When the Motorola Moto X has been unveiled and subsequently released, many smartphone enthusiasts started questioning whether or not this flagship device is worth the price. Clearly, the handset in question does not offer what the rest of the bunch deliver, and the on-paper specs are somewhat of a disappointment for a top-shelve smartphone. The biggest issues were that the handset does not offer a full HD display and that it delivers a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor – though it’s been heavily modified.
On the bright side, Motorola has previously mentioned that its intentions are to release a budget-friendly variant of the X as well, which will be aimed at the pre-paid segment. This mysterious gadget would allegedly offer more bang for the buck, and would put other devices in its segment to shame. If this concept ticks all your boxes, then you should be glad to know that fresh rumors concerning the DVX have just surfaced, along with a new pic starring one of the handset removable back-shells. Check out the details below.
Motorola DVX – Specs and Price Rumors
According to the latest rumors, the Motorola DVX won’t have super-narrow bezels (as opposed to the Moto X) will feature a 4.5 inch display that won’t be Super AMOLED, will feature a removable back cover that will come in a variety of colors, and it will also offer dual-SIM capabilities. More so, the handset is said to pack the X8 SoC, which is the same chipset that brings the Moto X to life. As a quick reminder, the X8 processing unit is comprised out of a modified S4 Pro chip running at 1.7 GHz, and two additional Motorola processors that handle all the sensors and contextual awareness, as well as voice recognition and language interpretation. It remains to be seen if Motorola DVX’s CPU will also be clocked at 1.7 GHz or if it will be down-clocked.
In other words, the Motorola DVX might end up being quite similar with the Moto X, at least in terms of sheer performance. What makes this an exciting bit of news is the rumored price at which the DVX will hit the shelves. According to the source, the gadget will set us back roughly 1200-1500 yuan, which translates into $200-250.
Even more exciting is the fact that this particular source has proven to be quite reliable. In the past, most Moto X (true) rumors and leaks have been delivered by this particular tipster. Evidently, a rumor will remain a rumor until official word comes out, but so far it seems that we have a pretty good lead. Any thoughts?
