Get the current Idea on Mobile Phones: Mobile Phone Advisor

The heavily-anticipated Moto X phone has posed for the cameras once again, this time in a streamlined marketing video for Canadian mobile carrier Rogers.

The demonstration video details many of the brand-new attributes that will debut on the device, consisting of the always-listening voice command software application that doesn’t need individuals to touch the device.

The supposed Open Mic function will enable users to ask questions, bring up Google Now information, set alarms, or get instructions simply by speaking to the device.

It’s unclear at present whether the feature will be certain to the Moto X or is readily available more widely as part of a more recent version of Android.

Flashy new camera app

Another fascinating new function showcased, within the 2-minute video trip, is the ability to launch the Moto X’s camera app by flicking the wrist twice.

Users will likewise be able to catch images by tapping anywhere on the display, while holding down a finger will take multiple photos.

There’s also a new “Active Notifications” mode. Rather of a nondescript blinking light on the gadget, the display will blink gently with an icon from the appropriate app, for instance Facebook Messenger.

Again, it’s not particular whether these features will be Moto X certain or perhaps component of the rumored Android 4.3 refresh.

With the device readied to launch within the next few of weeks with an on-sale date apparently set up for August 23, we most likely will not have long to learn.
