Motorola press event for September 4 hints at new smartphones, smartwatch and accessory

Lenovo-owned Motorola has finally confirmed that it’ll hold a press event to launch new products with the conference being scheduled for September 4. The invites have started to roll out and unlike other OEMs such as Sony and Samsung, the venue isn’t set for the IFA in Berlin, but for Chicago.

While invites from other companies vaguely hint at what are going to be launched, the ones sent by Motorola have confirmed which devices are getting unveiled on September 4. The animated GIF you see below (courtesy of The Verge), shows 4 devices – Two smartphones, a watch and a Bluetooth headset.

If you pay close attention, one smartphone has the letter G written in it, while the other has the letter X. This clearly, points to the successors to the Moto G and Moto X handsets. There’s no word on what the new Bluetooth headset will be called and the watch is obviously the Moto 360.

The successor to the Moto G is said to go official as either the G2 or G+1. The handset will be a small upgrade over its predecessor where it will have the same processor and memory provisions, but a larger 5-inch display and an upgraded rear camera of 8MP. Coming to the Moto X successor, the phone has been spotted with some beefy specs.

Here are the leaked Moto X+1 specifications:

– Android 4.4.4 KitKat
– 5.2-inch 1080p display
– 2.5GHz quad core Snapdragon 801 SOC
– 2GB RAM, 32GB storage
– 12MP rear camera
– 2900mAh battery

So that’s four Motorola devices set for launch on September 4 which means the new Droids for Verizon could get unveiled at a different event.
