It seems like the Motorola X smartphone should be hitting the market very soon and will be dubbed Google X.
revelation is based on a report by Android Headlines via a Japanese
blog Rbmen. This report suggests that Motorola X smartphone has made an
appearance on the AnTuTu Benchmark results. This smartphone carries the
name Google X, which is very similar to Motorola X and hence making the
blog believe that these two may actually be the same smartphone.
interesting fact that has been unearthed through AnTuTu Benchmark
result is that this Google X smartphone will run on Android 5.0.1 (aka
Android Key Lime Pie). This means that Google's next version of Android
could well be in Beta stages and on track to be launched at the Google
I/O, which will be taking place in the month of May.
Google X smartphone is also reported to run on a processor that clocks
up to 1.5GHz. However, it is difficult at this stage to predict whether
it is Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, Snapdragon 800 or Tegra 4 that has been
deployed in this smartphone. However earlier rumours had suggested that
Motorola X smartphone will clock speed to the tunes of 2GHz and have a
quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.
Given that Google X
has already started popping in benchmark results is also indication that
the smartphone might be launched in the near future.
As per past
rumours, Motorola X smartphone will be highly customisable, will have a
4,000mAh battery and might be a water-proof device.
Earlier in the
month, Google's Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt had shared that the
smartphones coming up at Motorola are "very, very impressive." Schmidt
had also remarked that, the new set of products will be phenomenal and
these smartphones should not be termed as just phones, but
While Jim Wicks, Design Chief at Motorola was heard
saying that "if you like smaller form-factor devices or stock Android,
you're going to be excited."
So for now the Motorola X - or Google X - continues to be a mystery but we are sure to get more details in due course.
