It looks like September is going to be a big month for new mobile devices.
We’ve already heard about a Samsung press event on September 3rd, at which it’s expected that the next Galaxy Note devices will be announced.
Apple is expected to announce the next-gen iPhones, possibly some big screen models, on September 9th.
And there’s a Microsoft event on September 4th, where they’ll probably reveal the next iteration of Windows Phone hardware.
And today, invitations went out for a Motorola event, also on September 4th, complete with a link to a website set up with a tease of the event.
All we know about the Motorola event so far is that it will happen in Chicago on the aforementioned date, and what we can infer from a few clues on the website. The site, so far, consists of not much more than the Motorola logo, and what looks like a few pieces of origami paper.
The paper-folding image is animated, and appears to fold into what we used to call a “fortune-teller” back in the elementary school cafeteria. It bears the slogans “Choose to Discover”, “Choose to Have Fun”, and “Choose a New Experience”. So it seems that “choice” is going to be a theme of the upcoming marketing campaign.
And while they haven’t released any information about what products will be debuted at the September Motorola event, the “fortune teller” does reveal a few clues.
As it scrolls through its cycle of folding and unfolding, the origami image show four small emblems: a phone with an “X” on its screen, an ear with an earpiece in place, a round-faced wristwatch, and another phone with a “G” on its screen.
So I think it’s safe to infer that the devices to be announced will include the long awaited Moto 360, the successors to the very successful Moto G and Moto X phones, and some sort of headphones or earbuds.
As Motorola makes its departure from under the Google umbrella, we’ll be waiting eagerly to see what surfaces at the Motorola event. Keep an eye on this space for updates, and let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
