Motorola has sent invites to the launch of its next smartphone. The event will take place on 13 May in London.

"Connect more people to the world's information and each other, and they can do great things," announced Motorola via its invite. "Introducing the next smartphone from Motorola to make these connections happen. Made to last. Priced for all."

The company didn't provide any other details, but rumours have claimed Motorola will allegedly replace the Moto G later this month with a new device called the Moto E. It supposedly features a 4.3-inch screen, 1.2GHz dual-core chip, 4GB of internal memory, 1GB of RAM, 5MP rear camera, and 1,900mAh battery.
