THE NEXT MOTO X

MAY PACK A SMARTER, METAL-CLAD DE­SIGN

Fiji Sun - - Techworld -

Way back in De­cem­ber, ru­mors sug­gested that Len­ovo’s next big Mo­torola phone would go in a very dif­fer­ent than ages past, in­clud­ing a metal chas­sis and a cu­ri­ous cam­era bump. Well, those ru­mors just got some val­i­da­tion. Hel­lomoto HK has posted images of what ap­pears to be both the next Moto X and its Droid-branded Ver­i­zon equiv­a­lent. Sure enough, they hint at a flat­ter, metal­lic body with a more elab­o­rate cam­era ar­ray -- are those dots on the side a clue to laser aut­o­fo­cus­ing?

There’s also a fin­ger­print reader on the front, which puts the ki­bosh on the Pure Edi­tion’s front­fac­ing stereo sound... sorry, folks.

As for what’s in­side? That’s less than clear, but sup­posed bench­marks from late last month hint that the top-end Mo­torola phone will carry a Snap­dragon 820 pro­ces­sor and 4GB of RAM.

It’s par for the course among 2016 An­droid flag­ships, then. You might not have to wait long to see how ac­cu­rate these leaks are, though, as Len­ovo has been teas­ing the launch of new Mo­torola de­vices on June 9. The only ques­tion is whether or not you’ll see this par­tic­u­lar phone among them.

Although a high-end Moto seems like a good fit for that event, we won’t be sur­prised if you see some­thing else on stage (such as the next Moto G) in a month’s time.
