Apart from the Galaxy S4, the Motorola X Phone is the second most rumored and followed device. The Motorola X Phone is touted to become the first flagship of the company since Google has started to look after the affairs of the company. The rumors have been flying thick and high, and today it reached a feverish pitch after the appearance of a benchmark which points out that the Motorola X Phone is to feature the Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie OS platform.
The past few months it has been a matter of debate that how will Motorola X Phone compete with the high end smartphones as it has been lined up after the release in quick succession of the several smarphones including the HTC One, Galaxy S4, iPhone 5 and the Sony Xperia.
The Motorola X Phone has been rumored to feature space age technology and has everything from high end software to customizable device. It also has more than 20 colors to choose from, one of the biggest color range to ever feature for a device.
Both Motorola and Google have indicated that the device will be released during the second half of 2013. Rumors indicate that the device will be probably unveiled after the Google I/O event in July or August.
The Benchmark information looks interesting but not very reliable since benchmarks can be faked and the results do not indicate the specs or the features of the final released product. However, in the same vein there is also a chance of the benchmarks as being accurate. The early benchmarks of the Galaxy S4 indicated that it will feature the Android 4.2 and also an eight core Exynos 5 processor which is only partly true.
The benchmark mentions the Android 5.0 which is still in its formative period and the name Key Lime Pie has been coined by analysts and has never been confirmed by Google. The device in the benchmark results has been named Google X and not X Phone or Motorola X Phone which is something strange. So the latest leaks have led to more questions than answers.
