    It's happening. One of the best phones of 2013 is getting a refresh, and the whole tech world seems quite excited about it. With last year's Moto X, Motorola brought thinking that was way different than many of the other OEMs out there – it proved that phones didn't have to have top-tier specs and a boatload of software features in order to shine. It proved that a great phone doesn't have to look great on paper, so we're naturally looking forward to the successor to that product. The new Moto X (or perhaps the Moto X+1, as it may be called) is only a few days away, so we decided to ...

    Motorola's upcoming product announcements are starting to feel like they're a done deal already. What hasn't been nearly confirmed by Motorola itself through some not-too-subtle-at-all invite imagery, we've been piecing together ourselves thanks to no shortage of rumors and leaks. Those leaks have really been stepping things up in recent days, helping to answer some of our outstanding questions about this hardware. But this morning we switch gears from hardware details to pricing info, spotting a couple of these Moto handsets revealing their worth to India's Zauba import database. This ...

    What a better way to start September off than with a juicy leak of the soon-to-be-unveiled successor to the Moto X. Today a supposed Moto X+1 video leak has hit the web, and it lines up with everything we've seen before – and a lot of what we're expecting to see – though there are still questions being asked. The leak comes to us from TK Tech News, which has been hit-or-miss but relatively accurate with previous Motorola leaks (like the one where the Moto Luge was brought to light). The leak itself unfortunately doesn't tell us as much as we'd like, but we do get a few critical bits ...

    The new Moto X will be going official this week, but we're all still thirsty for information regarding the device. One thing we've thought was almost certain since the leak train started rolling in early April was the name: in one of the first leaks of the phone, the name "Moto X+1" was dropped, and in subsequent leaks it came up over and over again. Today, though, we're hearing new information, as the name may not be Moto X+1 at all. According to sources of Phandroid at Verizon, the company's internal computer system shows the device simply as "The new Moto X." This isn't all that ...

    The Moto X, as modest and bland as it appeared on paper, was, by and large, one of the most impressive smartphones of 2013. Unlike most new phones, I could recommend it to buyers without a sliver of doubt. While its camera wasn't all that great and the specs were far from the best, it was an incredibly solid, well-rounded smartphone with lots of lightweight value adds in the software. This came as a surprise to most when the Moto X was finally revealed. The months leading up to its announcement, the so-called X Phone (or XFON) was rumored to come with all the best specifications possible ...

    When Motorola's Moto X+1 finally launches – which all present evidence is pointing towards happening next week, we're hoping to get confirmation of a bunch of new custom backplate options. Already, Motorola's given us a rainbow of colors and a handful of wooden finishes to choose from for the Moto X, and right from the start of X+1 rumors, we've been hearing about the phone picking up some additional materials. Namely, we could be looking at leather options, including a choice of colors, and just last week we spotted some retailer evidence that seemed to support the idea of this new ...

    Who's ready for a little Funkausstellung? We're about a week away from the start of IFA 2014, where mobile device manufacturers from all around the world will descend on Berlin to show off their newest products. The F in IFA –Funkausstellung– may translate as “radio show,” but the expo has evolved far beyond its early audio roots to feature the very latest in smartphones, tablets, and wearables. The Pocketnow team will be on the ground in Germany to share with you everything IFA 2014 has to deliver (or at least, everything worth seeing) but before we send our boys abroad, we wanted ...

    Earlier this week, rumors about Google's follow-up to the Nexus 5 took a turn. We had already been talking about the idea of Motorola manufacturing this hardware, and after rumors bounced around the theory that we could be looking at a 5.9-inch phablet-sized handset, they settled back at a slightly more mainstream 5.2-inch screen size. But all of a sudden, it looked like we might not be getting the Nexus 6 we assumed would we be on the menu, and instead the phone would arrive as the Nexus X – a name we'd been tossing around a year prior in the lead-up to the release of the Moto X. Today ...

    Going back a little over a month now, we've been hearing whispers about Motorola's work towards a new Moto G. From the sound of things, this second-gen model (a Moto G2, perhaps?) would make some big changes, growing to offer a five-inch 720p display – though that could also mean the phone arriving with a noticeably steeper price tag than its predecessor did last year. Motorola's invitation for its September 4 press event makes a new Moto G launch look like a near-certainty, and as we wait for our chance to go hands-on with this hardware ourselves, we've got a new leak to check out, ...

    The Moto X+1 should be among us in the next couple of weeks. There is a lot of pressure for this phone to live up to the market acceptance that the Moto X never reached with its unique features. Even if Motorola would decide to only fix a couple of quirks, the Moto X is still ahead of its time, and reports claim that the Moto X+1 will push the bar even further. One of the biggest complaints we had with the Moto X was its camera, and trusted sources claim that Motorola has found a way to fit optical zoom into the camera of the Moto X+1. We're not exactly sure how the company will pull this ...

    Overnight, we shared with you news of what looked like yet another in a growing number of Motorola Androids nearly ready to launch, the Moto Luge for Verizon. There was mention of an intriguing new service called Moto Aware, and we looked forward to learning more about the hardware. But now a little more info on this model has managed to make its way public, and the story it's putting together is one that's feeling less and less interesting. What's the problem? The Moto Luge appears to be little more than a re-branded RAZR M, a smartphone that launched a solid two years ago. When we first ...

    Last year, with the launch of the Moto X, Motorola introduced its Skip NFC accessory. The little tag could be used to quickly unlock the smartphone, although our hands-on found Skip a little awkward to use. With the Moto X+1 expected for next week, will Skip once again be a featured accessory? A new leak FCC publication suggest that Motorola's been cooking-up a totally redesigned second-generation Skip, and this one adds a bunch of new features by way of bringing Bluetooth support to the device. While the first Skip was an entirely passive NFC tag, the new Skip would be a battery-powered ...

    The news is in: LG is making a round smartwatch, the G Watch R. Motorola also has round Android Wear aspirations in the form of the Moto 360 – so which will be the Android Wear watch to buy? It's tough to tell until we get review units in-house, but we all have very basic first impressions of both, so we decided to put the question to you: LG G Watch R or Moto 360? We don't know much about the two watches, other than the fact that they are round and (most probably, in the case of the LG) run Android Wear as their operating system. They both are easily more normal than the other two ...

    In case you haven't noticed, it really looks like Motorola is getting wild this year. Apart from the rumors surrounding the new Moto X and G iterations, leaks of new Verizon Droids and the Nexus X have also been fairly bountiful. But news out of left field has hit us today, as Motorola may have teamed up with Verizon to create the Moto Luge, and launch day may be just later this week. According to a source of TK Tech News at Best Buy, this phone will be "specifically marketed to Verizon Prepaid customers," and there's support baked-in for Verizon's newly switched-on prepaid LTE ...

    Rumors have been flying that Motorola has been chosen to make the next Nexus iteration, and most (if not all) called the phone the Nexus 6 – it's the sixth Nexus phone to be made, and it's also rumored to have a 5.9-inch screen size. Today we're seeing a report that looks to partially shoot down these earlier rumors, as the Motorola Nexus X name leaks for the first time. According to unacknowledged sources of PhoneArena, the phone will be named Motorola Nexus X (as we said earlier), and it will allegedly have the Motorola model number XT1100. This leads us to think the earlier report ...
