With Google I / O quickly approaching, we expect Google to deliver a stunning version of Android – Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie. Without a doubt, Google is also expected to throw in some rather exciting hardware – such as the Motorola X phone project.
The Motorola X phone was not supposed to be released this year, as Google would have much to explain to other Android smartphone manufacturers.
The upcoming X Phone will inherit some of the characteristics from the current line of Motorola RAZR devices such as Kevlar chassis. Battery life on the X Phone is rumoured to be better than average as it will boast a battery from the MAXX line.
Although still prototype, which may or may not be in its final form, sources said that the battery life was pretty good as they managed to use its GPS for several hours on a road trip without the need to recharge the device.
Other than that, the X Phone pack a 4.8 – 5.0-inch HD display and quad-core processors. Thankfully, the X Phone will feature a microSD card slot despite the fact that internal storage will go all the way to 128GB. Cost of all this goodness, $299.99 on Verizon with contract.
In addition to running a vanilla version of Android, the device seems to offer a camera that is better than the existing ones Motorola uses. Sources certify that it is a Sony sensor – 13-megapixel Exmor sensor.
If the rumours are true, all flagship devices from all manufacturers except for LG will have a camera sensor from Sony. Featuring a camera sensor from Sony makes it possible for manufacturers to decrease the thickness of their smartphones. In addition, the sensor from Sony is the only camera sensor in the market that sports hardware HDR for pictures and videos.
Finally, come May 15, we may see the project X – Motorola’s first phone with direct input from Google. Phone X will feature a Kevlar back, features a HD display of 4.8 – 5.0-inch, a quad-core processor,a battery with more than 3,000mAh, microSD slot, a good amount of storage, stock Android and a camera with hardware HDR support.
Although it may sound like a winner from Motorola, we will need to wait and see if and what all of this will come true. It is said that Phone X will be the first phone to run Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie.
