Motorola's attempt to get into the high-end smartphone market hasn't been entirely successful, so the pressure on the firm is extremely high.
Both the Moto X (Gen 2) and the Droid Turbo have failed against the likes of the iPhone 6. Other manufacturers have also entered the fray with much improved flagship phones, the most notable of these being the Xiaomi Mi4.
In order to gain some market share in the top-notch handset market, it's being reported that Motorola will release the third-generation Moto X to combat the likes of Apple, Samsung and Xiaomi.
New details about the specifications of Motorola Moto X (Gen 3) have been leaked on the internet, and it looks like it could be the company's new flagship smartphone.
According to a report published today, the third-generation Moto X will apparently come stuffed with a 5.2-inch 1440 x 2560 resolution panel that is already seen on the DROID Turbo. Furthermore, the new Moto X ill come with a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of on-board storage.
The rear facing camera will give the Samsung Galaxy S6 a run for its money megapixel-wise with a 16MP resolution, and it looks like the Moto X (Gen 3) will get a 5MP front-facing camera. Android 5.1 Lollipop is claimed to be installed on the Motorola Moto X (Gen 3).
The new Moto X might be replacing the second-generation Moto X then, but if these leaks are true it could well be a worthy replacement.
