Finally Google is all set to be in the war of smartphones of the year giving both Samsung and Apple some good sleepless nights. Rumours were all announcing a Motorola X Phone by the search engine giant. But Google just confirmed these rumours of Google coming up with an iPhone killer Motorola phone by confirming the existence of Motorola X phone.
Minds behind this phone kept playing hide N seek without giving a single word about this phone out until recently company posted a job listing that clearly states the need of a qualified and ambitious leader who could carry Motorola X-Phone forward. Reports are claiming that Google will launch Motorola X-Phone at Google I/O 2013 – developers’ meet-up, set to happen in June.
In this post we would try to compile all the latest updates on the upcoming Google Motorola X Phone.
Design, Camera & other Specs:
Reports have disclosed that this highly anticipated phone will sport a 4.8 inch screen along with a quad-core processor, 128 GB built-on storage with a slot for micro SD card for further expansion – oh lord! Camera is rumored to be a good one too accompanied with a Sony Exmor image sensor and a brand new User Interface much like that of Nexus.
Rumors suggest that just like the recent offerings of Motorola Droid series, X phone will too boast a Kevlar body for that ultra durability. Not going to look similar to Nexus or any current line-up, X device will be more appealing in terms of design and most importantly battery life. With Motorola Razr Maxx, company managed to produce a surprise hit of a phone having massive 3300mAh battery life. This makes it fairly plausible for Motorola X Phone to get something even more beefy.
Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie:
Google Motorola X Phone is expected to launch with the upcoming Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie operating system since the next version of Google OS is also rumored to be released during Spring this year. Recently leaked slides mentioned an Android K-release, making some to believe K could be Key Lime Pie. The launch of K lines up with Google’s I/O conference, also coincidently with Google X Phone launch dates.
Launch dates & price estimates:
Google bought Motorola Mobility back in 2012 with a tailor-made hardware division and valuable patents. It has already successfully implemented its hardware ambitions with Nexus devices but to compete with Apple’s brilliant detailing of software cum hardware, Motorola might prove to be that perfect vehicle for Google.
It’s been heard that Google Motorola X Phone will be a cross-carrier branded device with no carrier constraints hitting in July 8 and priced at $299.
