Motorola launched Moto X 2nd Gen today after a long wait. The company has upgraded the device pretty much. Let's check out the specs of the device
Getting to the hardware part there are pretty much interesting things the company has upgraded. First of all the side rim of the device is made of metal which gives the phone a premium feel. Screen is now 5 inches full HD AMOLED display. The device is also thinner from the older version.
Coming to the front look the device two significant front facing speakers just like the Htc One (M8). The speakers are slightly just above the surface which does not scratch the ear. Also, there is also one merit of this that if your device is kept the front face down then screen is protected from scratches. The two dots at the bottom of the device are IR sensors for gestures, like you can silent your device by just waving your hand above the mobile phone.
Now coming towards the back there is a 13MP camera surrounded by the ring flash but, here the ring actually does not illuminates. The two leds flashlights are installed inside the ring. Camera can record 4k UHD, 1080p and regular videos. Moto X comes in various of back covers we can order as we like.
On the sides the power button and the volume rockers are on the right side and the power button has a texture on it to distinguish between volume rockers and the power button.
Unluckily the phone has no external sd card slot. It comes only in two variants 16 gigs and 32 gigs
Talking about the software part the device comes with the android 4.4.4 kikat upgradable to Android L. the phone comes with the stock android which Google releases it means no change in the OS and also fast update of the device because Motorola itself has not to do and sort of "editing" in the OS.
The touchless display is now even more interesting now it's known as moto voice. We need not to even touch the device to access the voice control. Earlier user had to say the "Okay Google Now" to access the voice control now you can set your own keyphrase like " You there kit" , " Help me kit".
It comes with built in third party apps such as Facebook , Twitter, Youtube and WhatsApp. But the company says that they will be coming with more third party apps in the device.
