Moto X (2015) should be released around August / September, suggests Motorola President
Believe it or not, the second-generation Moto X (pictured) is now six months old, and a new model should be released sometime later this year. But when exactly? Well, we don't know exactly when, but it looks like it won't happen in the first half of the year (in case anyone was expecting this).

Rick Osterloh, Motorola's President, today confirmed that the company's trying "to stay on a roughly annual cycle for all of our products, including Moto X." Since the previous Moto X models were introduced in August and September, respectively, that's when we should expect to see the third-gen Moto X.

Last month, Motorola and Qualcomm confirmed that a new Moto flagship smartphone powered by a Snapdragon 810 processor would be introduced this year. Most likely, this will be the next-gen Moto X (unless things somehow take a surprising turn). If a recent rumor is to be believed, the new Moto X could be "smarter than any other smartphone", though for now we don't know what that might mean.

Just like the current Moto X, the upcoming Motorola flagship smartphone should be customizable via Moto Maker, running near stock Android (probably the latest version that will be available at the time of its launch). Well, we're looking forward to seeing what Motorola can do with its next flagship.

few times I've seen people bashing the 810, and you seem to have 6 people that agree with you... could I ask what it is that you feel it is about it that sucks?

Well, it may be due to other things than the SD810, but I believe it is what causes the htc one m9 to have poor battery life compared to what it could have.

This, or the next Nexus, will certainly be my next phone. Really enjoying the fact I'm already running 5.1 before even some Nexus devices.

I'm still yet to see a phone with an S808 chipset...I'd be nice if they choose to use that.

Hopefully they come out with a 4.7" variant, I can't imagine using anything bigger than my trusty Moto X (2013)...

Rick Osterloh said he isn't going to do that and he's content with the current size of 5.2 inches

They have one job and thats to get the damn camera(s) right!
They're gonna stuff it up aren't they? Sigh.
That stupid giant dimple will probably make a return too.
