Android loyalists looking for more modular options in the smartphone market may want to peek at the details of the upcoming Motorola Moto X. A recent leak suggests that there is more to what the Moto X may be bringing for loyalists.
Fans may recollect that the leaked image of the Motorola smartphone featured 16 pins on the rear panel. According to Tech Radar, the pins could well be for “swappable backplates.” And a report posted on VentureBeat revealed that the Moto X could be going the LG G5 way and giving loyalists customizable options. Reportedly, the Moto X is expected to arrive with not one or two, but six modular attachments, dubbed as “Amps.” The modules are expected to include battery pack, stereo speaker as well as “camera grip with optical zoom lens.”
What’s also interesting is that the speculations hint at Lenovo launching two variants of the Moto X line called: Vector Thin and Vertex. The former will be the higher-end options while the Vertex would be a more budget friendly device. For fans who were earlier sceptical about the massive changes being brought about to the Moto X series, may find some relief in the prediction that a pocket-friendly option may well be included in the lineup.
Both devices will sport a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with Vertex possessing a 1080p display. On the other hand, the Vector Thin will possess a 1440p one. Other rumoured specs on the Vector Thin include a Snapdragon 820 chipset with 3 or 4GB RAM, 16MP primary camera and 32GB storage. The smartphone is also said to come embedded with a 2,600mAh battery. The Vertex, on the other hand, will feature a 13MP camera and be available in 16GB and 32GB options where the former device will have 2GB RAM and the latter will feature 3GB RAM.
