Motorola struck gold when it launched the Moto G back in 2013, the company delivered a smartphone that was affordable but wouldn't completely embarrass itself in Flagship Company. The original G brought very solid specs and a neat if uninspired design to the masses, the budget phone par excellence. Motorola has now launched the new Moto G, deciding not to change the name at all, but this is the 2014 Moto G, so what's new?
Motorola has been avoiding the hustle and bustle of IFA in Berlin and having a lower key launch of its new products in Chicago. During the event the American company unveiled its brand new flagship, a sequel to the well received and moderately successful Moto X. The handset ups the ante in terms of premium design and has solid specs to match, it is called the Moto X.
After months of waiting Motorola has finally raised the curtain on the Moto 360 smartwatch, arguably the most anticipated tech product of the year. Long before its launch today the 360 has taken its place as the most desirable smartwatch on the market, so now that we know about the device in detail, was it worth the wait and more importantly the fuss?
You may have been wondering why there was no news regarding Motorola today, with the company due to launch its Moto 360, Moto X+1, and Moto G2. The simple fact is, the American brand has decided to keep its Chicago event under wraps, keeping the press event private to those who attend the company's launch in Motorola headquarters
The Moto X+1 has leaked enough times now that when the handset is actually launched in three days' time we will already know most of the things there is to know about it. However, a new detailed shot of the Moto X+1 from TKNews throws up plenty of fresh information about the Motorola flagship and even raises a few new questions.
We told you earlier in the week about a new Motorola device that would be launching on Verizon called the Moto Luge. Judging by the image from a leaked Best Buy sales page and the provided information, we guessed that the device would not be a brand new handset but would either be a Moto X variant or a Moto G LTE exclusive for Verizon.
Sprint has confirmed that the Moto X variant that it carries will now be getting the update to Android 4.4.4, bringing the latest released version of Google's mobile platform to Motorola's 2013 flagship. It is a timely bump as the new Moto X+1 is expected to land on September 4th and that will probably be running Android 4.4.4 from launch.
You thought you knew all there is to know about the upcoming Moto X+1? Well, think again because yet another bit of information has emerged about the handset, although this one can be filed in the rumour pile for the time being. A press quality render of the handset, leaked specs by a retailer, and even material options for the rear case have all ensured that the Moto X+1 is far from a rumour anymore, but the device still has a few secrets it seems.
Motorola has a pretty busy end of the year ahead as the company could be releasing up to eight new smartphones to the market. You can even add a ninth to that as the American brand is teaming up with Verizon to launch the Moto Luge, a handset that will be launched on August 28th.
Motorola's Moto 360 smartwatch is one of the most desirable products of the year and to many it was a new dawn in the wearable market. The 360 had the smartwatch market all for itself simply because it looks premium and also sports a round face, you know, as a watch should. However, Motorola may have made a catastrophic mistake with its strategy as the Moto 360 is no longer alone.
