Purported render of the Motorola X Phone comes with new spec rumors

As Google I/O inches closer along with the potential unveiling of Motorola’s first smartphone designed under Google’s direction, the floodgates are opening when it comes to the rumored X Phone. Today we get a leaked render purported to be the handset along with a new take on the phone’s specs.

The look of the phone pictured here is a drastic departure from recent Motorola designs. The standard black bezel has given way to a metallic finish flanking the top and bottom of an edge-to-edge screen. It’s probably safe to assume that this model does away with the Kevlar construction of recent RAZR handsets. The OS, which is said to be Android 4.2, looks more stock than ever.

Specs accompanying this take on the handset include a Sanpdragon 800 CPU, 4.7-inch 720p display, and a massive 4000mAh battery (which would pretty much take the cake in terms of battery life). For fans of removable storage, the latest buzz points to no microSD card slot. There is also talk of IP57 certification for water resistance and a Gorilla Glass 3 screen.

Of course, the render could be a fake (more than likely fake, in fact), the specs a mere stab in the dark. But if this is the X Phone we are looking at, what is the general consensus? Yay or nay?

    This thing looks amazing….I would love this to be real.

    4.2? come on now…bring on the key lime pie goodness

    • http://www.twitter.com/ninjustin ninjustin

      That most likely won’t be out until I/0 and even then first up on the Nexus line up.

        Ahhhh, look at that body!

  • Caleb Loop

    Are you guys even trying anymore? this looks as fake as fake can get.

    • Caleb Loop

      There isnt even a damn earpiece.

      • Caleb Loop

        Yes.

      • AnthonyCarriedo

        bone conduction?

        • Manbo

          That render is definitely conducting my bone.

    • Caleb Loop

      The clock in the widget is 2 minutes off of the clock in the status bar

    • http://www.phandroid.com Kevin Krause

      in all fairness have you ever used that crappy moto clock widget? the time always is off from the status bar, take a little while to update on my RAZR M. But I am presenting this here not suggesting it is real, by any means. Just food for thought.

      • Caleb Loop

        Good point. The Article’s title or content doesnt really reflect that same opinion that your comment does. Dumb people will go crazy with this stuff saying its real and whatnot if you dont, citing you guys and in turn making you look bad. Just my 2 cents.

      • Caleb Loop

        Ah, I see you edited the article a bit. Either that or I read it too fast the first time around. Disregard my 2 cents.

  • Keith

    I would go for it, I’m not a huge fan of removable storage and I’m sure it will have the option for a lot of internal storage anyways. Not in any hurry to get a new phone though, still doing good with my Nexus 4.

  • dp917

    Probably fake:
    1. The time is different from the widget and status bar
    2. Motorola has gotten away from those navigation keys and use stock android ones

    Hardware buttons? Do not want :S

    • james ortiz

      that’s not hardware dude that’s software buttons

      • Andrea Mennì
        • Sean

          I think you’re confusing the difference in buttons. Hardware buttons are the physical ones that you actually push in. Capacitive buttons are fixed in place in the bezel, but still software touch buttons. Virtual on screen buttons are the ones that can move around the screen and disappear. It’s hard to tell if the buttons on this render are capacitive or virtual, but they are not hardware.

  • Sim Floyd, Jr.

    I say yea, but this isn’t real. 4.2.2? Yeah, no. It looks like someone fell in love with the HTC One and put the metal parts on top and bottom. I will say that I am a fan of the idea of keeping a 720p screen and amping the battery. Everyone would rather have battery life over a 1080p screen if the alternative screen is as good as 720p. When I’m right I’m right. ;-)

  • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

    Love the specs and concept render even thought the render is poorly done. Definitely a “shop job” but maybe it’s from someone who’s seen the device?

    Either way, I’m pretty hyped on this X-Phone. :)

    • bluevoodo

      Definitely a shop job, no one has bezels that thin, the design for some reason reminds me of the Sony Bloggie cameras. 720p screens? I dont think the protruding screen will help against scratches. The concept looks pretty though.

  • Itchy_Robot

    Waterproof … sold. It’s about time these manufacturers stop being cheap and add this to all phones.

    • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

      I like waterproofing but only when it involves that new Liquipel type of process. I don’t like it when all the ports are covered with flaps. I know it sounds dumb but it’s such a hassle to pull out a flap with your finger nail to get access to it (I hate it on my Droid DNA).

