An image of a battery cover supposedly meant for a Motorola smartphone has surfaced on the Facebook account for HellomotoHK. The cover is made out of a kevlar-like material or has been designed to give that appearance and is reminiscent of some recent Motorola Droid device covers.

The cover includes several access holes on the back with two large ones seemingly configured in a manner similar to the HTC One (M8) duo camera. According to HellomotoHK, the cover may be meant for the Motorola Moto X+1 or a Google Play Edition version of the same device. It is also possible it may be intended for an updated version of a Motorola Droid device for 2014.

Motorola_Smartphone_Unknown_01

We know that Motorola is readying the Moto X+1, but let’s not forget the DROIDs. We can only assume that new DROIDs will be announced around the same time, just like last year. TK Tech News has already leaked the Moto X+1, but they were given images of another device, but all we know is that it probably isn’t the Moto X+1. What we do know is the display is larger than the Moto X, but it’s our understanding that the Moto X+1 will have a larger display as well, at 5.2-inches. They do compare this device to the Nexus 5, and does appear bigger.

Admit it. You’ve looked at a buddy’s Android phone and thought, “Damn, that wallpaper is nice.”

You weren’t sure how to get the wallpaper for your own phone — it’s not like wallpapers have highly accessible names that you can just “search.”

Or can you? A new arrival in the Play Store allows you to do just that.

DroidPack, app app created by XDA Forum Member donniemceduns, allows you to select between the stock wallpapers from various OEMs, Android versions, ROMs and even other operating systems (yes, this means iOS). The collection is completely categorized and lets you download the wallpapers straight from the app.

It’s a nice addition to the Play Store — go check it out for yourself! Hit the break for the link to the app in the Play Store as well as a gallery of screen shots.

Owners of a DROID Ultra, MAXX, and Mini on Verizon no longer have a reason to be discouraged about the software. The latest version of Android, 4.4.3, is coming! David Schuster, part of Motorola’s Software Product Management team, says that some issues with Android 4.4.2 rollout led to a delay and when it was resolved, the company opted to just wait for the next version (which they new was on its way).

So now the company is focused on Android 4.4.3 and plans on pushing it out to the DROID line of 2013 as soon as possible. With how quick other Motorola devices are being updated to Android 4.4.3, do not expect to be waiting very long.

moto_x+1_leak_02

A couple of days ago, an image of a Motorola phone with a 5-inch+ display leaked online, but it really wasn’t all that clear. Why is it that the first leaked image(s) of a phone end up being that way? Anyways, we have another image for you, this time much clearer.

This device is most likely the Moto X+1, which has already been unofficially confirmed by Motorola. The leaker says that it will sport a 5.2-inch (1080p) display, but didn’t divulge anything else.

Motorola_XT912A_GFXBench_01

We know Motorola is readying the next generation Moto X, dubbed the Moto X+1, but they are also readying new DROIDs for Verizon Wireless. A new device with the model number of XT912A showed up in GFXBench that is most likely one of these phones.

The specs of the said device include a 5.2-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor (presumably a new version of Moto’s Mobile Computing System), 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 12MP rear camera, and 2MP front-facing camera. It’s also running Android 4.4.3, which isn’t even out yet.

Next Motorola DROID refresh is on track for Q4

DROID_Ultra_Back_Camera_Lens_DROID_Logo

Motorola has been launching new DROID phones every year since 2009. This year is no exception, especially since they signed that exclusive agreement to continue to make DROIDs for Verizon Wireless.

This year’s model(s) will hit around the 4th quarter and will sport a larger screen ratio, meaning less bezel. The latest DROIDs have sported Kevlar, and it looks likes Motorola will continue that trend. However, they will update it with supposed next-gen materials.

Droid Zap updated to work on all Android devices running 4.0 and higher

Droid Zap

Motorola’s picture and video sharing application originally only supported the company’s recent line of DROID-branded devices, and now a recent update changes availability options.

The update makes the application available to all Android devices running 4.0 and higher, as well as a newer user interface which looks less “Droid-looking.”

The app hasn’t really taken off as Motorola probably thought it would when it was released, but this is definitely a step towards making it more popular in the Android realm.
