We’ve extensively been covered all Moto X rumors here, just last week we picked up one that claimed Rogers would release the new Motorola smartphone in August. Today a video has surfaced online, which actually is the tech demo of the Moto X on Rogers. The video hasn’t been posted on the carrier’s official YouTube account, so its definitely a leak that going to get someone in trouble at the Canadian carrier. It actually provides a glimpse of some of the unique features that this device will have, including but not limited to always-on voice commands and camera gestures.
Always-on voice commands will enable users to interact with the device without even having to touch it. The video shows Moto X being queried for Toronto’s forecast as it lays on the table, the user just says “OK Google Now,” and then follows up with her query. There’s also a feature called Active Updates, which is a unique notification system that quietly delivers information on the screen instead of a blinking LED. The video also shows how easy it will be to launch the camera, by simply holding the device and twisting wrist twice, the user is able to bring up the camera.
It is also said that Moto X will be launching on Rogers this August and that it will be available in both black and white colors. No mention has been made of the customization options we’ve been hearing about. This video is a must watch if you’re the least bit interested in Motorola’s upcoming smartphone. Its actually the first smartphone to come from this company after it was bought by Google, which is probably the reason why Google’s Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt has been parading around with his own Moto X.
