Third-generation Motorola Moto X specs leak

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.

It is weaker than the Droid Turbo and Nexus 6 though.....

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

We can always on you Mxy, to speak well on others besides Apple products.

We could say the same for you if it's about anyone other than in android land

Only if provoked by desperate WP fan boy. Droid users are peaceful by nature. LOL!

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?

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

Yeah,'s an iPhone. Checkmate.

Ooh you absolutely floored me. How can I ever recover from that childish comment.

You could recover by not bashing Motorola every chance you get. Have you missed me, Mxy?

140. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Or they could do right and I wouldn't have to criticize them. Missed you? Maybe you should get a lady friend.

They have done right in many ways. They make very good phones that people like once they've used them, and offer choices not before seen among smartphone manufacturers. You're holding onto a four year old grudge, Mxy. Maybe it's time you got yourself a "lady friend," as you put it. Or at least repair your marriage.

150. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Choices? You mean a few options to customize a few colors? So what? I never decried them for that. A four year grudge? I think your math is off. Repair my marriage? Step into the game first before you go into relationship insults.

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

141. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Stable? lol how many updates has lollipop had since its initial build? Don't even get me started on security failures. How many times has the play store been hit with rogue apps? We can keep this up but you're just going to bury yourself even deeper into the hole. Checkmate

And of course iOS's major iterations don't require .1, .2, .3, .4 updates. Both systems get reasonably stable once a few patches come out.

151. Mxyzptlk unregistered

I never said it didn't. Might want to refer to the crazy guy's comment up above. I agree iOS 8 isn't as stable as iOS 6 or iOS 7. Still far better than what lollipop has been.

Talking about iOS security, here's a great article you might remember, there's 1500 apps from legitimate software developers, and each one is a massive security breach for the iPhone. Then there's this report about Android crashing less than iOS... Then there's this article... Comment 42 is very enlightening if you happened to miss it before you should check it out now. So there you go Kanye, that's how you back up your statements. Calling people virgins is just ... for lack of a better word, stupid.

Quit your bytching & trolling against Motorola and Google. On ever damn article. U may have right of a opinion but no one doesn't have to fckn listen to your same damn hatred speech. Just because their not the number one company unlike Apple, at least Motorola makes better phone than your #bendgate iphoine6 plus. For once STFU with your hatred and take it else where Lil boy.

131. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Can someone translate that for me.

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.
