We’ve been seeing quite a lot of leak and rumors regarding the first Motorola phone since Google has taken over, the latest leak is a promotional video from Rogers, a Canadian carrier, that shows off the device along with a host of pretty interesting features. First up, the device does not need you to use your hands to interact with it, all you need is your voice. Without touching the device, you can tell the Moto X to perform things – check the weather using Google Now, get directions, set an alarm, or “do nearly anything just by talking”.
Another feature being demonstrated in the video includes a new way of sending you notifications. The Moto X will not have any notification LEDs that blinks annoyingly especially when you’re trying to sleep in your pitch dark room and the light suddenly illuminates. Instead, you can customize your own notification to be displayed discretely on the screen itself – for example, a Facebook message notification that faintly appears on the display before fading away again.
The device will also show off a new gesture control – twist twice to launch the camera app. Without any shutter button, physical or on screen, all you need to do is tap anywhere on the display to snap a picture; long press to snap multiple shots at once.
Finally according to the promo video, it looks like the device will be launched on Rogers in August in both black and white. Watch the video below for the full demonstration.
