Backing up the early rumors of those taking a quick interest in the project, the Motorola X Phone destined for launch this summer will apparently indeed carry the Nexus branding and be known as the Nexus X.
According to a string of new reports making their way onto the web this week, the new Motorola flagship Smartphone will be another collaborative effort involving Google and not hit the market as an independent Motorola X Smartphone. Ever since Google took the reins at Motorola, there has been endless talk of a new Nexus Smartphone arriving with exclusive rights to Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie and it appears the Motorola Nexus X is indeed said Smartphone.
The reports would seem to contradict several others doing the rounds this week that claim a new LG Nexus 5 is in the pipeline, which for all intents and purposes has been earmarked for the same duties and prestige as the Motorola Nexus X. Erring on the side of common sense, it seems extremely unlikely that the successor to the LG Nexus 4 would take precedence over one of Google’s own in-house projects, therefore if the Nexus 5 even exists it will most likely land significantly after the Motorola Nexus X.
With regard to specs and features, it’s still very much a case of hearsay but all signs appear to be pointing toward a 1080p true HD screen of 5-inches, 2GB of Ram, a quad-core processor, 13-megapixel camera and the rest of the industry standards we’ve come to expect from a top-tier Smartphone in 2013.
If true, the Motorola Nexus X will be going head to head with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S4, the iPhone 6 and the HTC M7 in the race for the top-spots, though could have the usual Nexus ace-in-the-hole of the trademark bargain-basement price tag.
