September is looking to be a busy month for mobile. We're already anticipating the Galaxy Note 4, iPhone 6 and a slew of IFA announcements. Hell, maybe we'll even see the long-rumored iWatch. Today, though, Motorola added its name to the list of companies battling for your attention next month.

Today Motorola shot out invites for an event on September 4, the very day after Samsung is set to launch its updated phablet. Though Motorola only teased what it has in store (see the shot above), we expect to see the follow-up to the Moto X, known as the Moto X+1, as the centerpiece. The sequel to Motorola's budget-minded Moto G, rumored to be called the Moto G2, is also expected in the lineup.

Another item set to draw some headlines is the official unveiling of the Moto 360 smartwatch. Motorola has been teasing the first Android Wear-running watch to have a round display since March, but the wearable has yet to reach customers. We'll likely get the long-awaited pricing and release info when Moto takes the stage.

The fourth corner of Motorola's teaser image alludes to some sort of earpiece. Could it be simply another Bluetooth headset (yawn)? Or does Moto have something more innovative up its sleeve? Tune into Gizmag on Sept. 4, as we'll be on the ground.
