Disclaimer: This is, in all likelihood, just wishful thinking on my part.

With the upcoming announcement of the Moto G, a more budget friendly Moto device, Motorola appears to be taking on Samsung's staged rollout approach for devices. 

Wisely, spreading out your device releases means more customers available to buy your devices as contracts expire. Nov/Dec is also a great time to drop a budget-friendly device for all those holiday shoppers.

This has gotten me thinking (not always a good thing).

The Moto X, while very innovative and exciting, is still considered a mid-range device. Released in August.

The Moto G, an arguably mid-to-low end device, is presumably releasing EOM November.

Do you see where I'm going with this?

Everyone knows the "king of the hill" in Android is Samsung, and Motorola/Google would like nothing better than to take marketshare away from the King. 

This is all just rampant speculation, but what if Motorola has a decidedly high end Moto X variant planned for this Spring, dropping right before Sammy's GS5?

Possibly a 5", 1080p, X10 (Quad processor, Quad graphics, dual co-processor) and a 3500 Mah battery. A Moto X Maxx for lack of a better name.

 

I drool at the thought.

 

The way I look at it, Verizon will be discounting the Droid lineup around that time to reduce inventories, and would like nothing more than to have an all-new phone they can charge $299 for. The other carriers would also love to have a 48 hour battery model in their lineup. This also creates a complete phone lineup for Motorola, sans a tablet (which I believe is also coming)

 

As usual, I'm probably way off base and full of sh*t, but I can dream can't I?

What do you think?

I'd say it's feasible.. Before the Moto X was released it was rumored that the X phone wouldn't be a phone but a line of phones.. So with the mid X and low G, a high end device should be on the radar.. just my opinion.

I think you're spot on.  It's decent planning, and gives options to folks who otherwise are "out of the market."

I'd love a Moto X MAXX.  Love love love.

I went into this thread, and the posts were in complete gibberish. So was my post when I submitted it. I refresh the page and it's back to normal. lol

If so, I don't think a simple refresh would have broken through their efforts.
