Motorola is sitting at the far end, when it comes to making Android smartphones. The Google owned subsidiary has still not made any Nexus device so far. So, things could be changed this year. Both Google and Motorola are working on a secret project currently known by the name of Motorola X Phone.
Until now, Samsung is one among the favorite contenders, who gets much support from the software giant. Motorola is still looking for a big hit product. The company's last major hit device was the Motorola RAZR MAXX HD. According to new rumor surfaced recently, Motorola X Phone is said to be a "Game Changer". Is Google making an iPhone killer? Or Samsung Galaxy S4 coffin in making. Who knows? The device could see daylight in the month of May at Google I/O 2013.
Motorola X Phone - New rumor with a substance?
In the month of May, one could possibly see a brand new device from the house of Motorola. It is said that Google is working hard on this project. Why not? Now the software giant has every right to mould Motorola, as per its wishes. Recently Motorola was also hunting for a senior director product development officer who can work on the so -called Motorola X Phone. The job listing clearly highlighted "Next Generation SmartPhone Platform".
The folks over at Droid Life claims that the Google supported device will be priced reasonably priced (sounds similar to Nexus 4), and almost all carriers will sell the device (specific to USA only). Verizon, another Motorola well -wisher, could sell the device for $299(Rs.16, 000) on contract. It is also being said that Google Play will play a major role by selling the device online (unlocked version at reduced price). This is not the end as the report also sheds lights on the "stock mobile OS".
Australian technology site SmartHouse reports that Hugh Bradlow, Chief Technology Officer for Telstra, has told senior mobile staff at Telstra the new device is a "real breakthrough, a game changer that will put pressure on Samsung and Apple". The device will land in Australia this year. Going by the above instance, its' clear that the Motorola X Phone would show its software power to some larger extent. However there is no doubt about Motorola's hardware engineering as well. By word "Game Changer" could also translates into Android Key Lime Pie aka Android 5.0.
Motorola X Phone - Rumored hardware specifications
The Motorola X Phone is pegged for July release. Let's have a glance at the rumored specifications of the mysterious device. It will have a 4.8-inch HD display, 128GB of internal storage, Quad core processor, 2GB of RAM, Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, 3300mAh battery, 13-mega pixels rear shooter (powered by Sony's Exmor lens) and Kevlar body.
Motorola X Phone - India debut
Google is not friendly when it comes to launching new devices. The recent misses from both Google and its hardware partners, are well known. This year, one could see a possible launch of Nexus 5 and even till now, India has been set aside with the launch of LG Nexus 4.
Similarly, Asus made Nexus 7 available in India, but its launch was not less than a disaster- thanks to its steep pricing and thin retail presence. On the other hand, Apple has starting making India as its next big goal: Whom to blame?
