Motorola Moto G2 set for September 4 unveiling alongside Moto 360 and X+1

Motorola is looking to keep track with the big boys of the smartphone scene, revealing it will unveil the Moto G 2 and the Moto X 1 on September 4.

With Samsung, Sony and Huawei all expected to unveil new flagship phones the same week, and with the iPhone 6 to follow later the same month, Motorola has issued invites to its own September 4 launch event.

Depicting a paper fortune teller, the Motorola invite has teased four new devices, one on each of the origami toy’s four corners.

As well as a phone emblazoned with the letter G (presumably to represent a Moto G follow-on) and a second handset adorned with an X (the heavily rumoured Moto X 1), the American manufacturer has teased a round faced smartwatch (the confirmed but still mysterious Moto 360).

The fourth section suggests that the manufacturer will introduce a new Bluetooth headset. The invite is adorned with the teasing slogan “Choose to discover. Choose to have fun. Choose a new experience.”

Although taking place during the same time as the Berlin-based IFA conference, Motorola is looking to steal some of the attention, going out on its down with an unveiling event in Chicago.

The Moto G2 unveiling will take place the day after both the Sony Xperia Z3 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 are given their formal introductions.

The Moto 360 is one of the most eagerly awaited gadgets of the moment. As well as its revolutionary round display, the Android Wear powered smartwatch is set to feature wireless charging capabilities, an integrated pedometer and a stunning, high-end, metal design.

Stay tuned for all the latest on what Motorola is bringing to market on September 4.
