Motorola X-Phone now rumored as Motorola NXT as new details emerge

The rumored Motorola X-Phone may feature a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 4i processor, reports AndroidWorld. New details surfacing this morning indicate the handset’s more proper name could be the Motorola NXT and that the device will be very slim indeed.

Reportedly, the Motorola NTX will include a 4.7-inch Full HD 1080p display, a 16-megapixel (seriously?) rear camera, and 5-megapixel (seriously?) front-facing camera. Dimensions are said to be 131.2 x 66.7 x 7.9 mm or thinner than the Droid Razr HD.


The finer details indicate that the front-facing camera will pull double duty as a light sensor and utilize eye tracking for scrolling in emails and websites. Expected to run Android v. K(ey Lime Pie), the Motorola NXT is shaping up to be quite a remarkable device, if only on paper.

Keep in mind that that none of these specs have been confirmed and the device is still not even officially recognized by anyone at Google. With that said, there’s plenty of evidence to support that such an animal exists that it should be a heck of an experience.

Rumored X Phone/Motorola NXT specs

  • Android 5.0 / v. K(ey Lime Pie)
  • 4.7-inch Full HD 1080p display
  • NVIDIA Tegra 4i processor
  • 16-megapixel rear camera
  • 5-megapixel camera
  • Dimensions: 131.2 x 66.7 x 7.9 mm
  • Kevlar protection
  • Front-facing camera doubles as light sensor
  • Eye tracking for scrolling on website and in emails

Don’t get too caught up in that image above, either. That’s merely a mockup and not indicative of the actual device.

    NEVER buying a Motorola device ever again. Totally got burned with the Bionic, the worst phone I have ever owned. What a piece of garbage.

    • Dominic Powell

      buying old motorola and new motorola will be a very different proposition.

    • Andy_in_Indy

      If the Bionic had an unlockable boot loader so that the community could have fixed its problems, then it would have been worthwhile. Still, I hate the thought of giving up my lapdock.

    The specs sound beastly, but I still don’t want the Motorola logo on the front of the device. Maybe I don’t understand why it happens, but it just seems like brazen arrogance that the manufacturer (or carrier for that matter) thinks we want to see the logo on the front of the device every time we look at it.

    • Matthew Miranda

      agree , but pretty sure they wont in the front anymore

    I think with Google being the Mommy of Motorola you can expect better device or unlocked boot loader etc. It sounds good but I am hoping it’s a 5 inch screen instead of the 4.7 just to differentiate it from Nexus 4. I am really hoping for the Razr Maxx battery and the 16 MP camera is an HD or something very nice instead of HTC Titan 16 MP crap. I personally don’t care about the 5 MP front camera but I am sure some folks will enjoy the for Skype.

    I am sticking with Sony. The water proofing is a big deal. Plus I love Sony’s fingers in all the different technology industries which cross over.

    • andre tapiau

      Samsung and ASUS are involved in just as much if not more industries.
