Motorola X phone to have a smaller "M" version, Droid Blast sharing feature leaks

0. phoneArena 10 May 2013, 05:44 posted on

The Motorola X has two versions prepped, claims the source, with a smaller "M" model making the rounds, similar to the Razr and Razr M setup. The full Motorola X version in its current state is apparently going to sport a 4.8" HD display panel, 2 GB of RAM, and runs Android 4.2.2 in the testing phase...

Xphone is useless we all knew that they were faking the funk. The Galaxy Note 3 was going to trounce the Xphone anyway.

Uhh why are we comparing the Note 3 again? I'm in the market for a phone this year, not a 6" tablet. If you must, pit this against the GS4.

This is really unprofessional. What and who are your sources?

What do you mean? I see nothing unprofessional. Google allegedly gave up on the X phone and threw it back to Motorola to do on their own, and Motorola came up with this Droid Blast feature and a "M" version of the X.

Also, they list the sources in their articles.

I think I tend to partially agree with fanboy on at least one note: the analyst that stated Google was no longer working with Motorola on the X phone had no basis for her statement. It said nowhere in the source article how she made such an assumption. When you read the source article for this one it states that they have a tipster who has the device in hand. At least they have someone who claims to have the device in hand versus some woman in China who we are just suppose to believe because she has "18 years of experience" (although it also never pointed out how well her experience was. Was she wrong in the past or always right? We don't know.) Not to mention that none of the other major tech sites reported on that article which leads me to believe they thought it was a baseless rumor as well.

I see where you're coming from. But for all we know she could be right and other tech websites just haven't picked up on it yet. It did kind of come out of nowhere, so I understand how it could be presumed fake. We'll see at Google I/O if Google mentions it or not.

I can't wait to see what Motorola really has up its sleeve. Also, both "X" and "Ghost" are pretty kickass names. I hope that Google and Motorola use one of those two names for the final product.

My money's still on Droid Razr X. We know how much Verizon loves those two franchises, and the Droid X was a huge success too.

Yeah, but this phone will be multi carrier, so while Verizon can name it whatever the f**k it wants, and Sprint will probably come up with a s**tty variant name (as it does whenever it's given a f**king chance), I'm hoping that the GSM version will be called Ghost or X.

Ghost? You really dig that?

If AT&T and Moto have any business sense at all, they'll come up with something other than Atrix X. I think that dead horse has been sufficiently beaten already. International versions are likely to be Razrs.

Atrix X -- AT&T
Photon X -- Sprint
Motorola X -- T-Mobile
Droid Razr X -- Big RED

If that feature is in the latest Android OS then Samsung will definitely name it as the "S Blast". XD

Hate those things, I prefer dedicated buttons like on the DNA but the home button should always be able to wake up the phone with a press and hold or hover your finger over it. I hate having to use the power button to wake the phone it's annoying. Anyone have a go at the GS4 yet? Samsung have this thing going with these overly sensitive volume rockers and power buttons.
I know Motorola should come out with something kick ass, they developed the Razr line and those phones did well then came the Maxx and those batteries are seriously the biggest yet slimmest for smartphones yet. Moto needs to run with their battery technology and tough as nails designs.
