Motorola has fired out press invites for an event in London next week, suggesting UK mobile fans may finally see the Moto X hitting local shores.
The Moto X – the first Motorola phone to be fully developed under Google ownership – launched mid-last year in the US, but thus far has yet to get its passport stamped for wider release.
Since then we've seen the low-cost Moto G unveiled in the UK to widespread acclaim and popularity, but its high end cousin has remained absent.
However, from the start Motorola said there was every chance that the Moto X would be launched internationally, and it seems January 14 is the date it'll happen.
The invite doesn't confirm it in so many words, saying only that we're about to see “the next step of Motorola's journey” with the release of “a new addition to the Motorola Europe family of products”.
But the same background image was used on the US Moto X launch invite last year, and with pretty much nothing else anywhere on the horizon, it's the only real possibility.
The Moto X comes with a 4.7in 720p display, dual-core 1.7GHz processor, 2GB of RAM and a choice of 16GB and 32GB of storage.
However, it's probably better known for the wide range of colours customisation options offered by the online MotoMaker software, and the fact that it's the first smartphone to be manufactured entirely in the US.
That last point probably won't be the case for the European version, but hopefully we'll get the same scope for personalisation offered across the Atlantic.
We'll know more next week.
