Motorola invitation

Motorola has set May 13th as the date that they will unveil their next smartphone, and we'll be there to tell you all about it. The event, which will take place in London, will see the introduction of "the next smartphone from Motorola to make these connections happen." The phone is said to be "made to last" and "priced for all", though the invitation is mum on any specifics about the phone. We have no indication that there will be a companion event in the United States, as we've seen several manufacturers do recently — HTC had simultaneous events in New York and London when they were unveiling the HTC One M8 — but considering that it's set for the morning in London, we doubt there will be one.

Motorola's current flagship, the Moto X was only revealed in August 2013, and the less expensive Moto G in November. Rumors have been swirling about a successor to the Moto X to be dubbed the Moto X+1, with leather being added to the current stable of colorful and wood backs available on the Moto X.

Whether the Moto X+1, an even thinner and more affordable Moto E, or another device is what we'll see in two weeks is unknown, but we'll definitely be on hand to bring you the best coverage of whatever Motorola's latest smartphone will be.
