Moto X fix teases a 1080p smartphone in the works?
For some people, the 720p resolution on the display of the Moto X is a deal breaker. We don’t agree with that, as we’ve highly praised the device in our reviews and videos. Still, there is a clear need for Motorola to boost the resolution of the Moto X in its future variant, which is being rumored to be the Moto X+1. If you were wondering if there actually is a Moto x+1 in the works, well, a recent software tweak actually leaks its existence.
So, as the story goes, the recent Android 4.4.3 update to the Moto X brought a fix to the recent annoyance to international consumers that didn’t like the persistent carrier signage on the notification bar. Those of us who use AT&T smartphones know exactly how frustrating it is with notifications on Android, but this hadn’t been a problem on the International Moto X. Cool and all, but what makes this story hot, is that Motorola VP Punit Soni decided to post a screenshot of the option to switch the carrier signage as part of the Android 4.4.3 update. Why is it hot? Well, the screen resolution of the photo is 1080p.
It’s hard to tell when we can expect the Moto X+1, but hopefully this is the break that Motorola has been searching for.
