Moto G was very well received in India and now Motorola will launch its elder sibling, The Moto X in the coming few weeks. The information was confirmed by Motorola tweets. With the confirmed arrival of Moto X there are a lot of things to be excited about.
The Moto X is one of the best build Android phones. Of course the looks are often a matter of opinion, but with the dimpled curved body design, loads of customization options and ergonomic design, it will appeal to most people.
The display is 4.7 inches in size and flaunts 720p HD resolution. The resolution is not as trendy as Full HD display in other flagship devices, but you can get some consolation in the fact that it won’t drain your battery as much.
Motorola has also provided with some smart software features like Active display which can display notifications on lock screen, and thus had to provide with Super AMOLED display so that entire display does not have to be powered while displaying notifications to significantly conserve battery. This also means darkest darks.
The processor used is Qualcomm MSM8960Pro Snapdragon and with this choice of chipset, Motorola has opted for 2 high frequency Krait cores rather than four average cores to give you sufficient processing grunt, while being light on your battery. We are eager to see how this chalks out in practice. The GPU used is Adreno 320.
The RAM capacity is 2 GB and you will have to choose from 16 GB and 32 GB storage options. The primary camera has a 10 MP sensor with 1.4 micrometer of pixel size for better low light performance. Both the rear camera and the front 2 MP shooter are capable of Full HD video recording.
The battery capacity is 2200 mAh and Motorola claims 24 hours of mixed usage from the battery. Talk time is 13 hours and standby time is 576 hours. Also, the software is Android 4.4 KitKat, with good chances of future upgrade as well.
If Motorola can keep the pricing as aggressive as Moto X, it has the potential to be the next big thing after Moto G. Let’s wait and watch.
