Motorola is all set to get a control of the smartwatch market by launching the new Moto 360 on Wednesday at the IFA 2015 hosted in Berlin. The new wearable comes with a premium look that is expected to compel trendy users to get it in their collection instead of the traditional watches.
Available in cases of two-different sizes
Keeping in mind the different types of choices, the watch is made available in two different sizes. One of which is priced at $299, while the other is priced at $429. The price will not just vary with the size but also with the type of band users select for their watch. Even though it is a unisex watch, the company has planned 42mm case design for women 42mm as well as 46mm for men. Yet, 42mm watch suits best on slimmer wrist.
Apart from design, the makers are also careful about the sturdiness of the device and has used 316L aircraft-grade stainless steel for its manufacture. The screen is protected with a Corning Gorilla Glass.
While the look of the Moto 360 has created a hype among the users, many are excited to know about the light weight of the device. Though the device has been unveiled officially, it can now be booked only in the United States as global launch is planned in the coming days. The price may also change during the global launch. … Read the rest

With the release date of Motorola handsets round the corner, fans can’t wait to get a glimpse of the much-hyped Moto X. While rumors related to the specifications of the handset are ripe, a leaked image of the phone claims to confirm its look.
Moto X leaked picture at a glance
The leaked image of Moto X uploaded on Android Peru’s Facebook page shows a front-facing flash on the right side of the handset. This is the first thing that grabs people’s attention. However, there is also a black panel on the device, which is also expected to lure buyers. The image sourced by Jose Vasquez Ruiz also confirms earlier rumors regarding the textured panel of the device.
This leaked image hints toward a good-looking Moto X. Other reports on the web also indicate that it will be a power-packed phone operating on the Android 5.1.1 platform.

Motorola smartphones are creating hype in the smartphone market that is already dominated by Samsung, Xiaomi or Apple. Though Motorola initially slowed down with smartphone manufacturing, the company has bounced back and is ready to launch two phones toward the end of July, or more precisely on July 28. With the launch date coming closer, several rumors are splurging up on the web regarding the price or specifications of Moto G and latest reports that are available indicates Moto G to be waterproof.
Moto G to be water-resistant but not dust-proof
Water and dust are often found to be the most common reasons for the malfunctioning of phones. Therefore, the reports of Mobile Syrup that Moto G is expected to be water-resistant has delighted many Moto fans, who are anxiously waiting for the arrival of the new handsets.
According to the reports, Moto G has IPX-7 certification, which means it can resist water for 30 minutes or till 1 meter. Though the leaked pictures indicate the phone to be water-resistant, it does not give any clear indication on dust-proofing of the phone. So, users need to ensure that their phones are safe from dust. However, there is still no confirmation regarding the launch of the phone and people will have to wait for official announcement or till the phone comes on shelves.
Motorola has sent invites to the media for the launch of its Moto X and Moto G third-gen handsets to be held in New Delhi on July 28. The event at the Indian capital will be the first in the line for events at Sao Paulo (Brazil), London and New York. Moto G 2015 edition is expected to score a hit in the Brazilian and Indian markets while the upcoming Moto X might fare better in the US and markets in Europe.
Moto G 3rd Gen Specs
We also sniffed out the Moto G 3rd generation on Flipkart with a list of its specifications. However, it was revealed that the listing was only a matter of accident. As per the specs though, you may expect the new Moto G to have 8GB storage onboard and will run on 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 610 processor. 2 GB RAM will account for quick boot speeds on the 5/5.2 incher display that comes with full HD resolution. In addition, expect 4G LTE support and a polycarbonate style body in white hue.
What Motorola Says?
Motorola has also put this text up on its website- “Yes. We’re in a relationship with our phone. We feel lost without it. We trust them with our most personal questions, photos, stories and secrets. They never leave our side. But shouldn’t all that care and devotion you show be returned?”
Motorola is expected to make a great move in the smartphone market by introducing two handsets at the same time. According to the company statement made this week, both Moto G and Moto X are slated for an official release on July 28. While the company is not interested in revealing any other update about the handsets, leaked images of the phones give some hint regarding their features, reports Techradar.
Moto X anticipated features
Moto G photos have been already doing round in web for some time and now sources have also revealed some pictures of Moto X. The leaked image indicates the phone to have a similar design to that of 2015 Moto G and both the handsets come with a metallic trim highlighting the back. Yet, the texture of the back panels are not the same and Moto X is said to have metallic bezel.
While the leaked images do not give a proper impression of the front side, the handset is reported to feature an impressive 5.2-inches Quad HD display. Not only that, the flagship phone is also reported to be made powerful with Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB RAM and 16/32 GB storage. 16MP rear camera is also mention worthy. Yet, there is no definite report on the naming of the phone and for that everyone need to wait till July 28.
While we are awaiting the release of the Moto G next month, latest leak reveals a major change in design on the back panel. The pattern does not seem to have changed much as per the new leak but the LED Flash is located in a different place than where we had spotted it earlier. We also spotted a trim in metallic body that is stretched out till the place where this logo for Motorola is placed. The new leak reveals a patterned back instead of a clear one that we had seen in the earlier second generation model.
What The Leak Reveals?
A leaked image we saw reveals a design that almost reminds us of the 2014 Moto G. This also goes for the pair of speaker grills. The part at the top edge of the new Moto G with the headphone jack is similar to the Nexus 6. Gear up to shop the budget ware at only Rs 9,999 on Flipkart. For now the phone will come visiting only this August.
The Specs Revealed
The main specs of the Moto G are a 5-incher screen with 720p display powered by a 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 410 processor. As for the snapper, expect 13MP on the back and 5MP on the front.
Buzz has it that Motorola is coordinating with Google to develop a fingerprint scanner technology for the upcoming Google Nexus 6. However, now the official stance has made it clear that the next Nexus phone will not have this feature. On another end, fresh rumors have emerged stating that an upcoming Moto X variant will soon arrive. This one will be loaded with a fingerprint scanner, according to what was spotted in an early pre-production model for Moto X.
This has been spotted in an assembly line of the product. What is surprising is that the scanner is placed behind the hood–under the camera sensor.
Perhaps it is too early to confirm this as the scanner that was ditched at the last minute on the Nexus 6.
Looking at the past, Motorola initiated the tradition of fingerprint scanners with the Atrix 4G model about half a decade ago. With Android M aiding fingerprint scans in the current time it will only be apt for Motorola to feature it once again!
