While Google and Motorola's rumored X Phone remains a mystery, it is already making waves by impressing Australian wireless carriers.
Hugh Bradlow, the chief technology officer for Australian carrier Telstra, is very enthusiastic about the new smartphone.
Reportedly Bradlow told senior mobile staff at the firm that X Phone is a "real breakthrough, a game changer that will put pressure on Samsung and Apple."
An anonymous Motorola source added while speaking to Smarthouse, "Google has been working on this device for a long time. It has software features and capabilities that are not available on a Samsung Galaxy smartphone or Apple iPhone. The software is really powerful and it pulls together Google services like no other manufacturer has done in the past."
X marks the spot
Concrete details are still scarce about the much-mentioned X Phone, which appears to be the handset's official codename thanks to a LinkedIn job listing.
The X Phone's specs are said to include a debut for the Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie OS, along with a virtually bezel-less edge-to-edge 5-inch display.
Rumors have also hinted at a new Nexus-like UI for the X Phone, which is said to bring new features to rival Samsung's S-Beam, S-Voice, and other UI enhancements.
With the Google I/O conference coming up in May, the event could make a fitting unveiling for the mysterious X Phone. Motorola has been rather quiet since its buyout by Google in 2011, so TechRadar will keep a keen eye out for any developments on the firm's Google debut.
