Details of Motorola’s next smartphone have been leaking, one spec at a time, for weeks now. Earlier today, we learnt that the phone will be launched in Canada ‘soon’ and will be carried exclusively by Rogers and while almost everything important about the phone is still a mystery, we now know that it indeed is fully ‘customizable’ as Google promised it would be. A few images of the phone’s front fascia, which for most phones is not removable, leaked today alongside the rear cover which was in different colors.
Rumors that the phone will be highly customizable in that the user can get to choose exactly what they want. The phone also boasts of it being ‘Made in the USA’, probably to appeal to the many patriotic buyers who feel that almost everything in their home is made in China. We also learnt earlier this week that the Motorola X will offer a wide variety of customized engravings, a special color trim and 16 pastel colored panels. What is unclear now though is whether the leaked front fascia images mean that users can also buy different colors of the front fascia at will and change when they need to or the panel is part of the phone. With modern touchscreen phones, it seems impossible to have a phone with an interchangeable front fascia.
The leaked images show the front fascia in two colors – black and white – both with the new Motorola logo. There haven’t been any reliable leaks or rumors regarding other specs of the Motorola X Phone but speculators reckon it will have a dual-core 1.7 GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC – which is just slightly faster than the processor the US version of Samsung Galaxy S3 came with and 1 GB RAM. The images show that the phone will most likely have a 4.7 inch full HD display and a very thin bezel.
We will update you on any new specs of this new phone as soon as we hear anything.
