Motorola shares plans for July 28 phone event

Motorola sure appears to be working on a number of new handsets, as recent leaks have been only too willing to reveal. We’ve not only had the opportunity to check out a bunch of newly leaked photos, but finally started closing in on a launch date, with a rumor suggesting that at least one of these models – the next-gen Moto G – could be getting ready to make its debut on July 28. Today that date picks up some official backing, as Motorola starts sending out announcements for a launch event.

As you can see above, Motorola warns us that our relationship status (with our phones, that is) is about to change, and asks that we tune in to its live-streamed press event on the morning of July 28. We don’t see it directly confirm any specific models, but that hugs-and-kisses sign-off “XOX” almost looks like “XGX” to our eyes, and could be read as suggesting we’ll get both the new Moto G and new Moto X – or maybe we’re just seeing what we want to.

On the page the company makes reference to, it continues with its message: “We feel lost without it. We trust them with our most personal questions, photos, stories and secrets. They never leave our side. But shouldn’t all that care and devotion you show be returned? A better mobile relationship is on its way.” There Motorola also reveals the global nature of this launch, mentioning presences in New York, London, and São Paulo – the latter possibly supporting earlier rumors about early retail availability in Brazil.
