More claims about Google's Motorola X phone: huge battery, Sony camera sensor and Kevlar

0. phoneArena posted on 01 Feb 2013, 02:56

The phone is allegedly planned to have MAXX-like battery, the obligatory quad-core processor, screen size in the 4.8" area, and, thankfully, a microSD card slot, although storage is rumored to go all the way to a 128 GB version...

Still hoping it being a Nexus, from the price point and pure Android skin perspective. Good job Motorola, it can' get out soon enough!

Personally, it won't matter if it's Nexus or not. The main thing is that it came from Google.

It matters. After Google acquired Moto they decided not to update the Photon and Atrix to ICS despite being less than a year old. Google's chief engineer acknowledged some people getting a "raw deal," and at least was honest about why although being a lame reason. He stated they didn't have the resources available to work on updates to those models and focus on future models. How Google lacks resources with their endless bank is beyond my comprehension. So, the only way you can count on making it through you contract with an up to date phone is for it to be labeled Nexus.

No problem, Daniel!

As I get more details from my source, I'll keep everyone posted. I'm hoping that this phone ends up being everything it's cracked up to be.

Sniggly it's good to see you. I haven't read a post of yours in quite sometime. Keep up the good work maybe PhoneArena.com will hire you. I wouldn't mind that one bit.

Kudos to you for the heads up information. You have PEAKED my interest on this phone!

Do you know if it's going to be a Verizon exclusive or will it be available on other carriers as well?

I do wonder what processor they are going to go with. It would be a little early for the Snapdragon 800 (if the Qualcomm roadmap is true). They have the option of pairing up with Samsung, but so far only Chinese manufacturers have used the Exynos chipset.

Wasn't the S800 supposed to be available in Q2 though? That means it should be available in mass production for the Razr X in June/July. Or was it the S600 that would be available in Q2?

Either way, I wouldn't mind having the 600, or even the S4 Pro, but being the first device to have one of the top chips of the year would give them a better fighting chance against Samsung.

I'm almost 100% positive they will go with Qualcomm though. Maybe Nvidia, but I doubt it.

i really hope not. I really despise the whole Motorola/Verizon exclusivity relationship. It puts too much power in Vzw's hands, and allows them to neglect devices. If they were available across all carriers, then all carriers are pressured to update their devices.

I dont want a Verizon experience.
I want a Google/Motorola experience.
Im on verizon's network, but I want my device to able to openly operate on worldwide GSM/LTE networks. Will Playstore availability suggest this possibility?

"the phone is apparently outfitted with a much better camera than the crappy units Motorola currently uses..." that is true but is abit harsh, lol...
Motorola certainly took note about their camera's vulnerability, that's certainly a good thing.
Motorola just needed that... The design, battery and everything else is great...and with a Sony (probably Exmore) sensor, it should be a killer deal.

lol....hey...it is what it is. I'm sure Moto knows it too.....especially if this is true.

Rumors sound good so far. All I know is any phone that has a sealed battery has be be in the Maxx bettery size for me. I dont know about 128GB of storage. I have seen phones with lesser specs across the board be priced $299 on contract. We will soon see tho. Would be nice..

If thats true......would they have models with less storage? If so....16GB or higher for me. I would try to get 128 model if that does happen.

My source is usually pretty accurate. Noted that some of what he told me is speculation and rumors, and the model he's using is definitely not complete (he mentioned the screen quality not being up to par with the current Motorola models, indicating they just threw a screen on the device so he could see what he's doing) but most of it sounds at least doable.

Also, imagine what a category buster the phone will be if it's really shipped with 128 gigs of internal memory.

So let's see an early Htc M7 an May Galaxy S4 then this set for July Motorola X phone. Looks like a real big summer 2013. For me i will be passing on the Htc M7, passing on the Galaxy S4, all jellybean devices rather it be android 4.2 or 4.2.1 don't want anymore jellybean devices. I want android 5.0 Key Lime Pie straight out the box so I definitely will purchase the Galaxy Note 3 October 2013 without question. But this Motorola X phone might just be the mid year purchase i need who knows.

I think its important to realize that if Moto and obviously Google is attempting to address two issues that really hurt how well these devices can operate. I hope this is a start of companies putting more emphasis on the software and optimization of the hardware rather than trying to stick in a new piece of tech year after year in hopes of grabbing customers. Improve the experience.

Sniggly, any idea on that edge to edge display that was touted, is it a true edge to edge display with little to no bezel, I'm also curious as to what processor is being used.
