Moto 360 leaked to have Sport variant, coming November [UPDATE]

Moto 360 leaked to have Sport variant, coming November [UPDATE]

It seems that nowadays the trend is to have different variants for a smartwatch. Apple did it and just now Samsung did it. Now it seems that Motorola is joining the train when it unveils the next Moto 360 smartwatch. At least, according to this latest leak. Aside from the 2nd Moto 360 we've seen so far, which is also leaked to arrive September, there will also be a Sports model with more vibrant color options and what seems to be a more rugged rubber strap.

The new Moto 360 may be smaller and cheaper

The new Moto 360 may be smaller and cheaper

Up close and personal with the next Moto 360, it would appear that things are getting a bit smaller this time around. Strange for the smartphone world where devices are always getting bigger, but perfectly reasonable for the Wild West of the wearables market. Here it seems as though the next Moto 360 keeps the "flat tire" display, changes the position of the power button, and added bit of hardware to the top and bottom for easier switching of bands.

Lenovo Mobile to be shuttered into Motorola

Lenovo Mobile to be shuttered into Motorola

Just a little over two months since Chen Xudong took over the helm of Lenovo's mobile business, he is making perhaps the biggest announcement to the biggest change in the subsidiary. In the still undisclosed future, Lenovo Mobile will be fully integrated into Motorola and then will cease to exist as a separate and distinct entity. Thia practically makes Motorola THE Lenovo smartphone company, except perhaps for the existence of ZUK. This is in line with Lenovo's plan to let Motorola handle more and more of its mobile operations.

DROID MAXX 2 details leaked in photos

DROID MAXX 2 details leaked in photos

This morning the DROID MAXX 2, also known as the Moto X Play internationally, has appeared in a few leaked photos. This device is also known as the Motorola XT1565, the code for the base of the device that'll be released with different names in different regions. This DROID MAXX 2 for Verizon Wireless will be the only Moto X Play we'll see here in the United States, while the Moto X Style will be released separately, and with more than one carrier.

Moto X Play as DROID Maxx 2, Moto X Style as DROID Turbo 2

Moto X Play as DROID Maxx 2, Moto X Style as DROID Turbo 2

"A rose by any other name" or so the quote goes. It seems that when Motorola says a device is exclusive to one country or isn't coming to another country, it shouldn't be taken too literally. Or in this case, nominally. While the Moto X Play was noted to be unavailable in the US, it might actually just go by another name, the DROID Maxx 2. The Moto X Style, on the other hand, which will be the unlocked Moto X Pure Edition in the US, will take on the DROID Turbo 2 name under Verizon.

Moto 360 2 (possibly) spotted on Chicago train

Moto 360 2 (possibly) spotted on Chicago train

The new Moto 360 may have been spotted being worn by a commuter on a train in Chicago, at least according to the person who snapped a couple pictures of it. We've seen leaks suggested to be of the newest Motorola wearable over the past weeks, such as the one that surfaced on August 14 showing an unexpected device. A couple days later some regulatory documents surfaced from Brazil indicating that next Moto 360 will be available in two different sizes, per consumer feedback.

Next Moto 360 expected to come in two sizes

Next Moto 360 expected to come in two sizes

While the original Moto 360 smartwatch is still easily the best designed Android Wear device, with its simple circular 1.56-inch screen, one common criticism was that it was a little big for those with small wrists. Some recently discovered regulatory documents from Brazil have indicated that Motorola has learned from the feedback and will be releasing the 360's successor in two sizes. This would also follow after Apple's move of releasing the Watch in two sizes, a factor that has contributed to its initial success.

If this is the Moto 360 2, Motorola’s in trouble

If this is the Moto 360 2, Motorola’s in trouble

Earlier today Motorola revealed a new "okay Moto" video showing a version of the Moto 360 that'd they'd never before shown. This version of the device is a prototype, one we've seen one before - in a video from behind the scenes at Motorola's design studio for the Moto 360 and Moto Maker. Here we've got what's essentially the same Moto 360 as before, only the button on the right is now in the upper-right. We still see the "flat tire" of the non-circular display up front, as well as essentially the same functionality as the original.

Lenovo to lay off 10% of staff, let Motorola lead mobile

Lenovo to lay off 10% of staff, let Motorola lead mobile

It feels only like yesterday that Lenovo was celebrating a revenue jump in 2014. Releasing the figures for the first quarter of 2015, however, things have taken a drastic downward turn. Although the company's quarterly revenue saw a 3 percent increase in year-over-year numbers at $10.7 billion, it missed analyst expectations of an $11.29 billion figure. Worse, its actual net income took a steep dive to $105 million, a 50 percent decline from the same period last year. In short, Lenovo needs to take equally drastic measures.

Moto G Review 2015 (3rd Gen)

Moto G Review 2015 (3rd Gen)

Motorola continues to run the low-cost mid-range smartphone game with their 3rd-generation Moto G here in the year 2015. When they released the first Moto G we were skeptical - how could a smartphone that doesn't cost more than a couple hundred dollars be worth using? As it turned out, the device wasn't half bad, and with Motorola's continued software support YEARS later, we've grown nothing but more confident in the company's ability to create the best low-cost smartphone line around.

OnePlus 2 vs Moto X Style – which one “potentially” deserves your money?

OnePlus 2 vs Moto X Style – which one “potentially” deserves your money?

Last week we saw not one but two mid-year racehorses make their way into the smartphone tracks. One an established veteran in the industry, the other almost a David in comparison, both putting out mouthwatering offers. But at the end of the day, unless you have the money to spare, you will choose only one. Is the OnePlus 2 really worthy of all the hype the startup generated? Or was the Moto X Style able to repeat the magic of the original Moto X in 2014? Pending a full blown review, we do a spec and feature side-by-side to get a preliminary appraisal.
