Motorola uses a no-sound 11-second video to hold a "big announcement" next month during an event at its headquarters in Chicago.
A description below the video below shows some hints. Make it what you want: "Mark your calendar." On August 2, we're making a big announcement at Motorola headquarters in Chicago, saying hello to a whole new way to connect, stream, download, video chat, and more Are you ready? "
The consistent speculation is that this event is likely to cast an official light on the Moto Z3 and / or the Motorola One Power. Motorola made a statement to The Verge stating that the device manufacturer's news "will change the way people use and interact with their phones."
Ok, so a telephone announcement. Then again, maybe not. The teaser description for the 2nd August event, which starts at 2pm. and promises "a whole new way to connect" could also be understood as an allusion to something else that is not necessarily a phone.
For example, the people of Android Authority asked if we could talk about a new Moto Mod here. Or maybe an intelligent Motorola loudspeaker modeled on the Amazon Echo Show.
There is not much else to do. It will certainly be interesting to see how the company is trying to make a splash, especially because it's on a calendar during a busy time, in which Samsung also unveils the Galaxy Note 9 in New York on August 9th. 19659002] And of course, Apple will not be there until a few weeks later, with details of the next iPhones likely to be released in early September.
At the moment, not much is known about the Motorola One Power, although it has already had some mentions of a possible notch and an expansive screen. A flagship of the Moto Z3 is said to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip with a potential dual-camera array.
All in all, as Tom's Guide correctly states, Motorola will be struggling with anything phone or phones they talk about on August 2nd. "Motorola's biggest challenge will be overcoming the Apple Samsung attack – these are the only smartphone makers to make a profit in the industry, and everyone else seems to be fighting for part of it – while Motorola's new phones are innovative could be overshadowed if Samsung hosts its own press event just a week later to unveil the Galaxy Note 9.
