New unnamed Motorola phone leaks, not the Google X Phone [video]

by: Chris SmithMarch 13, 2013


With just over a day to go until the Galaxy S4 becomes official, we have more Motorola-related leaks, but it looks like the unknown Motorola phone doesn’t seem to be worthy of the Google X Phone title.

The Google X Phone is reportedly going to be Motorola’s flagship device this year, a handset that will be unveiled in mid-May at Google I/O 2013 and that will run a stock Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie version.

In the past few days we’ve seen not one, but two Google X Phone reports detailing potential specs and features for the device, but they were rather contradictory.

Now we have two leaked new Motorola handsets, the RAZR D1 and an unnamed one, which were spotted in Brazil. We’ll add to those the unnamed device featured in the image above (and video below,) which was seen in Vietnam.

This handset is definitely a new Motorola creation, but don’t get too excited, as it doesn’t seem to qualify for that X Phone moniker. The handset is apparently going to offer users a 4.65-inch AMOLED touchscreen display with 720p resolution and 320ppi density, Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro (or higher) processor, Adreno 320 GPU, 2GB of RAM and a 2200mAh battery under the hood.

Other features include a thin bezel, on-screen buttons, an unseen before “M” logo on the top of the display, a slim profile, non-removable curved back case, no micro SD support, and what looks to be stock Android without that many UI changes.

At best, this will be a mid-ranged device by 2013 standards, so is it possible that this particular device is that second mysterious handset spotted in Brazil earlier?

We’ll probably have to wait a while to see pictures of that X Phone unicorn leak, but at least we know Motorola is also working on at least a couple of new Android handsets for 2013.

Are you buying Motorola this year, or will you get something else?

  • Wow, never thought I’d say this about a Motorola but I really like that. Even if it is a mid-range phone spec-wise, I love the design and look of the phone. I wonder if it’s a potential Nexus device?

  • If it’s gonna have an amoled screen, then NO. Fed up with that crap on my two SGS and SGN phones.

  • Akhil P.A

    Its in Vietnam. Look at the network provider name. :)

  • M.Beg

    Its just like anyother android phone, boring

  • Poonperm Vardhanabindu

    its just a Nexus 4 with Motorola logo

  • Andrew Mezzi

    I can’t decide whether to wait form the X Phone or buy the first new Motorola to come to AT&T. I really want to get rid of my old Pantech. It’s still on Gingerbread.

    Smallest bezel ever? Sexiest phone ive seen so far, srsly.. all other phones may have 1080 but theyre huge with hugeass bezels (HTC one any1?) and if thats just midrange I cant wait to see what googolora’s flagship will be!

    • redouane chillout

      oh yea i love this phone :D its so perfect

  • aholsteinson

    Looks nice but they should really get rid of that horrible clock/weather widget.

    • Arsenal™

      dude that widget is a Motorola special just like the Sense flipclock is for HTC

      • aholsteinson

        I know but it still looks ugly.

  • Taurus_G4

    that looks just like N4 even the specs resemble apart from AMOLED eh

    • Glenn Mossel

      And that it is 4,65 inches instead of 4,7 inches and it has a bigger battery (2200 vs 2100)

  • CodeDisQus

    MID Range!! Those are some pretty awesome specs for a mid-range phone (2gb ram! S4 Pro!) I guess what will determine its mid range moniker is its price! hahaha! Lets hope its priced nicely and still has that sweet kevlar ;)

  • I’ll only purchase another Motorola phone only if it comes with an unlockable bootloader… Really hate that I’m unable to install a custom ROM on my Photon just for that.

    EDIT: Unnamed device is the RAZR D3:

    I honestly cant tell the difference between a 720 screen and a 1080 after a certain point. If this device were to have a 720 screen I wouldn’t mind, especially since the power drain is significantly lower than a 1080. It would be even better if it had a green Pholed screen.
