Motorola is planning to release a new smartphone that will feature an edge-to-edge screen. This announcement came from the company amid the financial instabilities and a significant cut across their global workforce. The new smartphone is also expected to feature LTE capabilities. This device will be unveiled in a press event in association with Verizon Wireless next week. Reports suggest that the company has designed the smartphone in a unique manner so as to maximize the screen viewing space in the front panel.
Unofficial sources suggest that this smartphone might be released by the end of this year. This device is expected to be a direct competitor for the yet to be released Nokia Windows Phone 8 based smartphone and the latest generation iPhone. More details regarding the features and specifications of the device will be available only after the joint press conference by Motorola and Verizon on September 5th. The company is expecting to turn its fortunes with the release of this device and is hoping that this device will help them to arrive with a bang in the smartphone market.
According to some reports, the new phone is going to be one of the most high-end phones for Motorola Mobility since its acquisition by Google for about $12.5 billion. The sources stated, “The model would also be one of the first full-screen phones in the U.S., meaning it uses the entire front of the device as a display.” Reports also suggest that the new phone will be android based and will support Verizon’s LTE technology.
It has to be seen how Motorola manages to impress the users with this edge-to-edge screen based smartphone.
