In a public Twitter interview last night, Osterloh confirmed that the Moto X (2015) won’t break the company’s year-long product cycle, but at least we know there’s a definite update scheduled for this year. It sounds as though Motorola isn’t changing its plans now that it’s owned by Lenovo. Given the year-long product cycle, that means we likely won’t see the device announced until early Sept. 2015. Maybe sometime in August if we’re lucky.

Osterloh fielded a few other interesting questions, ranging from the Moto 360 to the possibility of a Moto tablet. Responding to rumors that Android Wear may add iOS support, he denied knowing anything about it, though that doesn’t mean Google’s not working on a cross-platform update. As for a tablet, it’s still not happening, and Osterloh says you’re better off buying one from Lenovo instead.
