One of the most heavily rumored Smartphones of recent history is none other than the Motorola X Phone, which has the imagination of the world running riot despite the fact that it might not even exist. Nevertheless, we’re once again being assured by the trusty masses of the rumor mill that a new Motorola flagship is in the pipeline for this year and is scheduled to launch no later than July…at least in an initial wave.
According to Android and Me, the Motorola X Phone will first appear in July by way of a limited or exclusive launch, to be followed by a full-scale global release date closer to Thanksgiving. This would appear to add credence to previous reports by the Wall Street Journal which suggested that a series of supply and manufacturing issued had delayed production of the X Phone, forcing Motorola to hold back on the Smartphone’s launch.
Meanwhile, there’s still plenty of chatter surrounding whether or not the Motorola X Phone will offer the unique novelty/convenience of full customization options for buyers. It had previously been rumored that a basic mainframe would be offered by way of its processor, screen size and outer-casing, but that buyers would be able to choose their own specs and features – the first build-your-own Smartphone to hit the market.
However, a slightly more credible take on the subject has surfaced this week and suggests that customization will feature heavily with the X Phone, though will not expand to most internal specs. Instead, users will be able to pick from several storage space options as usual, along with a series of different materials and colors for the outer-casing.
There’s also talk of a few tweaks to the Android Key Lime Pie OS it will undoubtedly carry, in order to appeal to those favoring social networking, productivity, media consumption and so on.
