The forthcoming Motorola X Phone is already making waves across the tech world with one industry expert claiming the Android device could be a “real game changer”.
Hugh Bradlow, chief technology officer for Australia’s leading mobile phone provider Telstra, has reportedly told senior colleagues that the X Phone will be “a real breakthrough, a game changer that will put pressure on Samsung and Apple.”
If rumours are anything to go by the device is already shaping up to be quite substantial with a 5-inch display, shatter-proof Kevlar casing, 3,300mAh battery and 128GB internal storage.
It will be the first smartphone to be developed by the brand since the mobile arm of Motorola was acquired by Google last year. It is thought that Google has been working on the X Phone for quite a while now and according to an anonymous source speaking to Australian technology site Smarthouse, the X Phone will bring software capabilities not currently available on Samsung or Apple smartphones.
The source claimed: “The software is really powerful and it pulls together Google services like no other manufacturer has done in the past.”
Google has enjoyed considerable success with its high-specced, low-cost Nexus 4 smartphone, a device manufactured by LG. But, the X Phone is already being predicted to eclipse this following its expected launch at the Google I/O developer conference in May.
Speculation also suggests that the X Phone will ship exclusively with Android Key Lime Pie, the next generation of Google’s mobile platform, but again this is unconfirmed as of yet.