      • shonangreg

        Which flap are you so often opening? The micro-USB? From the pictures I can see, the Droid DNA’s flaps do look a bit flimsy and slim. Maybe they’re a bit awkward to open . . .

        I have a used Casio G’zOne that I use for GPS traces and as a bluetooth audio player. I can go swimming with it or take a shower, though the screen doesn’t register touches well while in the shower.

        The flaps covering the headphone and micro-USB ports are thick enough to be angled deeply at the edge. My thumbnail can get it open easily in a single flick every time. (I can’t find any photos at the moment…) So, waterproof cover flaps can be done well as long as the phone is not striving to be another “thinnest in the world” type model. (Anything thinner than 15mm or so makes no difference in how you hold it or store it and is just wasted battery capacity in my opinion.)

        The device I most want now would be a 7″ waterproofed tablet so I can watch videos while soaking on the bath. A 7″ version of the Sony Experia Z would be near perfect.

  • Michael LoCastro

    Completely retarded render considering Motorola just got their patent for the octagon shaped design. Also the fact that it would have a 720p would mean its not cutting edge, as even the non-tier 1 HTC company just put out two 1080p phones.

    • http://twitter.com/mjwhirly Matthew Woehrle

      You’ll never be able to tell the difference between 720p and 1080p on devices this small, so there’s no point in throwing one in when all it will do is drive the price up, also I doubt they will go with the octagon shape for this device first, more than likely they will test it on a less important device first to see the consumer opinions first

      • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

        I’ve as someone who’s seen 720p AND 1080p on a 4.7-inch device I can tell you there is a big difference in quality. Sharper image is sharper.

  • http://www.facebook.com/lucyparanormal Daniel Tiberius

    I’m cool with no SD slot if it comes with 64GB as an option.

    • Androidster_V10

      16Gb/32Gb/64Gb/128Gb!

      • http://www.facebook.com/lucyparanormal Daniel Tiberius

        A man can dream! If they make 128 then they can have all my money.

        • Androidster_V10

          128Gb in 2013 = must have, I think.
          SAMSUNG manufactured/demoed 128Gb mobile module last year.

          Where is it??? GS4? Note 8.0?
          ipad 4.
          it’s tablet.
          but 128Gb smartphone?
          Xphone.=)

          • http://www.facebook.com/lucyparanormal Daniel Tiberius

            That’d be nice, but they barely even could make the 64GB Note 2, and ended up stopping sales of them in Korea I read. I hope they have that all figured out though.

          • http://twitter.com/fightcrazy Vinny

            I was waiting for the Note 2 to give the US Market the 32 or 64gb version, looks like it won’t happen. I wanted that phone so bad but refuse to buy it with just 16gb of int storage. I have the SGS3 with 32gb of int storage. The Note 2 with 64gb of int storage would sell off the shelves. There is a hack where you can switch the int storage with the sd card storage, was tempted to do that but decided to wait to see if something shakes out. Maybe the SGS4 with 64gb of int storage. That would be great. No S pen though!!!!!!!!!

          • ben7337

            Maybe it’s 128Gb and not GB? Which would make it a 16GB module? Most phones and devices use multiple modules together to make up their storage as one unit. You’d need 8 of them for 128GB, but they don’t want to pay the cost to put that much in a phone yet.

    • GregJG

      Oh Daniel *smh*

      • http://www.facebook.com/lucyparanormal Daniel Tiberius

        sorry, I’m sure everyone’s sick of hearing me talk about having lots of storage.

        • Cory Skelton

          I’m with you though I have the GS3 16 GB and a 64 GB SD card, space is a huge issue still. I won’t get the GS4 until T – Mobile has the 32 or 64 GB model.

          • http://www.facebook.com/lucyparanormal Daniel Tiberius

            Yeah my Note 2 has 16+64 as well and it’s mostly full. I just like options :)

          • jaylanPHNX

            I went from a 16+32 setup to the 16 GB nexus 4, and the transition has been hard. I really wish it had at least 32 GB. 64 would be great.

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=708741524 Robb Nunya

          I can manage on 32GB. Anything less and I might as well go buy an iPhone. (That was a joke)

      Solid Motorola feel
      SD slot or 64gb option
      MOAR RAM!

      a decent camera…

    • malcmilli

      are you really complaining about a 4000 mah battery and snapdragon 800?

  • http://contact.innov8ion.com David Goldstick

    Looks like a cool design. Typos: “Specs going accompanying this take on the handset include a Sanpdragon?”

