Motorola holding event on September 4th: Moto G 2, X+1, and 360 on the way

Motorola holding event on September 4th: Moto G 2, X+1, and 360 on the way
We know that there are at least three new Motorola devices in the pipeline, and now we have a date for when we're going to hear about some , if not all of those devices. Motorola has begun sending out media invitations for an event to be held on September 4th in Chicago. The question is: what will be announced at this event?

The most recent rumors have said that the Moto G2 has a release date of September 10th; and, assuming that is true, it is basically a given that the G2 will be seen at this upcoming event. But, if the teaser image for the event has anything to say about it, that won't be all that's on the docket. The teaser image (seen above) has four devices shown - the next Moto X, the Moto 360, the Moto G2, and what appears to be a Bluetooth earpiece. So, it seems reasonable to assume we'll be seeing the announcements for all of those devices. 

Announcements are one thing, and release dates are another. The only rumor we have for the X+1 puts the release date around September 25th, but manufacturers rarely will announce something a full three weeks before releasing it. So, that makes us think that either the Verizon Moto X+1 rumor was wrong, or Verizon might be getting the device later than other carriers. 

Motorola is also jumping in head first to a very busy announcement time. Samsung has an event planned for September 3rd, where we expect to see the Galaxy Note 4 and maybe also the Gear Solo. Then, September 4th is the start of IFA in Berlin, where Asus is expected to announce its first Android Wear device, and Microsoft is expected to announce a new Lumia devices, including the so-called "selfie phone". Then, on September 9th, Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 6. That's a packed stretch, let's see if Motorola can make an impact.

Well, they cropped it and made it a thumbnail image. I don't know if that's all that clever, but it is something...

If your not a developer and don't root your phones or tinker, then the Moto X+1 will better. Not to mention the unique things like the active notifications and Amoled display will be on the Moto X+1, Moto Assist, spotlight, and a few other that are all unique to Motorola. Nexus devices are stock devices without any OEM or Carrier bloatware. The cameras are both 12 mp on the Moto X+1 and the nexus 6, which leads me to believe that they are the same camera.

Me 2 but I hope this time Moto are not stupid & release the Moto x+1 in the UK sooner & the 32gb version this time.

I'm in the same perdicament. But like StraightEdgeNexus, I'll probably got with the Moto X + 1. Loved the original X, but I felt like it was such a downgrade in certain areas to my HTC One (M7).

okay, we'be got a lot to be excited about right there around the same time. watch Google announce their announcement right there at the same time if they haven't changed their mind already. I guess Motorola plans to unveil the new Droida closer to the Holidays.

Of course they do. They'll be announcing the Z3 in September, Z4 in November and Z5 in December. Didn't you know? They're going to a new 12 flagships per year release schedule!

Little old lady walks into the cell phone store Lady: I need a new phone. I heard there's a good one, I don't remember the name, it has an 'S' and a '5" in it. Clerk: Ok, do you want the 5S or the S5? Lady: I don't know. What's the difference? Clerk: They're both good, but expensive. Lady: I don't want to spend a lot. Just give me a G2. Clerk: Which one? Lady: Huh? Clerk: There are two G2's. One from LG and one from Motorola. Lady: I can't decide. How about a One? Clerk: Which One? The first One or the second One? Lady: First one what? Clerk: The first one One or the second one One. Lady: Why isn't the second one the Two? Clerk: I don't know. Lady. Forget the one. How about an X? Clerk: Which one? Nokia or Moto? Lady: I'm out of here...
