Motorola recently announced the Moto X smartphone and the plethora of features it brings forth. One among them was the ability to interact with the device without even holding the smartphone, which is achievable through voice recognition. While this appeared to be a very unique feature at the time, it now seems like most future flagships will have the same feature. Well, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 chipset apparently has this feature built in by default, which can be utilized accordingly by the manufacturers.
This is exciting news as most upcoming flagships will be based on the Snapdragon 800 chip, with the Sony Xperia Z Ultra being one of the first. The likes of the LG G2 as well as the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 are rumored to pack the same chipset on board. Whether the manufacturers will decide to include this feature is a different question altogether, but it’s good to know that the support is firmly in place. So it seems like Motorola won’t have dibs on the ‘always on’ feature for a long time. Here’s a video of the always on feature as shown on the Moto X.
