A few days ago I had a little birdie whisper in my ear about the Motorola Ghost, speculating that it would be the Nexus 4 refreshed.
The back panel is said to be a polycarbonate material which is interesting given Motorola’s penchant for kevlar backing on their devices. On top of these photos it is also being reported/rumoured today that it is scheduled for release in early July and pack 2GB of RAM and a 1080p screen.
So where does this leave us? It leaves us with the possibility of a LG Nexus 4 refresh at IO and a separate Motorola X phone. Does anyone else wonder why Motorola would be releasing a phone that is extremely similar to a phone that was released 6 months ago (Nexus 4) and practically identical in physical properties to one released even earlier (LG Optimus G)?
I am still sticking to my theory that the Ghost will actually be the refreshed Nexus 4 and the XFON is something different entirely. Personally I want the XFON to blow my socks off with its specs. I want it to wow me with its looks. I need it to stun me with its software. If the XFON is this Nexus 4/Optimus G copy I would be very disappointed. The first piece of the puzzle will hopefully be revealed at the Google IO keynote scheduled for 2am AEST 16th May.
Will you be disappointed if this is the X phone?
