While last year's Motorola DROID Turbo was widely dismissed, we were actually huge fans. It looked solid, had blazing specs, and had one of the very best smartphone batteries on the market. Motorola has shown this year that it can do a bona fide flagship very well; the Moto X Pure Edition is spiffing, and we knew that was the basis for the DROID Turbo 2. That means you can color us excited.
We smell something in the air. We have noticed that just before Motorola is tipped to announce a new smartphone there is a sizeable leak that confirms the handset in no doubt. That has happened again with the rumored DROID MAXX 2 as an email from inside Motorola seems to confirm the device, unless the company is trolling us.
The Motorola Force is also the Motorola Kinzie and the Motorola XT1585, while consumers in the United States are probably going to call it the DROID Turbo 2. Whatever the name of this device is, it will almost certainly be a beast, at least judging by the specs that were revealed as the handset passed through China's 3C certification website.
Motorola has updated its Motorola Connect app and brought plenty of new goodies to its Moto 360. The app for the Google Play Store allows users to update their devices and customize them, and now it is available for the newly launched Moto 360 2015.
When we first heard about the Moto Bounce a few months ago we called it as the next Motorola/Verizon DROID device. Yeah we are pretty much patting ourselves on the back here as the device that has since been known as the Moto X Force is reportedly going to be announced as the new Verizon DROID Turbo 2 in the next few months.
Motorola has launched its new wearables the Moto 360 (2015) and the Moto 360 Sport, and once again the company is vying to offer the smartwatch that most people want. Only the Apple Watch enjoyed more hype than Motorola's original Moto 360, so much is expected from the sequel to what was the round faced wearable of choice for many. For the most part the 360 (2015) and the Sport succeed on building on the original, but they are also hampered by the same pitfalls as all smartwatches.
Motorola has already launched the majority of its smartphone output for the year, but the company is not finished with products entirely. It has now been announced that the Moto 360 2 will be launched September 8th, with Motorola?s parent company Lenovo sending out invites for a media event.
Motorola has not released many smartphone over the last few years, preferring to stick to a core few handsets in the Moto and DROID ranges... oh yes, there was also the Nexus 6. However, under Lenovo?s wing the company has more backing and security so can experiment with more smartphone releases. Which brings us nicely to the Motorola Bounce.
Motorola is widely expected to launch a follow-up to the Moto 360 smartwatch, which was probably the best Android Wear device so far. However, while we are plenty excited about that, we are also eager to see Motorola's other new wearable, an apparent Moto 360 Sport.
Motorola announced the frankly amazing Moto X Style (Pure Edition in the US) two weeks ago and impressed many with a smartphone flagship that is decked out for top specs and carries a stunning $400 price tag. There are so many things going for the Moto X Pure Edition that we think it will be a no brainer for many, and consumers will be able to get the handset on September 3rd. Motorola confirmed that launch date today while reiterating that the device will cost $399.99 at the base level.
