Motorola Quantum and 6.3-inch Motorola Xplay rumored

Motorola’s main devices for 2013 are already out and about, with the Moto X and the latest DROID phones — the Ultra, Mini, and MAXX — already in the hands of many consumers. Now, they’re looking ahead and readying the next batch of devices that they hope will improve their standing as one of America’s premier OEMs.

New rumors out of Weibo suggest that the company is working on a successor to the Motorola DROID Ultra. Dubbed the DROID Quantum, this phone will likely be a moderately-sized smartphone by today’s standards. It’s entirely too early to know anything about it, but we imagine Motorola will look to build on a lot of the same stuff they did with this year’s devices.

Something a bit more outside Motorola’s “typical” course is the Motorola Xplay, which is said to be a 6.3-inch phablet. That’s humongous, and would put it right up against the Sony Xperia Z Ultra in terms of size. It would be a strange departure from Motorola’s norm for sure, with the company once stating that they were only interested in making smartphones with that “just right” size.

While the source of these rumors are fairly reputable, we’ve been to enough rodeos to know not to put too much stock into these things. That said, we’ll be more than interested to see these devices if they are indeed headed our way at some point in 2014.

    it would be great if they make sure it is edge to edge screen plus very small bezel like the moto x

      I haven’t used a phone like that. I do a lot of gaming on my phone. I’m afraid of accidental presses. Have you used a phone like that? Does that happen a lot? If so, then they can scratch that idea. LoL!!

    The question is do they know the definition of Quantum which is the opposite of what most people think it means?

    • ari_free

      Most people think quantum means something truly awesome and super high tech which drives Star Trek warp drives and dilithium crystals

        Quantum has a number of definitions, one being an adjective that means “sudden and significant”….

        • shonangreg

          A Quantum is the smallest (observable) unit.

          • Peyton

            Quantum also means a large quantity….

          • shonangreg

            Two quanta is more than one quantum. There is no half-quantum.

      I’m pretty sure it has something to do with leaping

        How Enterprising of you! You shot that like an Archer, Sam!

  • HeatFan441

    Wouldn’t be surprised if it is a gigantic Moto X with a Snapdragon 600 or 800 and 1080p display and a bigger battery. Now that’s a phone to keep an eye out for.

  • scoter man1

    I hate to be that guy, but… it’s only .7″ off of the N7, might as well get that, lol.

    • Jason Farrell

      ‘cept phablets feature way less bezel.



  • CerealFTW

    I like 5″ – 5.2″ for a screen. I’m pretty sure Motorola is just trying to piss me off haha
