Motorola’s X Phone Might Launch a Bit Later Than Expected


Where’s your flagship at, Motorola? The HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S 4 have long passed simply being announced, and will soon be showing up in the hands of Android fans everywhere. Motorola, though, is taking its sweet time in releasing anything capable of competing with these heavyweights. We’ve been talking a lot about this rumored “X” phone that would be the manufacturer’s next great effort, but just when will the model actually hit carriers? While recent rumors have talked about July availability, the latest update suggests we’ll have an even longer wait.

Now, the X phone might not come out until August, if not even later.

Supposedly, things are still very much in the prototype stage at this date, which may explain the need for a longer wait before we’ll have the chance to buy the X. The source providing this new availability info also shares a couple specs, like a HTC-One-like 4.7-inch 1080p screen, as well as the absence of any microSD port for expansion.

Late summer is shaping up to be a busy time in the Android world, with the Galaxy Note III and LG’s Optimus G II both expected for IFA 2013. Let’s hope that this extra time will let Motorola give the X phone what it needs to really shine.
