The New Moto X was slated for a late summer release, and there are rumors that late summer may be referring to right near the end of September. According to Droid Life, Verizon Wireless is expecting to receive their version of the new Moto X device by September 25th, which is technically past the official end days of summer but it could be close enough for Motorola to stick to that statement. We’re not sure if that date is set for when Verizon expects to launch the units for sale or if that would be the dates they expect to get the shipments in, we also have to keep in mind that the source said that Verizon expects to receive them by that date, and not necessarily on it, which could mean they’ll come before that.
News of Verizon’s prediction of when they’ll get the New Moto X in isn’t the first time we’d heard of the follow up to last year’s device from Motorola, as there have been rumors of a late September release prior to today. So far there hasn’t been any word from any of the carriers officially, and thus far we haven’t heard any rumors about when other carriers might expect to get their models of the new Moto X in yet, although we can hope to see it before late September even if that’s only by a week.
With Verizon expecting to see the Moto X by September 25th, it would be safe to assume that we could see all major carriers get the phone by that date, as well as an unlocked version from Motorola themselves. So far there is no official word on what the device might cost, but we suspect those details might start trickling through once we get closer to an actual launch. The new Moto X is rumored to be slightly bigger than the last model, and it’s expected that we might see the Moto 360 launch around the same time so September could be a pretty exciting month for those looking to get a smartwatch and a new phone.
