Moto G2, X2 and 360: What to expect from Motorola's 4 September event

Motorola is holding a media event in Chicago on 4 September, where it is widely expected to announce new versions of the Moto X and Moto G smartphones, as well as provide more details on the upcoming Moto 360 smartwatch.

The event takes place on the same day as the IFA technology trade show in Berlin, where Samsung, Sony, LG, Huawei and others are expected to reveal new smartphones, tablets and wearable devices.

The invitation doesn’t explicitly say what the event will feature, but includes sketches of two phones with X and G written on them, along with a watch - these of course are thought to be second-generation Moto X and Moto G handsets, and the Moto 360 watch.

Critics praised both the Moto G and Moto X for offering quality hardware and unmodified versions of Android on a budget, both at the mid-range and high-end of the smartphone market.

Specifications claiming to be for the Moto G2 leaked last week and point towards a 5-inch screen, up from 4.5-inches on the current Moto G, and an improved camera, up from five to eight megapixels.

Meanwhile, the second generation Moto X is, according to leaked specifications, set to have a 5.2-inch Full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080, a quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 2-megapixel front camera and a 12-megapixel rear shooter.

As we all know, the Moto 360 is a smartwatch running Google’s Android Wear operating system, it features a round screen and a design widely acknowledged as the best-looking smartwatch to date. We expect to see a firm release date and price from Motorola.
