Motorola's 6.3 inch phablet to arrive in Q3?

Motorola's 6.3 inch phablet to arrive in Q3?
Back in October, we passed along a rumor that Motorola was working on a 6.3 inch phablet called Xplay. A source who has proven to be reliable in the past when it comes to Motorola leaks, now reveals that the company will be releasing its first phablet some time in the third quarter. Lenovo is not expected to make any changes to Motorola's 2014 and 2015 release schedule, which means that the device is still alive.

The tipster did not mention the name Xplay, nor did the precise size of the screen get brought up. According to the original report last year, the Xplay would challenge the 6.4 inch Sony Xperia Z Ultra for the title as the largest-screened phone on the planet. At the same time that the Motorola phablet was first mentioned, the word was that a new DROID model, the Motorola DROID Quantum, was being prepped as a sequel to the Motorola DROID Ultra

While Motorola has never released a phablet, it did release a phone with a larger screen than the norm (for the times) when the Motorola DROID X was launched in 2010 with a 4.3 inch display. At the time, the Motorola DROID carried a 3.7 inch screen and the HTC HD2, at 4.3 inches, was considered to have a humungous screen. Now, a 4.3 inch screen is smaller than average, and a 5.1 inch Samsung Galaxy S5 seems like an average size.

Thanks for the tip!
