Next month is looking to be both exciting and busy for those who work in mobile or follow mobile devices. The expected and/or rumored releases for September are pretty spectacular, in both the Android and IOS camps listed below in order of appearance.
First, there’s the Samsung Unpacked Event Episode 2 (this being their 2nd unpacked event this year) scheduled for September 3rd in Berlin with simultaneous events in New York and Beijing. The Galaxy Note 4 is the most anticipated device for Samsung fans, but there is also talk of both the Samsung Gear Solo (the mobile giant’s rumored stand-alone smart-watch) and Samsung Gear VR (their virtual reality headset running on Tizen OS), which is said to be an Oculus Rift competitor, but seems more of a Google VR type device. The word is that the headset will only work with Samsung’s high-end phones, like the Note 3 and S5.
September 4th is Motorola’s launch day in Chicago. Their invitation contains a four cornered, pillow-like animation depicting an X Phone, a G Phone, an earpiece of some kind and a watch face. Consequently, we’re expecting the Moto X+1 (this year’s update to the Moto X), the Moto 360 smart-watch (probably THE most anticipated device of 2014), an updated Moto G (Motorola’s most successful phone ever) and some type of earpiece device.
Apple is expected to announce the much awaited IPhone 6 and possibly the 2014 Mac Pro. Most of the buzz for many months has been about Apple’s flagship phone, but there seems to be more and more folks expecting the Mac to be announced as well. The new IPhone is expected to come in two sixes (a 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch). September 9th is the expected date, so you’ll be seeing the apple fans pretty charged up around the second week of September.
