Motorola X is the Motorola NXT; blurry image and rumored specs leak

Motorola X is the Motorola NXT; blurry image and rumored specs leak
With the Samsung Galaxy S 4 about to be introduced on Thursday, we can't blame the Android world for focusing on a phone that could sell more than 100 million units. But there are still a large number of Motorola fans that have been eagerly waiting for information on the Motorola X. This is expected to be the first phone to be a true collaboration between Motorola and its corporate parent Google and the possibilities seem endless.

A blurry image of the Motorola NXT

A blurry image of the Motorola NXT

The latest rumor about the device is that it will be called the Motorola NXT and will be equipped with a 4.7 inch FHD display, which works out to a 468ppi pixel density, the same as the screen on the HTC One. The phone will be powered by the quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 4i which is said to be as powerful as the top of the line Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, but at half the size. A 16MP camera will be on the back and the front-facing 5MP camera will also track your eye movement to control scrolling on the screen, similar to the new feature that will be on the Samsung Galaxy S IV. The dimensions, at 131.2 x 66.7 x 7.9 mm, would make the device slightly smaller, and thinner than the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD.

We have to take this all with the proverbial grain of salt, although this would seem like the perfect time for Motorola to leak out some information to get some of the spotlight off the Samsung Galaxy S IV. We do expect to see Google and Motorola bring this beast out at Google I/O, possibly with Android 5.0 installed. Excited yet?

UPDATE: Unfortunately, the image has turned out to be a fake, which is why we caution you to take stories like this with a grain of salt. As we get closer to Google I/O, we should start to see some leaked images of the Motorola X from authentic sources!

Why I'm getting thumbs down, I'm just excited about the Key Lime Pie(Android 5.0) and the phone itself. :(

ps: I LOVE MOTOROLA :)

Word of advice: never try to comment to get likes. There are always going to be people who disagree with your opinion and you have to accept that. It's better to have the dignity and respect of putting forward opinions that you honestly believe in than to have a comment that just makes people "thumbs up".

I expect this device to offer something revolutionary considering this is the first device to be co-developed with Google. It would be almost a surprise if it was just like the rest of the competition. I would also expect to see some of those recent patents Google has made in the past year or two to end up in this device. Perhaps we could even see the rear touchpad in this device, who knows?

Motorola makes phones with excellent quality better than sammys plastic. Im using a s3 my contract is almost over but I prefer to wait for the moto x instead of s4... pure google 5 plus quality on phone :D

OMG Snapdragon 800.
But still no where near Exynos 5450. Custom made vs commercial.

DMBITS of Exynos processors are much lower than Snapdragon 800, and also snapdragon is clocked at 2.3 GHz compared to Exynos 1.8 or 1.9 GHz. Moreover only 4 cores work at a time in the "octa-core" processor. Thus it is a framework of 2 quad core processor which DON'T work simultaneously. This proves that Snapdragon 800 is much more powerful than the Exynos "Octa" even.

PS - Thanks for all the thumbs down in advance

Please with no knowledge the problem presents it's self the power needed to run this A15 5450 will be just as beastly as the chip itself. S800 is clocked upto 2.3 Ghz, where as the 5450 can be clocked to 2.9 Ghz.

You're comparing S800 half A15 and A9 vs the A15 what a joke.

Do you even know what A-15 or A-9 is?

A-15 and A-9 are the bases. They are about the basic arrangements of transistors and all, but the complex and higher level arrangement is what influences DMBITS per MHz the most. Samsung is not good at it, and so was NVIDIA at the time of T3, but T4, T4i and Snapdragon 800 are all more powerful than the Exynos chip...

Cortex A-15 in Exynos 5 octa vs Krait 400 in S800 will be steal mate, but in gpu I wish Sammy will use Arm Gpu or Advanced GPU than A6X PowerVR SGX554MP4 coz rumor says PowerVR SGX544MP3 will be used in E5octa >.< But if you try compairing S800 to E5octa Try to wait about reviews

Cores matter less than DMBITS. After all 2.0 GHz intel Atom dual core in some Lenovo phone scored 26000 on AnTuTu...

89. amansingal14 (Posts: 289; Member since: 08 Sep 2012)


However GPUs matter too. But still there are some things like the way a processor would work that is important.
Octa will, at most, be able to employ 4 cores at a given time. Either the A-15 cores or A-7 cores will work at the same time, depending on load. However, the time when the processor changes can be a real trouble, as there would surely be a glitch.

All I wanna know is....how does Tegra handle LTE now? How is the battery life of a Tegra 4i phone?

And please dont make it as thin as the RAZR. I wound up not liking it that thin. The Maxx, Maxx HD size is better IMO.

On paper the phone looks nice. But with it being Motorola and because of their history, I really can't recommend it over others.

Sorry but I think you meant to say you couldn't recommend this Moto phone over "other", with no s on the end. Unless you meant to say you'd be recommending multiple iphone models.

I would like to hear why you judge this phone so poorly when it is still in its RUMOR stage and when it is RUMORED that Google is working closely with its new company, Motorola, on this RUMORED phone...but then again that would open up a can of worms where its ok for you to troll some more

Since Moto phones usually have great reception and battery life....and that was before the Maxx phones... I always recommend Moto phones to ppl that value reception and battery life. But mainly reception.

Moto and Blackberry for reception. I would say Nokia too.

There are some of us that actually use these phones for calls...lol.

Interesting that Google is sticking to a screen size smaller then 5 inches for their next flagship device. I would have thought Moto would have pushed for a bigger screen considering the success of the Note and Note II.

if Motorola has proved anything it's that they're more compelled to compete with Samsung in different ways than fighting fire with fire. ultimately that's the best strategy to topple an opponent with so much power and influence already. Android itself would likely not have taken off as well if it copied iOS more closely instead of taking the open source path.

63. imkyle (Posts: 1007; Member since: 18 Nov 2010)


I see what your saying, but people who are already comfortable with the Note's size, will most likely not go back down to a smaller screen regardless of the power.

Android is open sourced. It's released under the GNU license, as is all Linux distributions. You could grab Android right now and make your own OS. It just wouldn't have Google's support (aka Kindle Fire).

That's the Tegra 4 not the Tegra 4i.

Tegra 4i is like Samsung Exynos 4 rebranded to Samsung Exynos 5i.

Then why would they go as far as to say it competes with the likes of the snapdragon 800! Which hasn't even come out yet?? They would be complete fools to use last Gen chips on their phones this year

I hope it to have small bezels. The top looks nice and tight but I hope the larger bottom bezel is misleading because of the poor picture quality. I really want a streamline device utilizing as much screen real estate as possible. Keep onscreen buttons and as little bezel as possible!

Dear Googl-rola,

Please let this have:
RazrM like bezel
Multiple storage sizes a la 16, 32, 64
The screen & reso listed
Premium quality Razr-esque built. Not plastic -_-
Quad core
A REAL camera

Things I've given up on:
GoogleWallet on VZW
MicroSD (If it gives storage sizes because of Google influence)
MHL/MicroHDMI
Carrier Bloatware (If it's subsidized)
Removable Battery (Because it's Moto)

Let's add onto the fantasy...
