Alleged specs leak for the third-gen Motorola Moto X


With hot new flagship models from Samsung, LG and HTC already in the hands of consumers, where does Motorola stand? Last September the manufacturer welcomed the second-generation Motorola Moto X into the world. But before the year was out, the Moto X was surpassed specs-wise by the beastly Motorola DROID Turbo and the Motorola built Nexus 6.

Now, there is speculation about the specs for the third-generation Motorola Moto X. According to a report published today, the new Moto X will use the same 5.2-inch 1440 x 2560 resolution panel that is employed on the DROID Turbo. That means it will have a pixel density of 565ppi. Under the hood, Motorola will employ the hexa-core Snapdragon 808 chipset and 4GB of RAM will be on board. There will be two variants of the phone, one with 32GB of storage and the other with 64GB of memory. A 16MP Clear Pixel camera will be on the back while a 5MP snapper will handle selfies and video chats from the front. Android 5.1.1 is pre-installed.

We most likely will see the third-generation Moto X launched in September. If the specs stick, it will be carrying the flagship banner for Motorola.

Thanks for the tip!

Amazing phones by Moto, the G series raped the value for money for us who don't live in Asia. Still s**tty low end samsung phones sell more. The brainwash is real.

Anyone notice there is almost a 1000 mha extra on this battery compared to the older Moto X.

I noticed it and I'm not going to hold my breath. If this is all accurate then I'll be excited, but I still have to question the legitimacy of the information.

Yep Moto G is a great phone, it's about as good as the Galaxy S3 I had before and was dirt cheap. I do plan on getting a better phone soon, but I want to wait until I can unlock it (bought through Cricket so I need it activated for 6 months) then see what's good out then.

I hope so. Past two Moto X phones have been very disappointing. Let's hope Motorola finally learned their lesson.

Well it definitely needs it. The Moto X has awful battery life.

So what are you saying about Apple and Samsung?

My Moto X 2013 lasts me the whole day. And iPhones traditionally have absolutely pathetic battery life... Therefore you're being quite a bit of a hypocrite with your insults. How's your phone working out for you wall hugger?

They were only disappointing on paper. I've had and used both phones and I still love my moto x 2nd Gen as much as my note 4, nexus 6, and s6 edge. I rotate them all, and it's stayed in rotation because it's still one of the most enjoyable phones out there. It's been proven time and again that specs are less than half the battle.

I think Qualcomm is quite threatened by Exynos this year.

That only an idiot buys a Apple or Samsung without a removable battery.

Well I prefer a phone without a removable batter, I can't count how many times I dropped my Galaxy Nexus and had the phone, back panel, and battery fly in separate directions when it hit the ground. Does that make me an idiot? Or maybe someone with different priorities than you?

My iPhone 6 plus lasts me the whole day and charges fairly quickly. And it has a better camera.

Checkmate.

Then stop trollin articles covering subjects you're not interested in. You come in here talking trash, and it's all BS. I've told you numerous times, stop trollin Motorola and Googles and I'll stop making the connection between you two.

Yeah, my Moto X 2013 lasts me the whole day and has a better/more stable OS with less security flaws.
