Invitation to July 28th event confirms that two Motorola Moto X models will be announced

Invitation to July 28th event confirms that two Motorola Moto X models will be announced
Back in early June was when we first heard a rumor that Motorola would be releasing two versions of the Motorola Moto X this year. A 5.2-inch Moto X would be accompanied by a 5.7-inch unit. According to those in the know, it would appear that only Verizon has shown interest in the larger model. Still, it does appear as though two Moto X models will be unveiled on July 28th. And this is actually confirmed by a clever little hint posted by the company on its invitation to the global event, which is taking place a week from this coming Tuesday.

On the invitation sign off, Motorola appears to write XOX which would mean something along the lines of "Hugs and Kisses." This would be appropriate at the end of an invitation that reads, "Your relationship status is about to change." 

But if you take a closer look at the letters, the XOX actually appears to be XGX. That seems to be a hint that we will see the third-generation Motorola Moto G and two Third-generation Motorola Moto X models unveiled on the 28th. Besides the new Moto phones, we also could see Motorola take the wraps off a new Motorola DROID model for Verizon.

These will be the first Motorola Moto and DROID handsets coming from Motorola that contain Lenovo's influence. It will be interesting to see what is actually unveiled on the 28th.

Funny you should say that, Their past two Moto X phones have their short comings, but they're heavily regarded as some of the better phones on the market when they're released. I have on many occasions shared with you dozens of links to reviews around the web backing up my statement. I still have my 2013 Moto X and it's an awesome phone, the camera is not the best but it's good enough for capturing nice shots in good lighting, and the battery lasts it through the entire day, and is in no way an issue, unless you use your smartphone exclusively for gaming. You have never expressed any interest in Motorola phones but you continue to time after time post comments on Moto related articles simply for the sake of irritating the people that visit this site. Please stop.

No one cares Scott. Stop getting your panties in a twist. Even Sniggly doesn't complain as much as you.

But its a known fact that you Mxyzptlk hate everything Android related. So its a known fact that you will always be there to troll. Like you are now. The last two Moto X's were excellent. I hope they release the new Moto 360 as well.

S810 is unavoidable. This whole year has been a wipe for Android, with the exception of Samsung, all beacuse Qualcomm went and screwed it for them. And it's a shame because Motorola has some good ideas in their stable. Hopefully the phone ends up being the best device it can be despite the S810.

The new release of the 810 is said to have solved the over heating issues, it might be a bit under clocked as a result, but it shouldn't impact the qualities of a Moto X that everyone actually values. It'll still be a responsive device.

You're in denial.

Should go with an S808 or an Exynos. 810 is already a bad sign.

Can't wait to see how the camera will be.

Well, reports are leaking that both the camera and battery will see massive upgrades... I'm holding my breath to see an overall well rounded device.

Conspiracy theorist much? I do hope they announce the Moto X though. Even though it just got 5.1, I think it's time for my Moto X 2013 to be replaced.

I think it's anything but a confirmation, but I am pretty confident that there will be two models of varying sizes. Personally, I'm going for the larger one.

So that supposition is actually a confirmation?

Everyone loved their Moto Display, Moto Voice, twist to launch camera features of the first model, the inferred cameras, custom Google Now catch phrase, chopping motion to activate flashlight features of the second generation model... I'm actually most excited about having all of those custom features and whatever else they have planned for the third generation Moto X. All phones eventually suffer from dated hardware, but it's features like these that really make the user experience a great one.

True words! I hope Motorola will improve these features further and if battery life receives an upgrade and is quite good it will be a very tough decision between the new Moto X and an upcoming Nexus.

agree! though they'll really have to step up bigtime with the camera. lg and especially huawei i think are really going to make it hard not to go nexus.
