Motorola Moto X 2015 coming to Android Market

Motorola’s last two flagships have been great phones that really didn’t get the appreciation they deserved. Maybe with the 2015 model, the new Lenovo subsidiary will convince buyers to skip the Galaxy and pick up something from Moto Maker. That’s likely to be one of the first selling points for the Moto X refresh. As with past devices, you’ll be able to choose the colors of the various components, even swapping the boring plastic shell for wood or leather.

Supposed specs for the new Moto X have leaked, but take these with a large grain of salt. We’re looking at a 5.2-inch QHD AMOLED, 4GB of RAM, a 3280mAh battery, and a snapdragon 808 (instead of the warmer 810. As for the camera, which has traditionally been a weak point for Motorola, but it’s allegedly going with a 16MP OIS sensor.

Motorola’s build of Android is almost completely stock, but Motorola then adds genuinely useful features on top of it. For example, there’s Moto Display to wake up the screen in power saving mode to tell you when you’ve got new notifications. You can dismiss them right on the spot without waking the phone up, or you can launch them all from Moto Display.

Motorola will likely sell the Moto X through at least a few carriers, but it also sells unlocked devices directly. Those will get the fastest updates, but even the carrier versions aren’t bad in that department. You can expect this one around August.
