Amidst all of the excitement about the springtime releases of flagship smartphones, Motorola has revealed that the next generation of their top-tier Motorola Moto X device should be coming out in late summer, probably August or September. This timeline was revealed by Motorola President Rick Osterloh in a response on Twitter to a question about the time-frame for release of the next Moto X. Osterloh indicated Motorola tries to “stay on a roughly annual cycle” for product releases.
The next Moto X is expected to come equipped with a Snapdragon 810 processor. True to previous efforts to distinguish their devices on more than just hardware, the next Moto X is expected to be “smarter than any other smartphone.” During the most recent round of #AskRickO questions on Twitter, Osterloh also revealed that Motorola does not have any current plans to do a smaller screen on their next device, although he seemed to get the message that there are users out there looking for a quality device in the sub 5-inch range.
