We have been hearing about a new Motorola X smartphone for a long time now that goes by the name Motorola Moto X+1. Motorola has finally announced their next flagship device and it’s known as the new Moto X 2014. The smartphone has been improved a lot in terms of both specs and features.

The new Moto X 2014 now comes with a 5.2 inch display that supports a resolution of 1920 x 1080. The new Moto X 2014 has thinner bezels and that is how Motorola was able to fit in a bigger screen just like LG and Samsung did. The smartphone also comes with a modified version of Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor that will be clocked at 2.5GHz, 2 GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 13MP camera on its back while a 2MP camera at its front and to power it all a 2300mAh battery. The new Moto X will also be running stock Android Kitkat 4.4.4 out of the box though the Motorola logo on the back of the smartphone is not a button anymore.

The new Moto X 2014 also comes with all the features that the old Moto X had but does rename them like the Active Display that has been renamed to Moto Display which lights up selected pixels on the screen and shows up notifications, which helps in saving battery as the users won’t have to turn on the screen again and again. The phone also uses an IR sensor for gesture controls and users can just wave their hands to cancel a call or an alarm. According to Motorola their IR sensor is better than other sensors used on smartphones as it is 4 times faster.

Touchless controls are also there but is now renamed to Moto Voice which also brings some customizations for example users won’t have to say ‘’OK Google’’ every time to bring up Google assist because they can change it to whatever they like.

The frame of the smartphone is made out of metal and users will also have the option to change the back cover just like on the old Moto X.
