Mystery Motorola phone turns up in hands-on video review

Android, Mobile phones, Tech Digest news

Here’s an interesting little find – Vietnamese website Tinh Te, who seem in possession of a near-endless supply of mobile phone leaks, have just posted a hands on review of a mystery Motorola phone, which you can see in the video above.

Packing in a 4.65-inch 720p screen, it’s running off a Snapdragon S4 processor and Adreno 320 GPU, with 2GB of RAM and a 2200 mAh battery.

Running Android Jelly Bean, it’s curved edges and touch-only buttons make it look reminiscent of the LG Nexus 4, with a matte finish on the rear and a gloss finish up front.

However, the video also briefly shows off an unusual feature of the screen. At certain moments, the reflection and lighting of the video appear to show the screen to have two vertical ridges across the display. Is this a feature of the screen, a defect in the handset that Tinh Te have perhaps dubiously acquired, or simply a reflective trick of the camera? We’re not sure.

Is this the Google/ Motorola X Phone? We’d say that’s unlikely. By all accounts, the X Phone is the next flagship Android device, and the mid-range specs on show here don’t necessarily line up with that. Just yesterday we saw what were claimed to be leaked specs of the rumoured X Phone, which seemed far more impressive with its Key Lime Pie version of Android, Full HD 1080p screen, a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 4i processor, a 16MP rear camera and a 5MP one handling eye-tracking up front.
