Moto X 2014

Motorola's New Moto X+1, Moto G2, and Moto 360 were unveiled publically on Sept. 5, Friday. Just the day before, the tech firm had hosted a private gathering that may have featured the devices at its headquarters in Chicago.

Naturally, the three new devices should start rolling out to all the major U.S. wireless service providers. In the sections below, we will explore the current situation at AT&T, Verizon, U.S. Cellular, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Best Buy.

Moto X 2014 (Moto X+1)

Only AT&T, Verizon, and U.S. Cellular have announced that they are getting the New Moto X. It is not clear when those carriers will start receiving the smartphone, even though Motorola gave a release schedule starting later this September.   

AT&T has launched an announcement page and a press release for their version of the New Moto X. The company is the only one so far to be offering the Moto Hint Bluetooth headset as well. Apart from this information, AT&T is not offering the phone for sale.

Verizon has created a signup page that asks subscribers for their emails. Motorola also has a similar signup section as well. Customers will receive email updates once the New Moto X becomes available.

U.S. cellular has not officially confirmed whether it is stocking the second-generation Moto X. Nonetheless, the mobile network operator apparently said that it was going to sell the new phone in September, according to a Droid-Life report.

For now, there is no official word from Sprint and T-Mobile regarding the New Moto X. Consumers will need to wait for more information from these carriers.

Before its official unveiling, the New Moto X was simply dubbed the Moto X+1 by fans. Motorola has instead chosen to keep the phone's original name with the next-generation version. It is not certain what name fans will use to refer to the newer Moto X.

None of the confirmed carriers have announced prices. Still, Motorola said the New Moto X will cost $99 with contract, while the unlocked variant sells for $499.

Moto G 2014 (Moto G2)

The original Moto G may have been Motorola's bestselling smartphone to date. Still, the next-generation Moto G offers greater improvements over its predecessor. These include a larger screen, better camera, and expanded storage capacity via microSD support.

No service providers in the U.S. are offering the smartphone right now. This situation will definitely change in the coming weeks, but for now only Motorola is selling the New Moto G. Nonetheless, the cell phone manufacturer is only offering the unlocked version of the new device.

According to the official Motorola online store, the second-generation Moto G is selling for $179.99 without contract. Even so, this price is significantly lower than the unlocked version of the New Moto X.  

Moto 360 Smartwatch

The retail value for the Moto 360 is $249.99, according to the latest Motorola announcement. So far, none of the major U.S. mobile service providers have offered the smartwatch for sale.

However, customers can still buy the Moto 360 at the Motorola online shop and Best Buy. The device comes with either black or gray leather wristband. At the time of this writing, Motorola has sold out while Best Buy only has the Gray Leather version available.

UPDATE: As of Saturday, Sept. 6, the Moto 360 has sold out at Motorola and Best Buy.
