For much better and cheaper, motorola 4.6 inch need to contained MediaTek MT6795 chip
no need for QHD, 720p or 1080p is enough for me..
QHD means more battery for apps and gaming..
with more ram and storage..
This have to be great, but need to contained IPS-Neo & Quantum screen and LPDDR4 ram !!!!!
Last time o check Motorola Current Flagships the Droid Turbo & Nexus 6 both already have QHD SCREENS. So don't kno why they wld say these two would be the first Motos to include them. Need to adjust article

Those are both 5 inch screen or greater handsets. A mini should be less than 5 inches. A 5 inch screen is not a mini.

Way to go Moto on the mini. Except Sony, no other major manufacturer makes a top tier mini. Not Samsung, LG, HTC, none of them. All of their minis are 2nd and 3rd tier. Great way to grab some market share. Find a niche and fill it. I have been waiting for this for quite some time. Hopefully, it will have a half way decent camera and battery life, but even if it doesn't, I will probably get it anyway. Not many options in this market segment.
Anonymous, 27 May 2015That's Motorola.....the lost legend. I m not exaggerating and many would agree with me that wh... more100% agree with you. This 4.6 screen Moto would definitely a break-through in this era of large uncomfortable phones. The ideal size for a "phone" is between 125 to 135mm with 4.5 to 4.7 screen. Pocket friendly especially for jeans and chino pockets.
With SD 810 and other brilliant hardware, I would eagerly wait for this ideal phone. After reading this I m now feeling low for my IPhone 6. Lol.
And there is a misinformation in this news, Moto Turbo/Maxx have a QHD display not 1080p.
Brazil gets all Motorola models, and it is assembled locally. And Moto is one of the most popular brands around here, you see Moto E, G and X everywhere. When Moto Maxx came out, we were the first country where it was released!
Moto_Fan, 27 May 2015Why Motorola is USA exclusive?.Why rest of world can not get Motorola devices ?.Even last year... moreMotorola is for Brazil too
Same time, even faster than USA
But it is the exception. All other smartphones takes almos 2 months to get here
Moto_Fan, 27 May 2015Why Motorola is USA exclusive?.Why rest of world can not get Motorola devices ?.Even last year... moreBecause no one outside US is buying moto. We buy Asian-made/assembled smartphones and that includes "designed in California, assembled in China" smartphones.
In 6 months time after these are released. Price cuts/drops are sure coming because no one is buying moto anymore.
MotoX 2015 and Droid mini. There are no other handsets that match the criteria but those. The MotoX is rumored with the 808 and the 810 will be improved by the time the mini droid is released.
Cool to see QHD going mainstream as a normal display resolution. Pretty soon we will have 4-5k handset displays, while our Tvs will explode to 10k Oled screens.
Literally windows into other countries.
Swordylove, 27 May 2015Ahhh 600+ ppi... Orgasm for the specs fetishists.It's DPI not PPI, They're not the same!
I dunno what to say, but I like 4.6" inch screens, 5"+ is way too big for my taste.
Just my $0.01 (Used to be $0.02, but due to the recession we've had to make cutbacks.)
Guys ... you seem to be missing out some info ... last years Turbo Droid was a 1440 ppi, in fact it was few of the first (I guess just next to LG G3) handset to have that kind of density.
