Motorola to reveal Moto 360, X+1, G2 at September 4 event

moto event sept 4

Most of the rumours crowding the internet for the past month have been gravitating around Apple and the iPhone 6. Finally, there’s some relief for both Cupertino and those sick of hearing about glowing logos. Motorola is rumoured to be launching its eagerly awaited Moto 360 smartwatch, Moto X+1 and Moto G2 smartphones next month.

In a new, official website dubbed newfrommoto, the company seemingly toys with the media with a paper fortune teller, which would make school children across the land squeal with delight.

Once the flash page finally opens, a little message suggests the event will take place in Chicago, 4 September. And that’s all the information the company dares reveal.

Motorola Moto G

It’s about time the Moto360 was released, because we’re quite sick of waiting. Lucky tech gurus have acquired the watch recently, most famously “Mister Gadget” Luca Viscardi himself. According to his thoughts, and ours, the watch will likely be an absolute stunner. You can read all about that particular review here.

Additionally, the Moto X+1 will allegedly sport a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 Soc, 2GB RAM, and a particularly gorgeous rear encased in wood — an equally excitable prospect.

And lastly, the Moto G2 (above) will cater for slightly more budget-minded folk, although Motorola don’t shirk on capable hardware. Internals rumoured include an ARM V7 quad-core SoC with Adreno 305 graphics and dual SIM slots. The phone will also feature a 1280×720 screen and an 8MP camera. Nothing else has been spoken of thus far, but we could easily see 2GB RAM, Bluetooth 4.0 LE and an LTE radio paired alongside the device.
