Motorola currently has a number of phones on the market – Moto X, Moto G, Moto E, and a whole line of DROID phones. Can you tell me how many have a 1080p display? The answer is zero. So why is it that Punit Soni, the company’s VP of product management, is posting screenshots that weigh in with a 1080p resolution? Your guess is as good as mine.
The screenshots comes to us in a response that Soni posted about the Moto G displaying current network names in the statusbar. He shows a shot of a box that can be checked to toggle that option on or off in a new update to Android 4.4.3 for the phone. But the thing is, the screenshot couldn’t have been taken from the Moto G. The Moto G only has a 720p display. So in other words, he is showing the carrier name status bar option check box from a phone that we have yet to see or has not been made official by Motorola.
Is it the Moto X+1? Maybe. Current rumors suggest that the next Moto X will be updated with a 1080p display that could be 5 inches or bigger. It may even look like this. We know that a new Moto X is supposed to arrive this summer, so you would hope that their top execs are already well into testing these devices in the wild. It could be that Punit just gave us our first real evidence of its existence.
Thanks, Punit, the hypebeasting is back in full force.
