Note 5 & Moto X Release Date

In a surprise turn of events both of these phones are getting shown off much earlier than expected, but Motorola's still not releasing its new 2015 Moto X "Pure Edition" until sometime this September. This could end up being bad for Moto, because this year Samsung moved up it's release by over a month. 

The Galaxy Note 5 will be announced on August 13th in New York City, and a slew of rumors are suggesting it will be released from all major US carriers on April 21st. Or at least AT&T, with other US carriers pushing it out before the end of the month.

Originally we expected a similar September unveil and October release date, like the past four years, but that isn't the case. This means that the Note 5 will be official in two weeks, and possibly available to buy in just 3 weeks. Sooner than the Moto X and it's "September release" whenever that may be.
