Motorola X Phone: New Rumors Arrive


A couple weeks back, we heard a number of rumors about the Motorola X phone, including the compelling tidbit that the phone would be sold to-order with some degree of customizable hardware options. Now that same source is back with more details about this eagerly-awaited Android.

First up, some new info on that customizability. The source now claims that “the options will not be as broad as was originally reported,” though they could still include things as major as the design of the handset itself. That could involve materials used for the phone’s exterior, even including exotic (and presumably expensive) options like carbon fiber. You could also look for a wide assortment of color options.

As for the hardware itself, there might be Motorola-logo-adorned software-definable button around back, but that just sounds like it’s asking to get pressed accidentally. Spec wise, the X could be on-par with devices like the HTC One, though might be a little behind the curve – the source says specifically that it won’t measure up to the GS4 or the next iPhone.

Regarding the launch, the X should get here in July. Supposedly, Motorola will follow that up with a few new Droid models, and could also be tapped to manufacture the Nexus 5 closer to the end of the year.
