Motorola’s Moto X might finally arrive on August 1st
Motorola’s long-awaited Moto X phone could finally arrive on August 1st if a leaked ad campaign on online design portfolio portal Behance is true. B.A. Bäkken’s design studio published a “pitch work for Motorola” bidding farewell to the Motorola we once knew and welcoming the brand new Motorola.

The date 8.1.13 is underlined all over the ad campaign and while we see no explicit mention of the Motorola X, it’s only logical to guess that the reboot for Motorola will start with that long rumored flagship.

The ad pitch raises the bar of expectations up high for “New Ideas. New Technologies.” and we hope that the Motorola X will deliver. So far, we have seen various leaks about the X phone and if those are true we’re in for some good news - this won’t be just another super-specced smartphone.

The Motorola X is rumored to feature a 720p display (far from the sharpness of 1080p screens of today), and only a dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro. That’s basically the configuration of a high-end Windows Phone, not an Android phone.

Why is this exciting? Mostly because it means the focus will not be on specs, but on features, probably the camera (rumored to be a 10-megapixel one). Here is the ad pitch for the new Motorola:

I like the ad pitch. The wait for a new phone is killing me. Ironically, even though I'm the biggest phone geek in the department at my store, I'm pretty sure I'm currently using the oldest phone out of anyone else there.

I have a note 2 and a droid x right now... pretty sure the droid x is ancient these days. As much as I love my giant screen I'm a huge moto fanboy. The OG droid is still my favorite phone of time.

My dad still uses my old Droid X. It stands as one of my favorite phones of all time. I've never regretted owning any of the Motorolas I have owned. The V195s, Cliq, Droid X, Atrix...they've all stood the test of time. The Note series is excellent, and Samsung's cameras kick the bejeezus out of Motorola's right now, but I've been holding out for the Moto X since the first rumors hit the Internet seven months ago. If the Moto X doesn't turn out to be a good phone somehow, it'll probably be the most crushing disappointment I've faced all year.

Has it really only been 7 months? It feels like ages.

Motorola and Nokia's phones are usually the most durable in the industry, without going to the extremes of military grade phones.

i can't wait. i'll probably have the HTC One by the time s**t goes down but if the Moto X is as cheap as to be believed i'll probably just buy it to have along with my HTC One. goodbye...my old friend.

"That’s basically the configuration of a high-end Windows Phone, not an Android phone." And this is a bad thing? So many WP fans will tell you that isnt a problem.
