Motorola Planning Exciting New Launch


It looks like we might be getting a pre-MWC surprise this week, after several reports stated that Motorola is planning to make an ‘exciting’ announcement ahead of the event.

Motorola has started emailing different members of the press, informing them of a package that will be delivered to offices on February 25th.

Little other information is given about the contents of the box, but the Lenovo-owned company has confirmed that everything we need will be safely tucked inside.

What’s in the Box?

Nothing has been leaked or revealed ahead of the mysterious new launch, leaving us guessing as to what Motorola might be giving us inside its tech packages.

Whilst it’s a long shot, a successor to the Moto X could be on the cards, getting the jump on every device planning to launch at MWC in just under a weeks’ time.

Could we see the next Moto X phone?

Others suggest that it may be a brand new product line on the smartphone market, possibly being a high-end or budget offering. However, considering that we’ve seen or heard nothing of a new phone, it would be surprising.

The most common suggestion comes as the device being a follow-up to the Moto 360 smartwatch – which proved such a hit at its launch.

With plenty of manufacturers getting involved with the wearable market, it would be no surprise to see a refreshed device coming from Motorola.

The likes of the Apple Watch and the HTC Wear could be major players when they appear on the market this year, effectively outclassing Motorola if it was to stick with the 360.

The Moto 360 was critically acclaimed thanks to its smart design and impressive performance. One issue which was problematic however was its battery life, so if Motorola irons out that problem we’d certainly be thankful.

However, nothing is set in stone just yet, so we’ll just have to wait and see what we get from the company.

Pre-MWC Treat

Will we see a Moto 360 follow-up device?

If you aren’t lucky enough to be on Motorola’s exclusive shipping list, then it’s very likely that you’ll get a good chance to take a look at the upcoming device at MWC.

The show kicks off on March 2nd, with many manufacturers using the day before as a chance to hold their individual press conferences.

Either way, the floor will open up to the general public on the first day of the show – as long as you purchase a ticket and fly over to Barcelona.

You’ll be able to get your hands on whatever Motorola reveal, and even give it a go if they have working demos of the device.

Of course, if you’re at the event you’ll also get access to all of the new releases, which are set to include the HTC One M9 and Samsung Galaxy S6.

So, what do you think Motorola is planning on offering to us with this pre-MWC announcement? Let us know on Facebook, Twitter or Google+.
