Moto G 2015 Launch Date

 This morning Motorola officially confirmed when the Moto G will be announced, and possibly released. The company started sending out invites for a Moto event on July 28th, and hinted that smartphone buyers will be changing their relationship status soon. It's an odd way to tease the event, but it ended with Moto saying "XOX, Moto".

However that XOX actually looks like "XGX" hinting at a new Moto X or two, and of course the Moto G that has leaked time and time again.
