Google Nexus fans will have to wait until late this year for the release date of the 2015 native Android flagship, but they could instead consider the compelling alternatives. Motorola will soon unpack its latest batch of powerful devices and like their predecessors, the Android inside is rendered as pure as possible.

Android followers can very well pick out from the premium line up that smartphone maker Motorola is expected to reveal soon. Thankfully, leaked specs on these devices abound, which in turn provides hints that the popular Moto X and Motorola Droid Turbo are geared up for inevitable upgrades.

Moto X 2015

For the most part, the last Moto X models delivered to satisfaction. The specifications were decent enough and the cash setback was reasonable. But one key feature that Android fans would love to get a real bump up is the Moto X rear shooter. This is one area that makes the device a touch underwhelming.

That could change soon with the 2015 refresh, according to Phone Arena. The Android blog site reported last week that Motorola is pouring sufficient amount of resources to make sure that the next Moto X will unbox with a killer camera combo.

The unconfirmed report stated that a 16-megapixel main shooter is in the works and it will be paired with a front-facing 2MP snapper. Likewise, the whole new camera menu will include optical image stabilization or OIS that will permit the capture of high-quality images regardless of a shaky hand or lighting condition.

Its unnamed source, Phone Arena added, also claimed that the Moto X 2015 update will deliver a bevy of fresh video recording capabilities, foremost of which is recording in the following resolutions: 720p at 240fps, 1080p at 60/120fps and 4K at 30fps.

The Droid Turbo

Another Motorola device that Android fans may find irresistible once it comes out is the 2015 edition of the normally high-specced Droid Turbo. Pocket Droid stumbled upon earlier this week a Reddit posting that listed the following device model numbers – Motorola XT1578, Motorola XT1585 and Motorola XT192A.

The blog report was not exactly rich in details but three specs have been highlighted so far. The devices will sport display panel with 2K resolution, will be powered by Android Lollipop 5.1 and are likely will be exclusive for Verizon. The latter is the clear giveaway that all three models are variants of the Motorola Droid Turbo 2015 edition.

It should be noted, however, that the 2015 builds of the Moto X and Droid Turbo will unbox minus the upcoming Android M. Such honor, it appears, is reserved by Google for its Nexus 2015 flagship that likely is scheduled for a release date between October and November of the same year.
