Another day, another few leaks about what to expect from the Motorola Moto X. This time around, we’re getting more info on what to expect from the hardware and build quality of the device. This info comes again from Taylor Wimberly who has already put out info claiming that the Moto X would have options to have wood, metal, or ceramic backplates. Mr. Wimberly is very confident with his info, but right now, he is still a source of rumor and not fact.
This time around, Mr. Wimberly is saying that the Moto X will be built with something called Moto Magic Glass, which is a single layer of Gorilla Glass that has been molded to a special polymer. This, combined with zero-gap construction, will make the device feel as though the display is a continuous surface that wraps around the entire front and edges of the phone, and make the back of the device feel smooth and seamless.
Additionally, the Moto X allegedly is made with a laminated aluminum structure, which makes for a lightweight, but very strong design. And, it may feature 5 antennas: 2G/3G main, GPS, Bluetooth/Wi-Fi, and Dual LTE MIMO Smart Antennas which would offer faster LTE and better reception.
As usual, it all sounds great, but we’ll have to wait and see how much is accurate when the official word comes next week.
