Keep your next-generation Google Nexus and even your Samsung Galaxy S4 release date rumors – word on the street is that Android Key Lime Pie will make its grand debut with none other than the fabled Motorola X Phone.
And as far as names alone go at least, it doesn’t get much cooler than this.
According to a lavish dose of new rumors surfacing over the course of the weekend, Google I/O in May has been singled-out as the official arrival date not only of Android Key Lime Pie, but the unannounced Motorola X Phone than will bring it to the masses. In addition, we’re also told that the next Superphone from Motorola will arrive with a lofty 5-inch screen and come with virtually no bezel, allowing for an edge-to-edge display panel.
Contrary to most expectations however, the report goes on to state that the Motorola X Phone will in no way carry the Nexus branding, but will instead represent the creation of an brand-new sub-range which will in essence take over from, or sit alongside the Nexus roadmap.
The news comes despite a statement from Google’s Larry Page, who last month said that it was at present too early days for a Motorola Nexus to be launched, given the way in which the LG Nexus 4 is still the biggest thing on the market – or not, as stock-shortages would have it. However, he did say that the Google I/O arrival of an X Phone would represent the culmination of all efforts since the search engine giant bought out Motorola Mobility back in 2011.
As such, we can assume for certain that something game-changing this way comes.
There has been very little to go on and not much to get excited about since the two companies merged, but it goes without saying that pioneering Android Key Lime Pie even temporarily would be just what was need to bring Motorola handsets right back to the top of the industry.
Should the reports hold water, expect a release date for both Android Key Lime Pie and the Motorola X Phone sometime this summer.
