The mysterious Moto X, the next-generation Motorola smartphone pitched as the first telephone developed entirely by Google (which now owns Motorola), is to come in a wide assortment of colored handsets with the options of uploading a wallpaper and putting a personal engraving on the back, according to rumors relayed by ABC News and photos posted on the French web site NoWhereElse.fr.
Users would be able to configure the look of their Moto X on Motorola's website and put different colors on the front and back of their handset. According to NoWhereElse.fr, which has posted pilfered pictures of the future Moto X's putative handsets, customers will be able to choose from among no fewer than 16 different colors. Apparently, it will also be possible to have the back of the handset engraved and upload a personal photograph to use for your wallpaper.
On the other hand, not a word has been said about customizing the internal components. The most recent information relayed mentions a 4.7 inch screen (for a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels), a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor and 2 GB of RAM.
A customizable smartphone assembled in the US
In an ad placed in a wide array of American newspapers on Wednesday, July 3, Motorola hypes the new gadget as an object that individuals can configure entirely: "The first smartphone that you can design yourself. Because today you should have the freedom to design the things in your life to be as unique as you are. And this is just the beginning."
Motorola's X phone may be launched in the fall and is to run on the latest version of Android Jelly Bean (4.2.2).
Although the processors are from Taiwan and the screens from Korea, Motorola also vaunts the fact that its upcoming smartphone will be "the first smartphone designed, engineered and assembled in the USA."
