Mysterious Motorola handset caught on camera with Android L on board (VIDEO)
A new Motorola smartphone seemingly running Google's latest Android 5.0 L software has leaked online in a couple of intriguing videos.
This purported smartphone could launch as the next Motorola Droid smartphone, but nothing is confirmed at this point.
The newly-leaked videos come from TK Tech News, which claims to have received it from a tipster. The handset features in the videos "is a lot bigger than the Moto X," and is also larger than the current Google Nexus 5 smartphone. It remains unclear at this point just what branding this new device will sport, but it's possible that it will hit the market either as a new Motorola Droid device for Verizon Wireless, or a larger version of the upcoming Moto X+1.
For its part, the Moto X+1 is expected to sport a 5.2-inch display, but the device caught on camera appears to be larger. The display on this handset could measure around 5.5 inches.
Other rumored specs of the Moto X+1 include a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor paired with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage capacity, and microSD card support for additional memory of up to 128GB. The upcoming smartphone will reportedly feature a 12-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front shooter, and a 2,900 mAh battery to keep things up and running.
If the mysterious device starring in this new leak is a larger version of the Moto X+1, it should sport similar specifications aside from the bigger screen. The device in question also appears to be running Android L, but it could all turn out to be just a hoax. It's not impossible to get the Android L theme and change the boot animation to match Motorola's, so there's no guarantee that this is real. On the other hand, Motorola has likely been testing the Android L preview for quite some time now, so the possibility of this being a Motorola prototype for testing and debugging the new OS is not out of the question either.
The folks over at TK Tech News said they will be contacting the source soon and try to get a hands-on with the device, and will update with more information afterwards. In the meantime, check out the videos below but take everything with a grain of salt.
