Motorola to make big announcement for Europe next week; Moto X overseas?



Pretty much everyone outside of America is sick of hearing how great the Moto X is without the ability to actually purchase one. That might be changing soon, though, as the company has started sending invites to European press for a big announcement on January 14th. It could be anything, but we’d find it hard to believe that Motorola would specifically point Europe out for anything other than their best phone yet.

For what it’s worth, Motorola did once mention that they would be looking to bring Europe a phone from the same “family” of devices when they were questioned about the lack of global availability for the Moto X. We can take that to mean that even if what we see next week isn’t a Moto X, it should come with a lot of the same features courtesy of the Motorola X8 Computing System. That would include Touchless Controls, Active Notifications and more.

Of course, our guess is as good as anyone’s, so we’ll leave it up to Motorola to dish out the official details once they hold their press event next week. Any of you European folks excited for Motorola to finally bring something your way?

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. They’re not missing much over there. I have the Droid Maxx which is supposed go be the Moto X with a bigger battery and it’s a let down. The processor can’t handle playing a you tube video without constantly buffering even with a strong Wi-Fi signal. Gonna be a long two years, can’t afford to spend $600 on a different phone.

    1. Dunno what’s wrong with yours. Mine handles literally anything I throw at it without hesitation.

    2. Please clear your cache and switch to art

    3. Moto X here and no problems. I am so loving it!

  2. I have maxx it has never stuttered or lagged on YouTube ever. Never lagged period. Fast and crisp.

    1. I’ll have to go down to local Verizon shop for a consultation. While I can work my way around computers, I’ll never be mistaken for a techno expert.

      1. Do you have the same problem on LTE?

        1. ran the same videos on LTE and had no buffering. I guess my Wi-Fi can’t keep up with the phone. I’ll have to upgrade my WiFi unit. Thanks for the tip off.

          1. Remember with wifi there are 2 things to look at. #1 your overall internet speed use the speedtest by ookla app to test your internet speed over wifi and then turn wifi off and do the same over lte and compare them. #2 if your wifi speed is high enough but you are still having problems it could be your access point/router, fix this by upgrading from a wireless g to a dual band N or wireless AC router (it’ll greatly improve your speeds on everything in your house, especially for devices that are further in distance from the access point.

          2. Thanks Max. Being a relatively lower tech person I appreciate the help. My router is a Netgear N600 which I believe is duel band but, I’m going to check that and the speed test. Live in a sort of rural area and I’m told Verizon does throttle down speeds here to make you pay extra for the higher speeds.

  3. Motorola, please give us an improved Moto G version. I agree to sacrifice some screen area, 4″ would be fine for me. But please, give me a smartphone with a better camera and a microSD slot. Without it I don’t see a point upgrading from my old Neo V. My upgrade criteria – all the components must be better and the price must be not higher than that of my old phone.

  4. Was just about to drop a was of chash for the Nexus 5. I will hold off for a bit now.
