Motorola’s 6.3in Xplay phablet: don’t you forget about me

Motorola’s 6.3in Xplay phablet: don’t you forget about meIt’s been almost six months since Martin wrote about the 6.3in Motorola Xplay phablet, shortly after the launch of the Moto X, but before the wallet-friendly Moto G became a reality.

A lot has changed since then, but we’re hearing that the Motorola Xplay is still very much in the proverbial pipeline.

In case you’ve been off-planet for a few months, Motorola was recently sold by Google to Chinese manufacturer Lenovo.

Shortly thereafter we were promised that Motorola’s immediate plans would remain unchanged, and according to Weibo via G 4 Games, that’s very much the case with the rumoured Xplay phablet.

Motorola Xplay specs remain a mystery at this stage (other than the fact that it’ll be a phablet-style device); here we’re talking about a release window.

Specifically, according to some dude who previously leaked accurate juice pertaining to the Moto X and Moto G, the Motorola Xplay will arrive in Q3 2014, or “between July and September” if you prefer.

There’s no specific mention of the “Xplay” name this time around, and obviously we’re still several months from commercial release, so that’s very much up in the air. Ditto the 6.3in display size; could be a tad smaller (or indeed bigger).

Presumably the coming months will see all sorts of Motorola Xplay benchmarks and spec sheets and leaked press shots and what have you. You know the drill.

I give this a nod - simply because the Moto G turned out to be a nice device even though it runs Android :p

I bet it'll end up being Moto X or above priced, though. I have a horrid feeling that the Moto G was a one off hit, which will never be repeated. Even if Motorola make an updated version of it, they'll be too stupid to realise that the only reason the original was so popular was the price, they'll just see the promising sales figures and take the opportunity to raise the price.
