The next Moto X to bring a 16MP OIS camera
Over the years Motorola's flagship Moto X has proven to be quite popular, if not always very well selling. Two devices, bearing the name have already proven their worth and the rumor mill has been buzzing with hints of a third one well underway. A few days ago, some alleged specs for the device surfaced and today another source claims to have more info on the smartphone's camera.
The phone's 16MP sensor might just be equipped with OIS. This hardly comes as a surprise, considering most current flagship devices, like the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the LG G4 take advantage of such technology for improved camera stability. Furthermore, this is not a new thing for Motorola either. The current Nexus 6 handset, doe, in fact, have optical image stabilization, so, including it in the Moto X (3rd Gen) should build on that experience.
As for the rest of the device's specs, we currently believe that it is going to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 SoC, just like the one in the LG G4. It is yet to prove itself in real life performance, but it does promise a lot of number-crunching power in a heat-efficient package. The rest of the specs sheet includes 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of onboard storage. The phone should be fitted with a 5.2-icnh QHD AMOLED panel, perhaps borrowed from the Motorola Droid Turbo.
Other hardware includes a 5MP front camera and front-facing speakers and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out-of-the-box, all powered by a 3,280 mAh battery. Nothing is really official yet about the Moto X, so, the above should be taken with a pinch of salt.
