Motorola X Phone Will Reportedly Boast Snapdragon 800 CPU, Sapphire Display Protection, and Huge Battery
Since the day the Samsung Galaxy S4 was launched, there have been several rumors about the Motorola X Phone. The thing is that every one of them comes with something new in terms of specs that doesn’t match the previous one. Today, we have another Google X Phone report that is as confusing and the other and we still don’t know for sure what kind of software will be under its hood.
According to this latest report, the Motorola X Phone is expected to be release sometime in November. While, the previous rumors claimed that the handset will be launched at the Google I/O event in May or this summer, this one suggests that the smartphone will become available just before the holiday season. According to Phone Arena, website that got a tip from an anonymous source, the Motorola X Phone will come packing some impressive pieces of hardware like a 4.8-inch display, which will not be protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass, but it will come with the sapphire glass instead. It will also come with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 2GHz quad-core CPU (which isn’t sported by any of the existing devices) and a huge 4000 mAh battery.
Also, it seems that the X Phone will have a feature similar to the Sony Xperia Z meaning that it will be water proof and its back case will be made out of carbon fiber, and on its corners it will feature rubber bumpers. Of course, this rumors can’t be confirmed in any way and it’s possible to be as inaccurate as the previous one. Until we get an official confirmation this is just a simple rumors and nothing more.
What’s interesting is that this report doesn’t mention anything about the customizable hardware of the Google X phone. A few days ago we told you that the X Phone will be launched as a whole series meant to compete with other rivals, such as the Galaxy S line, and the smartphone will not be the best of Google’s handsets. The previous reports said that the customers will have the possibility to customize the specs of the Google X Phone before being ship, such as color, storage space and RAM.
Moreover, the customization feature was sort of confirmed by Guy Kawasaki when he posted a video on his Google+ account. The video featured Porsche cars being personalized and Kawasaki implied that this could be the case of the Motorola X Phone, as well. Another report suggested that the personalization feature is in fact a lie and the phone will come equipped with standard hardware just like the rest of the smartphones.
If we are to believe today’s report, the mentioned specs definitely makes the Motorola X Phone a high-end handset and also a flagship. With this in mind, I’m very curious how much will it cost because the customizable version was said to be rather an affordable device. With the current specs, I don’t think it will be the case.
It’s clear that this is not the last rumor concerning the Google X Phone, and many will follow in the following months. I have no doubt the Google will say something about it at the I/O event. If we are lucky enough the company will even announce it.
So, are you happy with thus alleged X Phone specs, or you liked it better when it was supposed to be customizable?
