Smart Antennas & Moto Magic Glass

 

New leaked info on Google's upcoming Moto X phone is making its rounds around the internet today as we get closer to the August 1st release date. 
 
The Moto X will feature Dual LTE MIMO Smart Antennas, which should deliver the best 4G LTE performance (faster data speeds and better reception). Most OEMs support 4G technologies on the same antenna as 2G/3G, but Moto will have 2 antennas dedicated to 4G LTE. There will be 5 antennas inside Moto X: 4G main, 4G diversity, 2G/3G main, GPS, and BT/WiFi.

The Moto X will also feature something called Moto Magic Glass. This is a single sheet of Gorilla Glass which is molded to a special polymer to make a continuous surface that wraps around the entire front and edges of the device. There is zero gap with the back as well as a laminated aluminum structure for a light weight and high strength design.

So, let me get this straight:

 

  • Groundbreaking construction principles
  • Groundbreaking antennas
  • Abysmal internals that catastrophically limits its shelf life

Hmmm...so it's an iPhone 3GS?

If those radios do what I think they're gonna do, we could be looking at one Moto X that works across all carriers LTE frequencies... meaning Verizon possibly wont be able to get their hands on this thing and slow up the updates if Google sells it through the Play Store. We don't need another repeat of the VZW GNex. :P

Pretty sure the Nexus 7 LTE does that, no?  Just sayin'.

 

Also, LOL @ Google slow-walking that whole no LTE thing.

Yes, I believe so. That's the first thought that popped into my head when Hugo Barra was speaking about the N7 and LTE.

I've been wondering about the tech specs in the new Droid phones compared to the suggested specs in the MOTOX.  Not sure what to make of this after reading the article in the above link.  If this info is correct will the Motox be running the same processors as the new Droids?

I think so, the Moto X Roundup has the chip reported as MSM8960DT, the same model chip thats being used in the new Droid phones dubbed the X8.. 4 cores going to the GPU and 2 cores going to the CPU. Its still only 2 cores for the CPU though... which as you read in that article is misleading saying a phone is 6 cores, when 4 cores going to the CPU is a big performance difference over only 2 cores going to the CPU. None the less, I'm still curious to see how the Moto X will perform with this so called octo-core X8 chip, if thats what it is.. we'll find out soon enough.

Agree completely but this may make some sense.  I have an Nvidia graphics card with it's own processor, fan, and 2 Gigs of ram  installed in my PC and the result is blazingly fast screen displays and refreshes on my 27.5 inch flat screen.  This doesn't make the Pc processing a lot faster and there is still wait time for web connections but the end result with these fast screens gives the feel of a pleasing fast device..at least for me.

 

Since the screen is the item we interact with the most on our phones the cores going to the GPU and the a smaller screen size may make for a great visual experience.
