Motorola X Android 5 Phone Could Launch at Google I/O

The Motorola X has popped up before but with scant details we have had little to go on and with this expected to be the flagship model from the Google takeover there is much to anticipate.

Motorola has been relatively quiet since the Google buy out with no handset to really compete at the top end of the market allowing the domination of Apple and Samsung to continue. Now the latest rumour points to Motorola getting ahead of the game with their next phone release.

The Motorola X looks like it will be jumping in on the 5-inch bandwagon with an edge to edge display but the big news is that the phone could be the first to ship with the much awaited Android 5.0, Key Lime Pie, operating system.

A post on an Android discussion forum suggests the phone could be debuted at the Google I/O conference in May and is expected to be classed as a whole new range of phones rather than taking on the Nexus name of other Google releases.

The phone will apparently have a UI similar to the Nexus handsets but the company looks to be moving away from this to create a stand-alone range.

Being the first to market would certainly be a feather in the cap of Motorola and if the handset stands up against the Samsung offering then we could see some good results for the Google owned company this year.
