The Motorola X is coming soon, but facts are still pretty scant as the phone has been spotted in the wild and in the hands of some pretty powerful industry people. Eric Schmidt, the Executive Chairman of Google, was spotted with what many suspect is the Motorola X recently. But what exactly do we know about this device and when should be expect it to hit the market?
First things first, all signs point towards this phone being something closer to a budget phone. This isn't the next HTC One, iPhone 5, or Samsung Galaxy S4. This doesn't mean it's a slouch though. It is rumoured to feature 4.7 inch 720p display, a dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, a 10 megapixel rear-facing camera, LTE, and run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. What should make this device stand out is the name. Motorola is a veteran of the mobile phone industry. Secondly, this phone is expected to be streamlined. No bloated software, just a simple, clean interface that will appeal to casual phone users who want quality, but don't need the best specs. These less than high end specs will also reflect in this phone's pricing. Expect this to be a serious value phone.
As for a release date, it is rumoured that this phone isn't too far off. Based on the fact that one of Google's top executives is flaunting it out in public means that this phone is coming close to hitting the market. Otherwise, why would the Executive Chairman of Google be using a less than high end phone? Google is the kind of company that does everything for a reason, and this blog and countless others are proving it. The date on the horizon is speculated to be August 23rd based on leaked documents from Verizon.
