Mystery Moto phones with QHD screens currently being tested

We have some more Android leaks and Reddit is fast becoming a good source for information that usually turn out reliable and true. The latest subject is a mystery Motorola smartphone as shared by one redditor who said there are a number of devices being tested in Chicago complete with QHD screens and not 4K as earlier reported. These Moto phones are still unnamed but the model numbers are given: XT1578, XT1585, and XT192A.

What’s in the box?! It’s a Moto E!

Though we were expecting a Moto 360, what we got is potentially much better. Today, sitting on the porch waiting for me when I woke, was a box form Motorola. We all knew it was coming, but what was inside remained a bit of a mystery. A refresh to their smartwatch offering was what had our fingers crossed, but news over the past few days that a Moto E with LTE was possibly coming tossed a wrench into our desires. A new Moto E was exactly what we got, too.

We haven't heard much about the Moto E but a recent rumor gives us an idea that the 2nd-generation might be coming soon. It's another budget smartphone alright because the Moto E was popular in the cheap phone category with its sub-$150 price tag. And now that Motorola is owned by Lenovo, there's more reason for the mobile group to work harder than before.

Moto 360 smartwatch leaks sporting gold and brown bands

It's not uncommon for the folks that control when products go online on the Amazon website to hit the go button a bit early. The result is a glimpse at a product that is coming soon before the product is supposed to be unveiled. This happened today when a pair of Moto 360 smartwatches turned up on Amazon sporting new band colors and were pulled shortly thereafter.

Moto E spotted in new leaked image, could have front-facing speakers

The Moto E, a possibly lower-cost cousin to the already attractively priced Moto G, has allegedly been spotted. Via Motorola’s Facebook page in Mexico, some enterprising soul caught a pic of what could be the new handset next to a Moto G. A bit more squat and a lot more interesting, the tiny “E” might make a big splash.

Moto X successor possibly spotted on benchmark site

A new Motorola device, presumably the successor to the Moto X, was spotted in benchmark testing. Performance marks aren’t the juicy bits we’re after, here — the hardware specs are. What we find is everything we wished the Moto X was on launch, but it could be a different device altogether.  

Motorola adds “Powered by Android” with latest boot services update

As we've mentioned in the past, Motorola is able to push frequent updates given they have released many of the core service apps in the Play Store. One of those happens to be the Motorola Boot Services app, and as Motorola has done before -- they are having a bit of fun with this latest update. Those with a Moto X or Moto G will want to make sure this update has been installed and then reboot their device.

Motorola tipped to have launched the “Test Drive” program

Software testing on Android devices is common practice these days. Motorola is amongst the names that standout due to the soak tests we often hear about. They recently rolled through some of these getting the Moto X running the latest and greatest. Sometimes the soak tests run over a week, and sometimes they go a bit longer.
