Motorola is spending a lot of time on Twitter (I’m still baffled that Motorola isn’t using Google+) teasing the Moto X in every possible way with an incredible amount of pictures related to nothing, like a beach, a bunch of bikes, a tattoo or a hat. The only thing I found in common between those pictures is color, every picture has a distinct color, something that stands out, like the picture with the bikes, there are a lot of light blue bikes or the one for the beach has some bright-colored bracelets. These tease absolutely nothing but they do keep us thinking about the Moto X and what could possibly be so distinct about this phone for Motorola to go with a campaign like this.
Today Motorola Tweeted another picture, but this one says nothing at all, it’s a 1000 x 1000 pixels square image with “moto x” and “August 1, 2013” written on it on top of a black background with a some white noise on top of it. As I said, it says nothing. I even tried some processing on the image to see if there was anything hidden, I tried inverting the colors or changing the color levels but nothing came up. the image is as simple as it looks.
We’re only left with the wait for two more days and the rumors of what the device might have. A 4.7 inch 720 x 1280 screen is expected, along with Motorola’s new X8 processor, a 10 megapixel ClearPixel camera and the features introduced with the Droid line from Verizon like Touchless Control, which even recognizes your voice so no one else can activate it, the gesture based camera and the Active display. Also, the Moto X should have some sort of new sensors and software so that the phone will know when it’s in your pocket, or when you’re in a car, this was said by Dennis Woodside, Motorola’s CEO some time ago.
The Moto X is assembled in the U.S. and is expected to be available on all carriers and for a really low price with a rumored $299 off-contract.
Just a couple more days and we’ll get all the info, stick around for more news on the Moto X.
