It seems that Motorola is working on a more powerful, more compact version of its current flagship, the Moto X Style. Codenamed Motorola Bounce, the new phone is reportedly set for a December unveiling.
It will have a 5.43" QHD screen (X Style is 5.7" QHD, X Play is 5.5" 1080p). It will also be powered by a Snapdragon 810 chipset (Style and Play are 808 and 615 respectively) that will be paired to 3GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of built-in storage.
The Motorola Bounce will allegedly come with Moto's 21MP camera (presumably with 2160p video) and a 5MP selfie camera. The whole thing is powered by a bigger battery, 3,760mAh (that's 760mAh more than the X Style).
A "shatterproof" label suggests a MIL-STD rating (IP ratings only measure dust and water resistance).
Maybe they're measuring for the sake of precision and not some rounded off blah blah
though neither 5.96 or 5.43 line up in Metric particularly well, either, must be down to the odd ratio. I wonder what the non-diagonal dimensions of the screen are?
Motorola is announcing one phone after another but no sign of their availability. This is good marketing, keep people drooling, dangling some new announcement baits. No moto phones in sight.
