What Is Motorola Telling Us With Their New Moto X Ad?


The Motorola Moto X is a hotly anticipated device, but what do we really know about it? Not too much, other than it has been said to be ‘contextually aware’. That changes today, as a new ad has arrived for the Moto X.

The ad, appearing in today’s edition of The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, and The Wall Street Journal, says that the Moto X will be “the first smartphone you can design yourself”.

Okay – that doesn’t give us details on specs but it does tell us that the Moto X is real and is very different from other phones out there right now. So what exactly will we be “designing ourself?” That’s a good question.

According to @evleaks (Evan Blass), the device is coming with a 1.7GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro MSM8960 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 720p display, 16GB of storage, 10MP rear and 2MP front cameras and Android 4.2.2.

What’s left to customize then? Perhaps we will have the option of a few different display sizes, processor types, or even camera specs? This will certainly prove to be a bold move, if true.

It could also be as simple of a choice as letting us choose plastic or metal, or even a choice of customized colors from dozens of options. We really can’t say one way or another just yet.

To keep up the 4th of July spirits, the Motorola ad proudly declares the Moto X will be “built in the US”. While some believe that this will keep its price a tad higher than other high-end handsets, some are suggesting that we might see an aggressive pricing strategy.

So what do you think, are you excited for the Moto X?