  • skinien

    Fake. Why would the navigation icons go back to the old Razr icons when they’ve updated the icons to AOSP in the Razr’s 4.1 update?

    • Jdog25

      What is really stopping them from doing what they want??? Was there a software problem with the old ones?

    egh …idk as a past droid 4 and bionic owner idk if can go back to Moto (yes i know its verizons fault but still ) same kind of hardware inside …ill just wait to see if the Rumors hold true

  • No_Nickname90

    4000mA battery with new battery technology!? Good heavens!! I would buy that in a heart beat!! I’d be able to play games on that all day. I believe Motorola can do that.

    • Jdog25

      Just look at the iPhone’s battery life. What Android phones need is better software and not just a bigger battery, although a bigger battery never hurt anyone, I think. Back in the day Google updated the G1 from 1.1 to 1.5 and double the battery life.

      • DmwerdNA

        iPhone5 has shitty battery

        • Jdog25

          What is shitty? From what I have heard they have longer lasting batteries then every Android phone. The only phone that would last just about as long is the RAZR Maxx with double the battery size but equal the battery life. Of course you have to be someone who uses the iPhone and a Nexus everyday like a Tech Journalist or me.

          • Matthew Merrick

            Or someone who knows people with iPhones. Or someone who goes places their eyes open – all my family with iPhones it “standard” to have a dead battery by the time they’re home from work. Go to Disneyland (we have annual passes) and everyone with an iPhone is bitching about their phone being dead by sunset.

          • Jdog25

            So you are commenting because you use the Nexus and the iPhone everyday so you actually have a good opinion of the battery life???? I only use the Nexus as an example for Android because it doesn’t come with the extra stuff of the skinned versions that might be eating the battery more.

          • Matthew Merrick

            Oh no, I have a note 2 with amazing battery life, so I’m competly biased.

            My point is, iPhone users are always whining about their terrible battery life and are always having their phones die on them. This is something I see all the time.

            I NEVER see an android user complaining about battery life. (Except my mother, but she’s has her Screen timeout disabled so it’s on nearly 100% of the time :P)

          • Jdog25

            The problem is that you really can’t talk because you personally are not using both. I would get 48 to 72 hours on my Galaxy Nexus and when I gave it to my friend they can’t even make it through the day. Everybody whines about their battery life. At times I get 5 to 6 days on my iPhone 4, as ridiculous as those numbers sound we all use our phone differently. I have gotten into arguments but people because they don’t believe that I can get 3 days on my Nexus and 6 on my iPhone. I used to go 24 hours on my G1 before I had to charge it but that in no way makes the G1 a better phone in terms of battery life nor does it makes the Note 2 better just because you personally have “amazing battery life”. Also what is “amazing”? 10 hours? 24 hours? 72 hours?

            “I NEVER see an android user complaining about battery life.” Come on, really? Were you literally born yesterday? I love my Nexus but I have seen so MANY Android users complain about battery since I first started using Android in 2008, yes I said 2008. Within the last 12 months that has changed thanks to the RAZR Maxx’s battery and Qualcomm’s newer Snagdragon Processor that many phones use today.

            Anyways the main thing that could extend battery life is:
            1. Better Software
            2. Bigger Battery
            3. Use your phone less (most people won’t like this one)

          • Matthew Merrick

            My definition of amazing battery life for my note 2 is 8 hours of heavy LTE usage, 30+ hours of average usage, 2 full days days of light usage. Many of my family members use their iPhones for little more than some phone calls & texting, light Web browsing, and angry birds every time they sit on the toilet. That sort of usage should not exhaust your battery in ~6 hours, no matter what phone you have. Yet it happens to nearly every iPhone user I see. I have only ever seen one android user plugged into a public outlet, and that was in the froyo days. IPhone users plugged into public outlets is is a common sight.

            No, I have no first-hand experience with an iPhone. However, my old iPod touch (4th generation, I think -it was a gift, I passed it down to my sister) had worse battery life than my old Droid X2 (which I had at the same time) and not only did I use the ipod significantly less, the x2 has mediocre (but passable) Battery life.

            I have yet to meet anyone getting 24 hours without plugging in out of any iPhone, and I’ve never even HEARD of anyone getting 48 hours. I find your claims of 5-6 days downright preposterous. You can’t even get that out of a Razr Maxx without airplane mode.

