Motorola X Phone Official Announcement Postponed Until “August or Later”

Bad news for Motorola and Android fans, as Google seems to have delayed the official reveal of the X Phone until late summer.

Last time reported that Motorola X Phone, the device was scheduled for a May/June unveil, probably at Google I/O or a few weeks later. Apparently Google is not happy with the development of the X Phone and decided to postpone the official announcement until “August or later.” As PhoneArena reports citing sources close to the matter, Motorola X Phone is still in the early phases of development, which means that, by the time it goes official, everything that we know about the phone might be changed. So far, Motorola seems to be aiming at a 4.7-inch capacitive touchscreen display with full HD (1080p) support and a very thin bezel.  There already are a few prototypes available, but each seems to have slightly different specs. For example, one of the prototypes spotted several weeks ago did not have microSD card slot for memory expansion.

The device was powered by Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system with few customizations, though the final product is expected to be fully customizable. Rumor has it that Motorola X Phone will be the first in a series of customizable smartphones, a concept that Google and Motorola wish to introduce in the next couple of months. Future models in the X series will be different depending on the owner, who will be able to choose the phone’s hardware and the material it will made of (metal, carbon fiber, or plastic). There will be lots of color options to choose from as well. The new timeframe for the Motorola X Phone reveal comes in line with initial rumors that suggested Google plans to put it on sale in Q4 2013, but this can change if the search giant is not happy with how the things are going with the development of the device. Stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
