There have been rumors about Motorola and its parent company, Google, releasing a new and better smartphone this year. Dubbed as Motorola NxT Google X Phone, rumors are now starting to become a buzz following the leakage of some purported images alongside some possible specs.
Back in March, a Vietnam-based blog published series of photos alleging to be shots of Google X Phone but enthusiasts dismissed the notion. A couple of months later, another leak excited the tech community leaving an impression that the device may even be nearing its launch.
The photos look legit, although it does have a look of a typical Motorola smartphone. At the back, the manufacturer’s logo appears underneath the primary camera. The front side does look elegant with the display taking about 80% of the total panel.
Reports suggest Google X Phone will come running NVIDIA’s Tegra 4i processor, which would be complemented by a 2GB RAM. It would sport a 4.7-inch screen featuring Full HD 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution, 16-megapixel primary camera, 2MP secondary, and a massive 2,400 mAh battery.
Basically, the device will be released almost the same size as with HTC One, which also has a 4.7-inch display. But it would offer much power, more features and possibly marketed at a lower retail price. One of Google’s plans why it had to buy Motorola is so that it can subsidize its smartphones. Google devices, in the forms of Nexus phones, have always been great in almost all aspects. So, we should expect nothing less than that.
Of course, information about this smartphone should be taken with a pinch of salt for now. But with legit photos of an alleged Motorola device roaming the web, it won’t be long before Google confirms these rumors.
