Update, September 2: @upleaks provided another piece of the Bounce puzzle. Turns out Bounce will be a new device that Motorola will market under the Moto X Force moniker. Here’s another shot of the Force/Bounce, from the same @upleaks.
Original post, August 31: Despite announcing its latest flagship, the Moto X Style (aka Moto X Pure) earlier this month, it seems Motorola isn’t slowing down anytime soon. Not only do rumors point to two new Verizon Droids in the near future, a new tweet from @upleaks has now outed the Motorola Bounce as well.
According to the well-known leaker, the Moto Bounce has a 5.43-inch QHD display and is powered by a Snapdragon 810 with 3GB RAM. Other specs include 32 or 64GB storage, a 21MP camera (likely the one from the Style), and a 3760 mAh battery. The phone will also reportedly offer a “shatterproof” design meaning it will have probably a MIL-STD rating. The rumor doesn’t mention it, but we wouldn’t be too shocked if it ends up with water/dust resistance as well, but at the very least it is probably splashproof.[related_videos align=”center” type=”custom” videos=”567112,629693″]
So what is the Bounce? While we really don’t know for sure at this stage, we wouldn’t be too shocked if the Motorola Bounce is just another name for the upcoming Droid Turbo 2. After all, the original Droid Turbo launched with specs that were more advanced than even the Moto X. The Droid Turbo eventually arrived to international markets under the name Moto Maxx, and so it stands to reason that the Bounce could be the international variant of the Turbo 2.
Obviously, this is all speculation at this point, so we wouldn’t jump to any conclusions just yet. Based on the very little we know about the Bounce, what do you think so far? Does a more compact flagship with a Snapdragon 810 appeal to you or are you perfectly happy with the larger 5.7-inch Moto X Style?
