Motorola to make mysterious ‘big announcement’ at its Chicago HQ in August


The official Motorola YouTube profile just posted a new video. The 11-seconds-long clip has no sound and simply shows text that says, “August 2, 2 PM, Motorola HQ Chicago.”

Check out the clip below:

The description of the video is a bit more helpful when it comes to figuring out what Motorola has planned for this August event. Here’s what it says, in full:

Mark your calendar. On August 2, we’re making a big announcement at Motorola’s HQ in Chicago. Say “hello” to a whole new way to connect, stream, download, video chat, and more. Are you ready?

What could this announcement be? It could be a new phone, like the Motorola One / Motorola One Power that leaked recently. Or maybe the Moto Z3 Force. But the description leads us to believe that this is something different entirely, i.e., not a smartphone.
