    5.7" screen with super thin side bezels. It's practically the same width as the 2014 X, but taller.

    No idea on the battery or proc. I highly doubt the battery is 3000+mah.

    If you're saying it, I'm believing it.

    Cool to see you again. If anyone doubts this man....don't. He's legit.

    So this new moto is going phablet territory? I'm hearing there's 3 new models with QHD screens coming. Any truth to that?

    The 5.7 number is one I heard before I actually saw it, and I don't carry a measuring tape with me ( ), but it really doesn't feel phablet sized. Maybe it's really 5.5? It's possible it just doesn't feel phablet sized because I always have a case on my 2014 X, and the 2015 X I held was naked. I sometimes use a Nexus 6 with a case, too, so maybe I'm just getting used to these huge phones. Lining them both up naked, the body of the 2015 is just barely wider than the 2014, but the screen is much taller.

    I haven't heard anything about multiple versions or anything like that (outside of online rumor mills), and of the devices I have seen, they have all been variants of the same device. A new customization option will be a rubber soft-touch back which has a really nice texture/feel to it.

    My hands quit growing a long time ago and my 2014 Moto X is at the limits of 1-handed usability for me.

    Hopefully I don't have to replace my newly acquired 2014 Moto X anytime soon, but I would like a better camera (if feels like more of an app issue than a hardware issue, but I haven't had time to dig into it) and support for inductive charging.

    I won't be in the market, but:

    I do not know why they would use a QHD screen at 5.2" There is no visual difference. It would be better to have the overkill graphics on a 1080p screen. That is why the 1st gen moto x is still the smoothest Android phone around(and the type of memory of course). Its sad that they will play the spec sheet game instead of focusing purely on experience.

    Other than that these specs look fantastic. The 4gb of ram would be amazing. One of the only complaints I have with the 2nd Gen is that it could keep apps in memory longer than it does (yes I know it is partly because of lollipop).

    QHD screens are just purely specs to impress users. I would of still bought my G3 if it had a 1080 screen. I'd rather have a 128GB or 256GB phone and a 1080 screen.

    I know we're about 5-10% of consumers, if that, but seems like most of us prefer the 1080p.

    I guess the Samsung/LG reps train the kids at the carrier stores and Best Buys that 1440p is better, and they regurgitate that to the consumers.

    To bad they don't educate them in the trade off, and they don't take the time to notice the difference. Hopefully the smaller battery, higher resolution trend will reverse itself sooner than later.

    Yep, I've seen this, too.

    Also have heard about a new faster turbo charger called the flash charger which will be usable with 2014 X, N6, etc.

    Does the flash charger use USB type C? I know that there has been talking USB type C speeding up charging times.

    good question. i always thought USB-C would make quick charge 2.0 obsolete.

    does anyone know if USB-C, even without the flash charge mentioned, is quicker than QC 2.0?

    The back on that is accurate. The dimple is built into that camera/flash section. The mystery material they reference is probably the soft-touch rubber waffle material.

    Pretty sure I've seen an AT&T 5.7" one so far. I also haven't seen any smaller versions. I doubt they will go exclusive with the X since the X is their cross-carrier device, whereas Verizon usually has all the droid phones.

    If it's 5.7 inches...it wont be my moto x 2013 replacement then. It's just too big. Hell, I worry about 5.2 because my kid's 2014 Moto G seems big to me.
