Motorola Moto X specs, features, price and release date in India
Motorola is hoping to reinvent the smartphone market with its new 'build your own' device. We round up everything about the Moto X
It took a long time coming but now that it's finally here, the Moto X is quite a device to take in. Off late, Motorola has been off the smartphone charts but this 'build your own' handset might be just what will help it get back into the game.
Motorola unveiled its latest offering at a low-key launch event in New York City last week. Since its launch, the phone has been getting more than its fair share of attention, specially with its malleable features.
The Moto X is good looking device, though it does resemble all the currently popular Android handsets in more ways than one. It has a slim body with dimensions of 129.3 x 65.3 x 10.4mm and 130g, slightly curved edges and a large screen. Motorola has designed its phone to be comfortable to use and its rounded edges all around, coupled with its rubberized plastic casing, ensure that it is convenient to grip and carry. Gorilla Glass gives the device protection against everyday wear and tear.
The feature that most stands out about the Moto X is its large display. Motorola has cleverly designed its phone with a conveniently sized display of 4.7-inch but has made it look bigger with its thin bezels. In this way, the RGB AMOLDED display appeals to those who prefer large screens as well as those who desire a handset that is smaller than 5-inches. The screen packs in a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and a pixel density of 316ppi, making for some gorgeous imagery.
Motorola has built its latest offering around its X8 Mobile Computing System, in two variants - one with 16 GB of in built storage and another with 32 GB. This set-up consists of a dual-core 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, an Adreno 320 quad-core GPU and a number of language and contextual computing processors. Helping the chip-set to do a speedy, efficient job are a 2 GB RAM, a 2,200 mAh battery and Android's stock 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system. The Moto X offers users a host of connectivity options including 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, aGPS, NFC, GPRS, EDGE, Bluetooth, GLONASS, microUSB and Miracast Wireless.
