While rumours so far have hinted to Motorola working on a new flagship smartphone, the Motorola X Phone, that could be unveiled at Google I/O 2013, there has been little information about the specifications of the device. Fortunately, it looks like those details are now starting to emerge.
According to a PhoneArena source, Motorola is focusing on two key areas: Durability and battery life. The first will be addressed with a Kevlar chassis similar to what we have seen on other recent Motorola smartphones (like the Motorola ATRIX HD). For the latter, the Motorola X Phone could pack a battery with a capacity “in the realm of Moto’s MAXX line of handsets.” That would suggest battery with a capacity around 3,300mAh. Other specifications include a quad-core processor, a stock version of Android (Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie perhaps?), a 4.8-inch display (slightly smaller than earlier rumours suggested), a microSD card slot and online storage option that could go all the way up to 128GB. Without providing details, the camera is described as a “much better camera” and possibly with a Sony Exmor sensor.
Earlier rumours have indicated that the Motorola X Phone could go on sale on July 8th in the U.S. Verizon could offer it for US$299 with contract, a price that hopefully is for the 128GB model with cheaper options with less capacity.
If Motorola can deliver on the promise of these rumours, this could be quite the smartphone…
