Motorola has scheduled a Sept. 4 launch event for Chicago, where the company is expected to launch its Moto 360 watch as well as, potentially, other devices.
An invitation from the company featured a brief glimpse of a watch icon, as well as icons for an ear, a phone with an X on it and a phone with a G on it. (Motorola's two main phones are the Moto X and Moto G.) Motorola had promised that the Moto 360 would launch this summer.
It has been a year since the Moto X hit the market, so the company would seem to be due for a successor. Images have leaked of what is said to be the X2 or X+1 or whatever Motorola ends up calling it.
Motorola's event adds to an already crowded week for device launches, with Samsung slated to launch the next Galaxy Note and other goodies on Sept. 3. Microsoft's Lumia unit has an event planned for Berlin on Sept. 4, while Apple has its iPhone launch for Sept. 9.
Plus, it's an interesting time for Motorola, what with the company in the process of being sold by Google to Lenovo.