          • Jdog25

            “I find your claims of 5-6 days downright preposterous. You can’t even get that out of a Razr Maxx without airplane mode.” LMFAO, that is what everybody says and that is why I keep saying that people use their phone differently. You find it preposterous that I get that much battery life when I have the brightness on 50% and I am using 3G(iphone) and HSPA+(Nexus), I have never used Air Plane Mode. The last time somebody said I did I came back to their comment after 6 days and showed them two more Nexus screenshots and 1 iPhone screenshots of my battery life again. I understand these things. Now I do have an iPhone 4 and since it doesn’t have LTE then it has better battery then the iPhone 5 for sure and that makes your battery life on LTE even more impressive on your Note 2 (which don’t forget has a bigger battery). You said that you are getting 8 hours of heavy LTE but imagine if your Note had a 1440 mAh battery like the iPhone 5 instead of your 3100 mAh battery, that would be 55% less battery. You would only be getting 3.6 hours of heavy LTE usage!!! Do you see where I’m going with this? There are many different factors in battery life and the reason I use the iPhone is because it tends to last longer against another phone with a similar battery using the same signals. Also it’s not hard to believe that my phones last that long because most people use their phone for everything but on a daily basis I use 3 phones, 2 computers and 1 tablet. Makes sense now?

          • Matthew Merrick

            Hey, I never said anything about specs – I simply said real-world usage. But if my old iPod touch couldn’t last 2 days of the charger me touching it ONCE, I just can’t bring myself to believe there’s ANY way that your iPhone can get significantly more battery life, especially considering background data connectivity, cell standby, ect.

            Unless you’re telling me that IOS wifi is some of insane battery hog, which I’m fairly positive the case

          • t0ked

            The iphone 5 battery doesn’t last all day at all and is much shorter than the 4S. My MAXX HD will easily outlast any iphone, It’s no contest. The 4S has legitimate good battery life. It will easily last all day with moderate use. The 5 falls far short, and is the main complaint from my iphone toting colleagues, barely making it to the end of the work day. They’ve all been learning about battery rationing and/or carrying a charger, something android fans are well versed in. The MAXX HD out paces everything out there, including the 4S and definitely the 5.

          • Jdog25

            That makes sense and it’s good to hear a real answer. It makes perfect sense that the iPhone 5 has less battery life because it is using LTE when the 4 and 4s are not. It’s just like when the first LTE Android phones came out, people were crying that the battery life sucked when it never dawned on them that it was the LTE doing it. At least now the new processors can better manage LTE.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=708741524 Robb Nunya

        I just heard my coworker griping about the battery life on his iPhone 4S… Just sayin. We were talking and he doesn’t get any more battery life than I do on my EVO 4G LTE.

        • Jdog25

          The problem is that you really can’t talk because you personally are not using both. I would get 48 to 72 hours on my Galaxy Nexus and when I gave it to my friend they can’t even make it through the day.

  • surethom

    As long as the screen is less that 5inch with shall bezel & a great camera.

  • blest

    Pretty sure that would be a render. So all of the facts you guys are pointing out.. Are wasted.

  • Timbo1

    Why would Google announce a non Nexus device at I/O? Motorola will get their own day and venue to announce it Google will probably make a brief statement that says “Available exclusively in Google Play Store!”

    • NYCHitman1

      Because it’s supposed to be introduced as the first Google + Motorola experience.

      • Timbo1

        OK got ya. The showstopper will still be hopefully KLP but that would make the so called X phone out of date unless Moto works some magic and gets it updated whenthe Nexus phones get pushed the update which will hopefully happen since its going to be sold carrier free

  • http://twitter.com/Defenestratus Defenestratus

    Only 720 screen? Thanks but no.

  • hideeho100

    It is a fake. look at the arrow key.

    • Jdog25

      Or a new update to Moto’s version of “stock”.

  • Maximillion82

    that’s a nice look, would be good to come in black too

  • Maximillion82

    too bad its 720p and not 1080p the S800 could easily handle the extra pixels.

    • Jdog25

      “Of course, the render could be a fake (more than likely fake, in fact), the specs a mere stab in the dark.”

    Keep Motoblur out of it and 64gb of memory… and 5″ screen and I will buy it today.

  • Alex Carvallo

    For shizzle. I’d hit that.

  • zifnab

    Well with google at the helm i’m sure the no sd card slot is a definite. Google likes to leave it out to push their inferior google drive. Wish they would stop forcing the cloud on us while data caps exist. I guess no SD slot is fine if they start offering 64 and 128gb options… but you know that wont happen. Love my Nexus 4 but the 16gb is just not enough space by far and google drive isn’t an option.

