Google bought Motorola back in 2011 and since then we've been waiting for them to launch a smartphone together. Well now it looks like that time might have come because Motorola are rumoured to be producing a smartphone that will launch the Android Key Lime Pie platform.
The smartphone, codenamed the Motorola X Phone , is expected to be unveiled in May. In recent times Google have always launched the new version of Android on their Nexus range, but it looks like this time they'll use the Motorola brand.
So what do we know about the Motorola X Phone ?
Well, firstly the Motorola X Phone is expected to have a 5 inch touch-screen which will have a bezel-less design. The edge-to-edge display will enable the device to have smaller physical dimensions than Samsung's Galaxy S3, while at the same time having a larger display.
Apparently, the X in the name of the smartphone relates to the fact than in the US it'll be available across multiple networks in the US. Motorola devices are normally exclusive to Verizon in the US, but this revelation makes us wonder whether the device will be branded differently in the UK.
The only other information we have about the smartphone at the current time is that it'll run on Android Key Lime Pie. We previously heard that Google would unveil the latest version of Android in May, so this latest leak backs up that information.
Sadly, at the current time very little is known about the operating system. However, as soon as the folks at 3G hear anything more about the platform or the Motorola X Phone we'll let you know.
