The year has witnessed big names in the mobile market launching their own version of a premium smartphone device. Motorola though has been conspicuously missing from all the action so far and the closest that we can associate the company with doing something in the smartphone segment is the launch of a mystery device of which nothing much is known for sure. The elusive device has been referred to in tech circles as the Motorola X Phone or just X Phone or even Moto X. the latter is also reminiscent of Motorola’s earlier smartphone ventures.
We have been constantly being fed with leaks, rumors and speculation of the X Phone since the beginning of the year and has only caught on tempo with the passage of time. However, what is becoming increasingly clear is that the Motorola X Phone has to be out this year and that too pretty soon if Motorola wishes to remain in the reckoning. Leaks and rumors indicate the most probable date of release of the Motorola wonder is going be the 1 st of August this year.
A design studio by the name B.A. Bakken shows some photographs of the probable Motorola phone. The images that the design studio shows makes it appear that the Motorola X would be a completely new concept in the market. Such innovative and visually fresh would be the gadget that it would well be saying goodbye to the old concept that has come to be in the mobile gadgets scene. Perhaps this explains the ‘Good bye Moto’ slogan that Motorola has been resorting to off late.
Coming to the specs of the Motorola X Phone, word on the street is that it won’t be a new revolutionary product. Rather, it would pack in pretty ordinary internals but hopes to undercut the competition in othe ways. Towards that, a dual core Snapdragon S4 processor and a 720p display is being talked of as probable feature set of the upcoming device. That it does not even match up to the best in class premium handsets currently available is all too obvious. However, where the Motorola X is speculated to make its distinct mark is going to be the camera that comes on the Motorola X and the level of customization that can be done to the set. A highly efficient battery leading to an extra long backup time could be another big plus for the device.
Customers would be wiser only after August 1 to get the real picture of the device.
