mg

A Champagne gold color option of the Motorola Moto 360 smartwatch was briefly available on a pre-order on Amazon but it seems the product pages were pulled.

The smartwatch was up with two strap sizes – 18mm (shown below) and a 23mm one, both matching the color and both metal. Motorola started shipping Moto 360s to owners in two color options – silver and black – and with only leather watchstraps, leaving the metal ones for the fall.

mg2The metal bands themselves will be offered for $80 per band. The 23mm one was made available on Amazon for a brief period before it got pulled away – for $299 and the shipping period was for 2 to 3 months later. We do know that Gold Moto 360s are on their way. Let’s wait till we get it from Motorola themselves.

The Nexus X is allegedly being made by Motorola and judging by the specifications, it is a hell of a phone on paper. The specifications include Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 APQ8084 chipset with 2.7GHz quad-core CPU, Adreno 420 GPU, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of built-in memory. The screen has a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels (likely 5.2” in size).

A new rumor suggests that there will be a new Nexus this year which will launch somewhere around November. Codenamed Shamu, Motorola is expected to be the one making it. The codename which fits with the sea creature theme that Google has used so far to assign codenames to Nexus devices.

The fact that a device with this codename exists has been reported by the Google Bug tracker tool and backed by Android Police. The Shamu has a 5.9 inch screen on the front – which is the biggest screen a Nexus phone has ever had. Would this interest you? Are you looking for a Nexus Phablet?

Woah, This May Be Moto G-2!

without comments

moto-g-2Motorola has had it;s fair share of leaks in the past few months, we have had mysterious hardware appearing that we believed was the successor to the Moto X or a prototype of that.

What we have today is a leak that points towards a phone in the lower-mid spec range by the looks of it. Reportedly the company’s model XT 1068, the new Moto G would keep the original’s 720p resolution, and may go with another Snapdragon 400 SoC. The upgrade is expected to be in the camera department with an upgrade from the 5 MP version to 8 MP in the newer version.

This version could also have stereo front facing speakers. We are also expecting a successor to the Moto X soon since it was last August when the X was first released. What do you think the G+1 or G2 would bring with it?