    • Jdog25
      • zifnab

        Fair enough, but then why continue to provide too little storage? Whatever the reasoning 16gb is far too small for 2013.

        • Jdog25

          That still doesn’t make any sense to me either. A 32GB Micro SD card is probably only a few dollars more and a 64GB probably $10 or less, bulk price.

  • j

    I don’t think Google’s new flagship will launch with JB. It wouldn’t make sense. Also, if Google is trying to “Wow” us, I don’t see them choosing 720p display when everyone else is going with 1080p. Phone in the pic looks sweet, but specs don’t seem to add up for a Phone that is “Wow”- worthy.

    • Jdog25

      Would it be “wow-worthy” for $200?

      • HeatFan786

        How can a Snapdragon 800, Waterproof, and 4000 mAh device total to around $200? Keep in mind, you can mention the Nexus 7. I would respond with having a high power camera with good software and front facing camera will prevent that from being made possible.

        • Jdog25

          I was just messing around since the comment I responded to sounded kind of ridiculous.

  • HeatFan786

    It is fake based on the display resolution. 720p for a flagship, please.

    • Jdog25

      Wasn’t the rumor that we would be able to customize the hardware? So what if this was just one possible version?

      • HeatFan786

        Well, seeing how everything is geared towards a high end device (excluding the screen), I don’t buy it. 4000 mAh battery probably will not be in the device. That’s like the size of a Nexus 7 battery. I say wait till Google I/O or for a good leak to occur. This is not that great of a leak/rumor spec discussion.

  • gloriousnumber1

    No SD support = no buy. Can’t someone just offer a Droid DNA type phone with a Maxx battery and SD support????

    • Jdog25

      Yes

  • http://www.gaming-age.com Jim

    Moto and Google have dropped the circle clock and weather widget, so there’s no way that will make it into the X Phone, since it’s not stock. They didn’t even include it in the recent RAZR Jellybean update for that reason.

    • Jdog25

      Whats bugging me is the fact that the bottom row of icons have the names underneath. Are they like that on the current RAZR?

      • http://www.gaming-age.com Jim

        Yes, though different icons. And the center Apps icon says “Apps” underneath also.

        • t0ked

          No “apps” under the center icon on current RAZRs.

    Whatever it is, that’s the first “moto” device that I believe is gorgeous.

  • MK2

    While I don’t like the 720p, 4000 mah and waterproof would definitely sell me.

  • gmaninvan

    I think it is a fake, which is a shame, because that hardware looks exceptional. The reasons are as follows:

    - The device will likely be very close to stock android but will not be completely stock. They will likely still use their own app icons as they have previously to differentiate. This goes for the nav bar icons as well. This way, they can still provide timely updates due to minimal modification to the core experience. If they wanted to differentiate further, they could add a few OEM apps like the power saver moto uses.

    - This device will not come out with anything less than a 1080p screen in 2013 if it is indeed a flagship.

  • DavidB23

    Probably fake; But:
    Love the design and the size. 5″ phones are too big. Let samsung play that silly giant phone game.
    Love emphasis on battery life. Its why I own the MAX HD

  • Zach B.

    Nope. Look at the on-screen navigation keys. Those are from Moto’s ICS devices (Razr HD, M, etc). They are gone with the JB updates.

  • ac

    Clearly a photoshop job, but still like the stylings on that phone (even if it is a photoshop rendering).

  • Micha Ols

    Yay!
    720p screen is crisp enough for me. I don’t need 1080p on anything smaller than 7″.
    Snapdragon 800 would be great.
    Stock Android PLUS some useful widgets is the way to go (Its like the ASUS way, which I love)!

  • h4rr4r

    720p? In the age of the 1080p superphone this is what moto brings?
    This is why your company is floundering.

      Unless you’re eyes are absolutely amazing, I highly doubt you could tell the difference.

  • bluevoodo

    Pfft Needs more cores and higher clock speed! /S

    No sd card isn’t a problem if they give us 64gb of internal storage. Anything less is a deal breaker for me. I would buy the SGS4 with 32 or 64gb of int storage with sd card support. I was a Nexus nut for the longest time but I refuse to buy a new phone with no internal storage. To me that is just ridiculous, high end phones need int storage.

