Moto X (2015) specs rumor: 3600 mAh battery, 5.5- inch FHD display and more
HellomotoHK is home to many a Motorola leak, and they seem to have a good inside scoop on the upcoming Moto X (2015). Not only did they recently give us a look at a gold/white version of the upcoming Motorola flagship, but today they are giving us a healthy list of specs.
The most exciting bit of the rumor will likely be the battery information. The handset is said to come with a massive 3600 mAh battery, far surpassing even beasts like the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and LG G4. In fact, it gets closer to the Motorola Droid Turbo realms.
In addition, the phone should come with a 5.5-inch FHD (1080p) display, a 21 MP rear-facing camera, a 5 MP front-facing shooter, Android 5.1.1, dual-SIM capabilities and support for microSD cards.
There’s a couple things I would like to touch on, here. For starters, if this rumor proves to be truthful, we won’t be seeing a QHD (2560x1440p) resolution, as we expected. This higher definition has become the standard in 2015 flagship handsets. Its dismissal will be disappointing to some, but let me reiterate something I always argue: an exemplary screen doesn’t need an amazingly high resolution. 1080p is still very crisp at these screen sizes, and what really matters most is other factors, such as color reproduction, brightness, contrast, etc. Not to mention, the battery life will likely be further elongated by keeping a 1080p panel.
Another factor that has me scratching my head is the possible addition of dual-SIM capabilities. Not because this is impossible, I see it very likely coming to international versions. This just so happens to be a feature the American market is not very supportive of. If I had to bet my cash on it, I would probably say the USA Moto X (2015) iterations won’t be touting said feature.
Regardless, these are all still rumors and we should treat them as such! Motorola has planned an event for tomorrow in New York and London, though. We are likely to see this phone then, so be ready!
Which specification are you most excited about? I am loving that battery size, and hope at least that part is true!
