With the iPhone 5S expected at WWDC in June (at the earliest - more on this later!) and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 touching down at IFA in August (probably), the next big smartphone launch was supposed to be the Motorola X-Phone.
However, the latest Motorola X-Phone rumour suggests the fantastically fancy flagship has been delayed, and ultimately won’t see the light of day till August or beyond. Aww man.
That’s the bad word according to sources of PhoneArena, though there’s no specific reason given for the Motorola X-Phone delay.
The Motorola X-Phone is – or was – widely tipped to be the star of the show at Google I/O next month, alongside the latest version of Android (Key Lime Pie), and presumably would’ve gone on sale within weeks as opposed to months.
But if we’re looking at August for the Motorola X-Phone release date, it wouldn’t make much sense to debut the handset a whole three months before it hits shelves. Unless they give a suitably vague “Q3” and hope people don’t settle for something else in the meantime. Who knows?
In any case, the Motorola X-Phone promises to rock your world with super-ruggedness, awesome battery life, an entirely reasonable 4.7in 1080p display, and Key Lime Pie.
