Motorola will reportedly release the Moto X 2014 successor -- dubbed the Moto X 2015 -- in September. In addition, a slew of key Moto X 2015 specifications and features have been leaked.
STJS Gadgets is the first tech site to break the news on the third-generation Moto X. Going by the report, the Moto X 2015 specifications will include a 5.2-inch display, packed with a killer Quad HD or 2K screen resolution of 1,440 x 2,560 pixels. Notably, these display details translate to a pixel density of 565 ppi. Meanwhile, in comparison, the predecessor Moto X 2014 features the same display size, however, the screen resolution is 1,080 x 1,920 pixels.
Under the hood, the Moto X 2015 will reportedly be powered by a hexa-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 808) processor and backed by an impressive 4 GB of RAM configuration. In comparison, the 2014 version comes powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC and backed by 2 GB of RAM. On the software front, the upcoming handset will run on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS out of the box, whereas the Moto X 2014 runs on Android 5.0 OS. As for memory configuration, the Moto X 2015 will come equipped with 32 GB or 64 GB of in-built storage, same as the 2014 version.
Speaking of camera configuration, the third-generation Moto X is believed to sport a solid 16 MP rear-facing unit, complete with Clear Pixel technology. To top it off, the front-facing snapper will be a generous 5 MP unit for capturing selfies. On the other hand, another report from STJS Gadgets suggests that the 16 MP camera unit on the third-generation Moto X will support Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) in order to get rid of the shaky hands problem sabotaging the otherwise stunning image/video capture. Additionally, the main camera unit will be capable of recording 4K and slo-mo videos. By comparison, the Moto X 2014 houses a 13 MP primary sensor and a 2 MP secondary snapper. Moreover, the battery capacity of the predecessor is 2,300 mAh unit, whereas the successor will feature a killer 3,280 mAh unit. In any case, readers should note that Motorola has not yet confirmed the Moto X 2015 release date or specifications.
