This just in. LOL seriously.
Our sources at Motorola have dropped another bombshell on us. Moto plans to drop 8 devices on us between now and Christmas.
For you at home keeping score.
We have coming
Moto X Play
And the Shammu Nexus (EDIT Shamu my error, Thanks to source for the correction) (Source also just tells me that Shamu may have the name changed in Motorola for trademark issues) (Interesting more as this develops)
Verizon getting the lion share of these devices….. Or are they? Our sources state that just like AT&T got a RAZR like device a couple years back, We could see the Droid and the Droid Turbo on AT&T under a different banner.
Also One of these DROID devices is also tied to a Star Wars promotion according to the source.
And finally in another twist, According to the source, The X Play could be a Mini Moto S. Or If X+1 sales fail or if other things happen (cant yet speak on this) Then the 5.9 Moto S could get canned and the X Play would become the Moto S.
I know its all confusing to me as well. But we appreciate the info as always.
What do you think of Motorola dropping all these devices? Let us know in the comments.
Update***** Take down order has just been issued for the phone. All that’s left is on instagram. This was too close for Moto and I can say ive NEVER seen a company move this fast to remove a video. Pics and short clips on our instagram. Will keep everyone posted as to whether we will be able re upload.*****
The upcoming moto device we leaked last week will come with a “Lenovo Theme Store” And customizable softkeys as we were able to see in our short hands on time.
The theme store was not functional but strangely you could pull themes from Nova launcher “in some cases” and they would install.
Another new feature in the moto software is customizable softkeys.
This device which we are told is called “Orion will not go into production” It is merely a base test model on which both the new droid and droid maxx (no more ultra name will be built on, All three devices will share the same camera, screen, processor etc, With only battery size separating them and design in the moto x+1.
We also learn the droid and droid maxx make a return to kevlar in their material and our source claims that while NONE of these devices will have a flash, They will have a unique sensor that will allow it to take the best low light photos on any phone. The sensor looks almost like a smaller lens that is black similar to the G3 laser sensor.
Stay tuned as we will be getting hands on time with the 4 inch droid mini this week.
