Moto X launch hinted at by new ad

The day isn’t far when we get to see the first smartphone from Google-owned Motorola, the Moto X phone. A new ad has made its way to the Internet, which not only showcases some of the features of the phone but also a reveals that the smartphone will hit Canada in August. It's safe to say that the smartphone will be available in a number of other markets in the same time-frame, but there is no information on an India launch date for the smartphone.

The ad comes from Canadian carrier Rogers Wireless and showcases features of the smartphone. Some of the new features of the smartphone showcased in the video are as follows. The smartphone will have an always-on microphone so you can talk to your phone whenever you like without touching it and it will respond to you.

Rather than an LED light blinking in different colours to showcase notifications, as it does on the Nexus, the Moto X phone will showcase the notifications with the clock on the display so you know exactly what type of notification it is. You can also launch the camera by simply twisting your wrist twice.

First there was the physical shutter button that was removed from smartphones and now the onscreen button too is living its last days. On the Moto X phone, you can click a picture by simply tapping on the display. If you want to take multiple consecutive shots, you can do so by long pressing on the display. No onscreen shutter button.

The Moto X phone will be available in two colours, Black and white. The video showcases a black coloured smartphone and over the weekend we have seen Eric Schmidt using the white version of the smartphone at the Allen & Co conference in Sun Valley.

The specifications of the smartphone are still a mystery but in an ad released on July 4 claim that the smartphone will be customizable by the user. Personalization is one thing that is showcased in this video, which is to say that the smartphone will recognize your voice. We hope the customization goes beyond software and has something to do with the hardware of the Moto X.
