IFA 2014 is just a few weeks away in Berlin and tech companies are preparing the gizmos they’re due to launch at the event. And Motorola’s decided that’s the best time to out a range of devices by issuing a press invite for a products launch event in Chicago on 4 September.
If you’re itching to know what was on its invite, the hints are very clear. As shown by little icons on a paper origami, Motorola’s got in store for us new smartphones, an in-ear wearable, as well as a smartwatch.
By this, we’re pretty certain we’re going to see the launch of the Motorola G2 and the Motorola X+1, as well as the eagerly anticipated Moto 360. What still remains a mystery to us is the in-ear wearable it’s intending to launch.
We haven’t yet gotten any wind of an in-ear wearable Motorola’s working on – could it be a Bluetooth headset? Or perhaps a set of in-ear wireless headphones? We can only speculate for now. As for the other three devices, they’ve either been announced or have rumours surrounding them.
A closer look..
The Moto 360 smartwatch was announced sometime in March and since then, Motorola has been keeping us teased with a series of trailers of the round-faced wearable. What’s for sure is that it will have a metal body, and wireless charging capabilities.
As for the Moto X+1, word’s out on the street that the smartphone will be Motorola’s next flagship powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset (with a 2.5 GHz quad-core CPU). It’s also said to sport a 5.1in or 5.2in display with 1080p resolution, 2GB of RAM and a 12 MP rear snapper.
The Moto G2 is said to be a 5in, dual-SIM device with 720p display resolution, 1GB of RAM, an 8MP rear camera, as well as a Snapdragon 400 chipset with a quad-core 1.2GHz Cortex-A7 CPU.
But we’ll have to wait for the launch day itself to see what exactly Motorola has been keeping under wraps.
