Motorola has been the subject of several rumours these past few months and it seems there might be some truth to them after all, as Lenovo Chairman Yang Yuanqing may have let the cat out of the bag.
In an interview with The Telegraph, Yuanqing confirmed that we will probably see two new devices over the summer period, “We have many new models in development with the Moto brands so you may see in summer us launching some very exciting products, includingphones and watches,” he said.
While he didn’t reveal any information as to what the devices might be, it’s been previously confirmed that Motorola are looking to release the Moto X on a yearly cycle. With the current Moto X slowly approaching a year old, the release date coincides very nicely with a refresh to their flagship device.
Rumours for what’s inside the upcoming flagship appear to differ quite wildly depending on the outlet. STJS believes the device will include a 5.2″ Quad HD display, Snapdragon 808, 4GB RAM, a 16 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front-facing camera and generous 3280 mAh battery. TotalTech, a more reliable source, claims the screen will be a larger 5.64″ but the RAM will only be 3 GB.
The other expected device could be an update to the Moto 360, a fantastic looking smartwatch that unfortunately fell short on the internal hardware. Underpowered and with a poor battery life, the wearable would benefit greatly with a faster powered version.
Both of theses devices launched in September last year, so the confirmation of these mysterious product launches seems to fit a little too perfectly. More than just a coincidence? We think so.
