Moto X: pure Android and always-on mode rumoured

Moto X: pure Android and always-on mode rumoured

Motorola’s forthcoming Moto X has already been trailed in a series of high-profile newspaper ads in the US.

However, those spots were seriously light on details, aside from the fact that the handset would be US made and US assembled.

But now a string of new info has come to light thanks to Android and Me’s Taylor Wimberly. Taking to his Google+ page to share details, Wimberly said sources had told him the Moto X would have a ‘pure Android’ experience.

Using stock Android makes sense seeing as Motorola is owned by Google. The Big G is looking to push stock Android over skinned versions, as seen with so-called Google Editions of the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4.

More interestingly (or worryingly depending on your point of view), Motorola is also plotting an always-on function for the Moto X. This would likely entail audio and noise sensors and speech recognition tech being on at all times, raising privacy concerns.

Wimberly suggests that the Moto X will be revealed in August. Expect to hear plenty more gossip about it in the weeks ahead of its release.
