Slick Moto X Camera App with Gesture Control Exposed in Leaked APK

The buildup of anticipation for the impending Moto X smartphone, the new flagship phone produced by the marriage of Motorola and Google, is killing mobile enthusiasts. The rumored specs alone are excellent--a dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 8960 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, 10MP rear-facing camera, 2MP front-facing camera, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean--but the Android Police have received an anonymous tip about the Moto X camera’s UI, and a leak of the MotCamera APK allows users to take it for a spin.

Obviously, there are limitations, as the software is designed for use on the Moto X’s hardware, but apparently the software will run on a Nexus 4 with Android 4.3 as well as a Samsung Galaxy Note II with Android 4.2.2.

The camera works, it’s possible to take single and burst shots as well as shoot video, and the tutorial is there. Controls including front-to-back camera toggling, swipe to open, touch to focus, flash mode, toggling the shutter sound on and off, and geo-tagging are all present and working, as well.

The intriguing wrist double-flick feature doesn’t work, though, and HDR mode and slo-motion mode can’t be enabled; the panorama mode crashes, too.

Unfortunately, it appears that downloads are now disabled, so you can’t play with the APK yourself, so we’ll have to settle for a description and some photos to tide us over until the Moto X finally makes it debut.

I have tried and tested this Moto X Stock camera app on my Samsung Galaxy SIII, It seems quite stable for a lighter use. Downloaded it from here http://axeetech.com/2013/07/29/download-and-install-motox-leaked-stock-camera-app-on-your-android-smartphone/
