Moto X Phone Spotted with Google’s Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt

Listen to this article

A Google-inspired and Motorola-created Moto X Phone was spotted on a Vietnamese blog early this year creating suspicions that the Google-Motorola partnership is about to release its first device. This was later confirmed by Motorola which indicated that the upcoming phone is good at managing power and quite alert of the environment within. That is to say that its cameras have bigger lens and high pixel levels while the internals is powered by a dual-core processor at 1.7Ghz with RAM at 2Gb and internal storage at 16Gb.

In addition, the screen’s resolution is at 720p and the device contains sleek curves and with a back possibly made of carbon-fiber. This mystery phone was again spotted during the Allen and Co media event with Google chairman Eric Schmidt attending, and holding the phone. The only difference is the one he’s carrying is white while earlier photos of Moto X reveal a black color.


What matters:

  • The Camera is good. Not HTC One good, but very capable.
  • Battery life is great: 4 hours on, 90 minutes screen time, still at 68%.
  • Saying “Okay, Google Now” opens it up for search. This is the “always on” feature.
  • There is a MotoID account, like a Samsung or HTC would have. You can use your Google info to sign in. No need to create a special profile.
  • The test software was Android 4.2.2
  • Typical Motorola build quality, meaning really nice and sturdy.

What doesn’t matter:

  • 4.4” Screen, 720p, 320dpi
  • Battery size is around 2,000mAh, though no official word yet. (We think 2,100mAh is likely)
  • The model tested came with 16GB storage, and 11.9 available.
  • 10MP camera

The chairman was kind enough to show off the device without uttering a word about its nature, with the phone revealing and confirming its resemblance to the Moto X Phone spotted in the leaks. Nevertheless, the US-only manufactured device is soon to hit the market no word as to the price yet and the actual date of availability.
