Motorola isn’t quite the name it once was on the mobile market, but it’s done itself no harm of late, with numerous smartphones taking to the market successfully. And now it seems we could be getting another one on high street shelves sooner rather than later.
After the success of the Moto X (2014), specs have been leaked about a possible successor, going by the fairly predictable Moto X (2015) name.
It doesn’t come as too much of a surprise to see some chatter about the next Moto X handset, as it’s due sometime this summer. However, as always with leaked details – we don’t suggest getting your heart set on them until they’re officially confirmed.
The Moto X (2015) is definitely looking like a decent handset though, with flagship style specs stuffed into every crevasse of the device. It all starts with the 5.2” QHD AMOLED display – which will likely be one of the sharpest we’ve ever seen from Motorola.
On top of this, we’re also reportedly being offered a Snapdragon 808 chipset and a whopping 4GB RAM, both of which should guarantee a fast and lag-free experience. Up to 64GB of internal storage is also expected – this is unlikely to offer memory card support, but with 64GB you shouldn’t really be struggling.
Motorola is also sticking a very friendly set of cameras onto the phone as well, with 16 megapixels on the back, and 5 megapixels on the front. Finally, a sizeable 3280mAh battery should also ensure that the QHD resolution doesn’t cause too much drain on the phone’s energy levels.
As showcased with the recent Motorola smartphones, we could also be getting the chance to design our own Moto X (2015) smartphone handsets. Rumour has it that the Moto Maker website will be in full working order when the Moto X handset does arrive this summer – meaning you won’t be stuck with a boring black handset.
Previous efforts allowed users to use numerous colours and natural style casings, whilst also designing the colour of the handset’s trim and even engrave a name on the back of the device.
The service has been around in the US for a while, but has only been recently been announced in the UK, with the Moto X (2015) looking certain to feature it.
The design itself is still to be confirmed for the handset as well, so we don’t actually know what the new phone will look like – but we’re not expecting a drastic change from the Moto X handset from last year.