    It’d be a bold decision to stick to a 720 or 768p screen, if there’s no difference between 1080p and 720p at that screen size, it reduces the cost of the phone and extends the life of the battery then Google could be the first to say “FU marketing department” by avoiding the unnecessary spec whore race between Full HD screens and anorexic thin bodies.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Matt-Schley/638525173 Matt Schley

      even on like a 24″ tv, you can’t tell the difference between 720 and 1080 unless you put your face right infront of it. If your holding your phone at a normal distance, I doubt many people can see a difference in pixelation.

  • thatcrazyone

    If this were real I know where my money would go!!!!

    Almost definitely fake… but I have been wondering why devices still have a substantial bottom bezel. If the device goes with virtual buttons, there would be no need for the lower bezel at all.

    • james ortiz

      you need to understand the engineering of phones….. they need a certain amount of bezel. it is for protection against falls. of there were to be no bezel the phones screen would shatter instantly.

      • james ortiz

        although with the advancement in phone screen such as gorilla glass 3 I think it is possible to create a nearly bezeless phone

      • Sean

        But on many phones the glass stretches all the way to the bottom anyways, it’s just black and useless. So the protection issue isn’t a factor.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Adam-Heinrich/1389322721 Adam Heinrich

        I meant no bezel in the same way that the Motorola RAZR M has no bezel, but in this case on the sides and bottom.

  • james ortiz

    if this is true this phone put Samsung and HTC to shame.

  • t0ked

    I don’t really care about 720 vs 1080. Give me color accuracy, high efficiency, and durability. I think most people would be very happy with a high quality 720p screen. I also find my current MAXX HD’s 4.7″ screen is perfect for me to one-hand it so i hope they keep those dimensions. A big 4000mah battery, along with an efficient screen would be awesome as I couldn’t go back to anything less.

    My only peeve would be storage. It would be a non-issue if the phone comes with internal 64GB. Anything less and i’d need a SD slot.

    They should also keep the kevlar backing. It looks and feels awesome, light weight, extremely durable, and distinctive to Motorola.

  • BoSamps

    what if…. What if it was a placebo for the DROID 5

    Wait… chicken tastes like dog?… nah…

  • ben7337

    Definitely looks fake, but if this were to be the x phone for specs, the screen size and resolution would be a bit of a let down, at least compared to others, but not terrible, since it would be a bit smaller than the gs4, easier to hold for those with small hands.

    The battery would definitely blow the gs4 out of the water, would be both awesome and a bit disheartening to see that Samsung really isn’t catching up to motorola with battery size and thickness.

    The CPU is definitely good, but makes it seem like the phone would be coming out at the end of the year, or in the fall. I thought this phone is being announced and released sooner than that, but who knows.

    For the most part is seems a lot like most other high end phones coming out lately.

    Oh, and dropping the memory card slot is depressing. Google really needs to realize that the cloud doesn’t work on limited data plans, or unlimited plans on networks that are slow and cover very few people with fast speeds.

  • guitarist5122

    why does this HTC phone day Motorola on it?

  • OMFCody

    Okay a 64GB non-expandable phone is good for me, but memory being so cheap, why does phones not come with 128 and up? Just my thoughts.

    • james ortiz

      they would be forced to compete with the likes of Apple and charge an arm and leg for them….. look at the iPad 128gb on it.. with taxes you are shedding almost 900 dollars…. insane!

  • Don Villapando

    I don’t care if this is a fake render. I think it is gorgeous!

  • Josh Paramore Hagan

    I would actually be severely less interested in Moto’s offering if it did drop the Kevlar back. I feel like it’s the perfect middle ground between cheap plastics and ultra-built aluminium devices. It just feels so great.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=708741524 Robb Nunya

    720p screen would be good enough. Lack of expandable RAM is a whip. That being said, I’ll believe it when I see it.

  • TalkingMoose

    Better looking than the last supposed rendering.

  • InspectorGadget80

    Why the hell u guys believe everything the internet says? JUST WAIT FOR THE DAMN CONFERENCE JEEZE

  • Ceefax

    Am I the only one who likes the Kevlar?
    Only thing that put me off buying past Moto devices was the software (or the equivilent of the US model not being released in the uk…)

  • AMbro86

    I don’t like it. It looks to much like the latest from everyone else; HTC One, Blackberry Z10, even the iPhone. For that reason I’m calling this a fake. Motorola can be called a lot of things, but thankfully a copy cat isn’t one of them.
