The Moto X for Sprint will be receiving a software update in the next few days, which should bring with it some small fixes. The camera received an update which allows for better consistency of exposure, more realistic flash colouring, and improved low light front camera photos all to increase your cameras image quality. The Phone dialer has been updated with a new graphical layout and colors. Motorola Alert can now be downloaded for the device to send updates on your location to select contacts. Along with these more visible differences are a few stability and security fixes to solve minor issues that have been showing their heads recently.

Here’s another look at the Moto G2, specs confirmed as well

Moto_G2_Upgrades

The Moto G has been the hottest selling Motorola phone in history so we are expecting big things with the Moto G2. Speaking of big, it’s going to be bigger in the literal sense. Last year’s Moto G had a 4.5-inch display, but this years G2 will sport a full 5-inches with smaller bezels. It’s also going to get upgraded to 720p (1280 x 720).

The main camera is also getting an upgrade from 5 MP to 8 MP, and a microSD slot should be standard now. Probably the biggest surprise has to be front-facing stereo speakers, something that is never found on budget devices. Throw in a Snapdragon 400, 1 GB of RAM, and a removable back that can be customized, and you have a winner.

Motorola to release updated Skip as keychain fob

Motorola_Skip_Keychain_Fob_FCC_DocsRemember the Motorola Skip accessory that was released last year around the same time as the Moto X? It was a little accessory that allowed you to unlock your phone with ease. You would attach it to your belt and Motorola also offered Dots (stickers) to place in different parts of your house. It wasn’t a bad accessory, but it was limited in that it was only NFC and you had to place the phone right next to the Skip for it to work. As with all technology, Motorola is looking to improve Skip, and FCC documents just outed it.

Moto Luge product page leaks on Best Buy’s site, will be geared toward Verizon pre-paid customers

Moto Luge

We’ve seen multiple new DROID devices and now a stretchy Nexus X leak — but the Moto Luge? That’s new.

Apparently this device will be a Verizon exclusive, and will be targeted to prepaid customers — the service recently received 4G LTE support, so this adds to the carrier’s offering for those consumers.

Motorola XT1112 shows up in shipping manifest, possibly another “Shamu” contender

Motorola_Moto_E_Back_Camera_Motorola_Logo_02_TA

We’ve seen a ton of devices with different model numbers that could end up being a Motorola Nexus 6, and today you can add the Moto XT1112 to that growing list. The XT1112 showed up in Zauba’s database, which is an import/export system that tracks devices coming in and out of India. Interestingly, though, the description for that particular model is “SHAMU PHONES (PROTOTYPE) (FOR DEMO PURPOSE) MOTOROLA XT1112″ which could just mean that particular model is the version that’s going to be sold in India. Or, it could be something else entirely. At this point it’s anyone’s guess.

The latest trend for mobile devices at the end of 2014 seems to be incredible displays. After all, it is the one part of a device that is always being used. Now it seems that Motorola and Verizon will have an upcoming device that will please even the most demanding viewer. A CPU-Z identification test reveals that a Motorola device with the model number XT1254, and codenamed Quark, will have a 4.59-inch display with 2560×1440 resolution. This means that it has a whopping 640 pixels per inch.

Motorola’s next flagship could actually be called the Moto X One

motorola_moto_x_one_casting_email

On September 4, Motorola is going to introduce multiple new devices. While a new flagship device is certain to be present on that date, it may not be called the Moto X+1. An alleged casting call obtained by DroidForums shows that Motorola’s next flagship device will actually be called Moto X One. The casting call is looking for two female actors for roles involving the “X One” product. Interviews with potential actors are taking place today and filming will begin on September 3, one day before Motorola’s event.

We will have to wait just two more weeks to find out what exactly Motorola will name its next flagship device. If the company does indeed go with the Moto X One name, it will join HTC and Microsoft in labeling something as the One. Microsoft has an Xbox console with that name, but HTC is a direct competitor to Motorola that has the One series of devices.

Hello Moto X+1

Moto_X+1_leaked_Press_Renders_01

In 2 weeks we will see the Moto X-1 in real life, but this just might be the next best thing. Thanks to a little retirement gift from @evleaks, we have the press images of the wooden and leather versions of the phone.

The first thing you might have noticed is the Verizon logo signifying their version. Other than the logo, we don’t expect there to be any differences between the carrier versions. As far as hardware goes, the front of the device shows what could be front-facing stereo speakers. However, since the top one appears to be bigger, I am not convinced just yet. The power and volume rocker appears to be lower on the right side, probably because of the larger footprint.
