Just yesterday, Motorola revealed its print advertisements for its upcoming Moto X phone, which showcased not the hardware itself but the ability to customize the handset in undisclosed ways. A new report from ABC News uncovers what kind of customization will be available when the Google backed Moto X launches.
“Tomorrow you’ll eat burgers, watch firework and celebrate the freedom to be whoever you want to be. It’s with the same spirit that we’re bringing you something new. The first smartphone that you can design yourself… Imagine what will be possible when you have the world’s best design, engineering and manufacturing talent located here in the USA.” – Moto X print ad
According to ABC News sources, the Moto X will allow customers to select a number of colors for both the trim of the phone as well as the back cover. Users will also be able to upload a photo to the customization website to be used as a wallpaper, as well as engraving options to add text or a name to the back of the device.
The Moto X, which is tipped as a mid-range device, will run on Android 4.2.2 and is said to be available with multiple storage options. While we have heard that the Moto X will not carry the Droid branding, Verizon is one of the major U.S. carriers to be testing the device.
While the aesthetic changes are clearly innovative, the true genius is packed in the sensors included in the device. Users will reportedly be able to snap a picture without pushing the camera button, snapping a picture with the flick of the wrist. The Moto X will also detect when a user is driving, and will offer advanced voice features powered by Google’s advanced voice capabilities.
While have no concrete release date for the Moto X, it could be coming soon since carriers are currently testing the device and the ad campaign has kicked off. Previous rumors have pointed to a release date of August or later.
