Motorola X Phone might debut the rumoured Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie as Google looks to build on the success achieved by its last smartphone, Nexus 4. Since Google has taken over Motorola Mobility, which manufactures handsets, it could start a new line of products for the search-engine giant. Motorola X Phone was also reported not to be a Nexus device.
The release rumours of Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie have been emerging since a long time, but were temporarily laid to rest as Google launched Android 4.1 with Nexus 4. Speculations about the features of Motorola X Phone suggest that it will comprise a 5-inch bezel-less and edge-to-edge display.
Google I/O developer conference in from May 15-17 is reported to be the platform for the announcement of the Motorola X Phone. The conference is rumoured to be the launch platform for the next Nexus offering from LG and Google and a 7.7-inch Nexus tablet.
Motorola X Phone is rumoured to include either a quad-core processor or octa-core CPUs. If the new offering from the US company uses quad-core processor, then it would be a first instance for the firm. Droid RAZR HD and Droid RAZR Maxx HD series came with a dual-core Snapdragon processor. With Corning releasing Gorilla Glass 3, consumers could be expecting more changes.
Motorola has not seen much success in the smartphone market in the recent years, but with the launch of an Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie operated 5-inch smartphone, the Google-owned company might rise to its previous position in the market. The X Phone would be competing with the speculated Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC M7, LG Optimus G2, all rumoured to feature a 5-inch display.
