'Motorola Moto X' Specs & Release: Moto X 4th Gen Leak Details New Design, Camera Upgrade & More [Rumors]
Motorola has been known to make the most affordable smartphone today, with great specs and reliable features. The company has just won this year's best value-for-money phone award by the tech news outlet, Phone Arena. With the rumored release of its new Motorola Moto X, consumers are definitely excited of what the company will offer this time.
Next year will be a big year for the smartphone industry as big players will release big surprises that give users plenty of options to choose from.
Depending on how a certain user likes his or her phone, the market should be an ocean to pick the desired gadget. Fans got a bit excited when an alleged prototype picture of a Motorola smartphone made of metal casing leaked on a Chinese website CN Beta.
According to a report relayed by Phone Arena, the phone may be the 4th Gen Moto X, which sources told that the picture may just be a design sample and the actual device may look different. The picture has the famous Motorola logo on the back of what appears to be an oversized smartphone.
If the photo is indeed the actual design of the next Motorola release, this could be something new for the company who did not have a metal design smartphone ever.
According to a report from Tech Insider, if the speculations are correct, the all-metal design may raise the price of the Motorola Moto X, which came out at a relatively cheap rate of $400.
The Motorola Moto X is second only to Nexus 5 as the cheapest premium smartphone in the market. The latter has a smaller screen which is priced at $380.
The price will be a big factor for consumers, especially that Huawei and Google's all-metal designed smartphones are priced at a bit higher price of $500.
Another thing observed on the photo is the camera, which looks really big compared to previous releases from the company. It may signify Motorola's effort to step up the capability of their mobile camera.
Motorola's phone camera has been a non-factor compared to how the competitors are improving their camera features, Phone Arena reported.
The photo of the phone is totally different from what people are used to when it comes to Motorola designs.
Does it mean the company is taking a huge step towards changes? Tech fans will soon find out once the Motorola Moto X Gen 4 comes out.
