Motorola Moto 360 smartwatch to feature OLED screen and wireless charging?

Following the timepiece’s formal unveiling earlier this week, latest reports have suggested the Motorola Moto 360 smartwatch will benefit from an OLED screen and wireless charging capabilities.

Having been announced in the wake of Google’s Android Wear announcement, Motorola has teasingly offered up some tantalising images and a few top line details on the Samsung Gear 2 rival, with a range of tipsters now looking to fill in the blanks.

Citing an unnamed “leakster” with a “flawless track record when it comes down to Motorola,” GforGames has claimed that the Motorola Moto 360’s impressive watch-like round display will benefit from an OLED panel and protective Sapphire Glass coating.

What’s more, the Android Wear powered watch, which will go head-to-head with the equally real but equally mysterious LG G Watch, will reportedly host magnetic induction wireless charging capabilities.

With the OLED panel, which offers deeper blacks and better power management than LCD displays, sure to aid the Moto 360’s battery life, the wireless charging will make for easier recharging than the likes of the bespoke dock requiring Samsung Galaxy Gear.

The Motorola Moto 360 will run Google’s Android Wear – a wearbles orientated take on its market-leading mobile OS – and feature a splash proof body.

Although there is currently no word on a Motorola Moto 360 release date or pricing, early details of this innovative smartphone have us excited. We can’t wait for more official details.
