The Moto X rumors and leaks seem not to be fading even as the launch date – August 1st draws closer and closer. An interesting addition is the molding of the Gorilla glass that covers the screen by a layer of a polymer that aides in helping the screen withstand bumps and bruises making it more durable than most competitor smartphones. The wrapping of the front face as well as the side of the device brings a clean, neat and stylish finish to the device as it completely covers the gap that is notably present on most phone manufacturers between the display, its sides and the rear shell. This new glass design referred to as “Moto magic glass” by Motorola will also have an added laminated aluminum structure that will complete its hidden internal structure making its frame much stronger on addition to its lighter and thinner form structure.
Moto X isn’t done yet as a boost to its network reception has been enhanced with the inclusion of the Dual LTE MIMO smart antennas along with a separate antenna for 2G/3G differing with the notably one antenna for both standards in most devices currently in the market. This new development and purported press images in addition to unannounced features from Taylor Wimberly, formerly of Android and Me awaits the official launch come August and as expected it won’t be further from the truth as depicted by his confidence in this statement;
“..It should deliver the best 4G LTE performance (faster data speeds and better reception). Most OEMs support 4G technologies on the same antenna as 2G/3G, but Moto will have 2 antennas dedicated to 4G LTE. There will be 5 antennas inside Moto X: 4G main, 4G diversity, 2G/3G main, GPS, and BT/Wi-Fi…”
Additionally new images from Moto evangelist Guy Kawaski who posted up pictures of a little Moto party at corporate headquarters last week brought to life the potential color choices to the new Moto X that had earlier made an ad to a variety of newspapers in the US that the green color from those pictures exists and is already in use by what we would assume to be a Moto employee. Images in light of the earlier newspaper ad point towards a light blue, red, purple, an incredibly bright green in addition to the white and black colors that had earlier come to surface. This on the marketing level seems to have eyed the whole market population with both the youth and the corporate portion of the market having being considered not to mention both sexes as evident with the range of colors.
Motorola will be unveiling the Moto X on the 1st of August in New York and Pocketdroid (dot) net will keep you in the loop with each development.
