Phones like the Moto S and Moto X Play are poised to join the familiar Moto X+1 and Moto G but the real big news is that the company could be reviving the formerly popular Droid line with a potential three new Droid phones. If you are an avid follower of the mobile industry then you have probably already heard that Motorola should be releasing new versions of the Moto X and Moto G sometime around September 4. Outside of these two confirmations, everything else is rumor and hearsay, which is where things get tricky.
One model that recently started circling the rumor mill is code named "Shamu" and was tied to some talk regarding Nexus. However, this device could ultimately come out under the Moto S name when, or if, it ever surfaces for real. This shouldn't deter you from hoping for a Motorola Nexus, as that is always a possibility. In addition to that, the Moto X Play could also come out as a mini version of the Moto S.
Even more interesting is the fact that the Droid series of smartphones may no longer be exclusive to Verizon. An anonymous source has indicated that AT&T could be launching their very own branded versions of the handsets. Regardless of carrier, it is advisable for mobile users be on the lookout for a refreshed Droid and Droid Maxx in addition to a Droid Turbo, all set to come out this year. Side note: If you are a Star Wars fan then you will be pleased to know that one of these devices may be offered in conjunction with an upcoming Star Wars promotion, which is pretty exciting news if you ask me.
This is definitely an interesting report, amplified by the fact that we are already well into the second half of the year, meaning there isn't much time left for these eight new Motorola devices to start coming out for real. The specific eight devices that are rumored to be coming out are the Droid, Droid Maxx, Droid Turbo, Moto X+1, a successor to the Moto G, Moto S, Moto X Play and Motorola Nexus. While all these choices may seem like a good idea and a good way to boost sales for Motorola, this could have the opposite effect. Let me explain with an analogy I got from learning improvisational comedy: If I ask you to pick your favorite ice cream, it may take you a while to choose just one, but if I tell you to pick your favorite out of chocolate, strawberry or vanilla, your choice becomes easier and your response faster. Basically what I'm saying is sometimes less is more.
