Moto X (2016) Flagship – Android 6.1 Marshmallow with Specs and Release Date


Motorola definitely likes to stick to its patterns of launching new devices every 10 months, so given the fact that back in July, two Moto X gizmos were launched, it’s safe to talk about a new one.

Rumor has it that the company is planning to launch a brand new Moto X handset in May/June of next year, this device may be called Moto X 4th Gen or Moto X 2016. If it decides to launch a new and improved version of the Moto X Play or the X Style device, the upcoming devices might be named Moto X Play 2 and Moto X Style 2. If you’re curious about some of the specs and other features that this new device will have, keep reading.

The upcoming Moto X may sport a 5.8-inch display with QuadHD resolution. If the company also decides to launch the Moto X Pure edition (2016 version) or Moto X Style 2, a 6-inch display with UHD resolution may be included. Motorola Moto X Play and Pure edition have the waterproof certificate, so it’s only fair that their follower have the same certificate and maybe Motorola will throw in the dust-resistant one as well. As for the chipsets, Motorola will opt for a Snapdragon 820 in Moto X 4th Generation. This is a strong processor which can be used for recording 4K videos without having to log in.

As for the RAM part, Motorola might just go with the 4 GB of RAM option for the Moto X device, the back end snapper was upgraded to 21 MP and it came with Dual LED flash in Moto X Play as well as the Pure one. However Moto X Style (Pure) is the only one that can record videos with QHD resolution. This is why in Moto X (4th Gen), Motorola may bump up the snapper to 27 MP and may add the 4K video support. As for the front snapper, it might be an 8 MP one with LED included.

Battery wise, Motorola opted for a 3000 mAh battery in Moto X Pure and a 3630 mAh battery unit for the Play one. The new Motorola device might be juiced up by a 4000 mAh battery and the latter will also support the fast charge element, Type-C USB port or the fingerprint scanner might also be part of the package. In 2016, the Android 6.1 might also be unveiled, so the new Moto X 4th Gen might have the latter on board.
