unnamed watch, which had a text written at its back side, was enhanced by a Redditor named TheMacJezza. On zooming, it was found to say ‘Snapdragon Wear 4100'.
The Back side also shows Moto branding, in addition to 5ATM, GPS and NFC texts. The image in the presentation, also shows the front of the watch, which for now, seems to be a concept look and not a final one. You can see no bezels at all and a Moto branding on the watch face and the band.
It is still not for sure when this particular device will see the light of the day. However, the fact that it is showing up in slides, means that the company is indeed working on it and the wearable device will have an imminent launch.
In a separate report by 9to5Google, it was revealed that in 2020, a Canadian company called eBuyNow launched the Moto 360 smartwatch as a part of its agreement with Motorola. The same company recently revealed the roadmap of smartwatch launches for 2021 in a presentation. And in one slide it showed the Moto smartwatches. While one is seen with a circular dial, the second one has a rectangular look.
