Motorola's Moto X (2015) might feature a large 3600 mAh battery and a 1080p display
A new Moto X is likely going to be announced tomorrow, when Motorola is expected to also unveil a brand new Moto G. Thanks to numerous leaked photos, we've already seen both handsets, and we also have a pretty clear idea of the features that the third-gen Moto G is supposed to offer. Things aren't that clear when it comes to the third-gen Moto X, though.

While some rumors have it that the Moto X (2015) will sport a Quad HD screen, we're now hearing that the handset will actually have a 1080 x 1920 pixels display measuring 5.5 inches. The info comes from HelloMotoHK, a source that's been quite reliable thus far.

In addition to a 5.5-inch 1080p screen, the new Moto X is expected to feature a six-core Snapdragon 808 processor, a 21 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front-facing camera with its own LED flash, microSD card support, and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. Moreover, it's said that the handset will offer a 3600 mAh battery - way larger than the 2300 mAh battery of the Moto X (2014). The new X should be available in single SIM, and dual SIM variants. Any takers?

The moto x deserves way more credit than it gets. If they slap a quality camera on it and keep with the lag free software, it should be a good one.

No dual front facing speakers like the Nexus 6, a better camera, and a better battery would be fail

I just hope it's not as lackluster as the droid bionic you're still butthurt about. 4 years of being a whiny emo troll has really taken that youthful sparkle from your eyes.

I don't think I said anything about the Bionic. Your talking out of your rear end.

Justin Beiber always being negative. I'll add on though... Motorola with their retarded "exclusives" will find a way to reduce their potential sales regardless of how good of a device they make.

Who's being negative?

Yea, yeah, yeah, we get it, you get a hard on whenever you trash talk Motorola.

Like you do with Apple?

That's why I defended Apple's right to remove Nest from their store? I know you remember my comment in that article, you supported my statement.

So now that Motorola delivered on all of your demands, are you going to buy one? Or are you going to find something else to bitch about?

It's not fail if you make money.

A terrible battery and a terrible camera? I say otherwise.

If this turns to be true, Moto X is my next phone

3600 mAh with a 1080p display? That battery life should be interesting.

Try the mid-ranger Lenovo A5000 with 720p and 4,000 mAh battery. I squeezed 12 hours of SoT!

I wonder if there's any smartphone out there with 24 hours of screen on time...

If they sell this one for $360 during thanks giving like they did for previous moto x, I will buy this one. Tight budget. :(

I feel you, I'm in the same boat.

1300 more mAh and 808/1080p will be a beast. Even a moto with 801 can keep up with new flagships.

Yeah I love the Moto X 2nd Gen.

I just hope its about $400 or less.

The droid turbo seems comparable, which should set the price at $499. Less than that would be great

Seems possible. Going with 1080p and an 808 instead of 1440p/810 will bring better battery life, thermals, and lower price. I expect it to be $450-500, but it'll drop in price pretty quickly with the holidays coming soon.

Not much being leaked about Verizon Droids. Well it beats having your flagship as carrier exclusive at launch.

this should be great!

There may be a series in-between G and X and a phablet.

I know I will be torn between this one and one of the Notes. I have loved the overall performance and look/feel of my Moto X 2014. Just like most people feel, a better camera and battery would really round it out. Love the quick updates too!
