New Moto 360 smartwatch to come in two sizes?

Anatel filing for Motorola 360LRegulatory filings can be great sources of information about upcoming products. The U.S.’ FCC and China’s TENAA are but two examples of such sites where new products have been spotted before being announced. Now, Anatel, Brazil’s National Telecommunications Agency (Agência Nacional de Telecomunicações in Portuguese) appears to have revealed that there will be two variants of the new Moto 360 smartwatch.

As is so often the case, there is little information to be obtained from Anatel about these new devices. Identified as the Motorola 360L and 360S, 9to5Google surmises that the new Moto 360 will be available in two sizes.

The documentation does confirm that both will come with Bluetooth LE and 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity. The 360S will sport a 270mAh battery while the 360L will have a 375mAh one, giving credence that it could be a larger model. Both batteries are listed as internal and non-removeable.

One complaint against the original Moto 360 was its size. Offering a smaller model would be one way to broaden the appeal of the second-generation model, especially if the larger one once again uses a 1.56-inch display.

We recently glimpsed what could well be the new Moto 360 when Motorola last week tweeted (and quickly deleted) a short video showing a smartwatch we had not seen before.

Motorola is widely expected to launch the new Moto 360 in late summer or early fall. The accidental posting of what is likely a new promotional video certainly adds credence to this timeline.
