Motorola has started sending out press invites for a launch event scheduled on July 25 in New York. The invite does not give any hints as to what will be announced, though one or more Moto smartphones are most likely expected from recent leaks. The invite is a catchy one, and comes with a colorful tunnel, lit up in varied shades. The opening text mentions ‘you won’t want to miss this’, and later comes the hashtag #hellomotoworld with the event details. The launch is most likely to be a global one, considering the hashtag mentions ‘moto world’ instead of just the standard #hellomoto tag.

All three devices have seen multiple leaks, and there are hardly any secrets as to the devices’ specifications. The smartphones feature top-of-the-line specifications, and while Motorola might not unveil all three in one go, one of the three is most likely to debut at the event scheduled on July 26. The Moto X4 and Moto Z2 Force are both expected to feature a dual rear camera setup, whereas Moto Z2 will come with Moto Mods, just like the previous edition.

They add a 360-degree camera Mod, DSLR Mod, two Marshall audio Mods and a DirecTV Mod (for HDMI output). The mods have not been unveiled or announced in any other market so far, and the July launch could also see the Mods being unveiled globally along with the Moto Z2 Force smartphone.
