Rogers Moto X Demo Video Reveals Google Android Superphone Coming in August
The tech demo heavily emphasizes Google Now, which Moto X users can engage without touching the device. In the demo, a woman is shown asking Google Now what the weather will be like in Toronto while she types away on a computer, never having to reach down to tap the handset. Have a look:
Hands-free operation of Google Now isn't the only thing the Moto X has going for it. The device boasts active updates, which translates into display notifications on the screen rather than a vague flashing LED that doesn't really tell you anything.
Moto X owners can activate the built-in camera with two quick flicks of the wrist. Once it's launched, you can snap photos by pressing anywhere on the touchscreen rather than hunting for a dedicated shutter button. If you hold your finger on the screen, it will take several photos at once.
It was previously leaked that the Moto X will ship with a 4.4-inch display (1280x720), 1.7GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 8960 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, 10MP rear-facing camera, 2MP front-facing camera, and of course Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
