Around here we love leaks! One of the latest leaks involves a new version of the Moto X. We have seen sporty editions of phones in the past. The phone that immediately comes to mind when thinking of sporty devices is the Galaxy Active series. These phones are water proof, drop proof, scratch proof, life proof. It looks like Motorola wants to enter the rugged phone scene with a sporty phone of their own.
The leak comes from South America and reveals what appear to be plans for an upcoming Moto X Sport device. Specs for this device were also divulged in the leaks. The phone if it makes it to market may include a 5.2″ display, 1.5ghz quad core processor, 16mp rear camera, and 5mp front facing camera, This leaked device should launch some time in August which is pretty quick to have never heard of this device before now.
There were no notes telling us just how rugged this device is. No drop protection, waterproofing or anything else had been added to the leaked info. I guess we shall see if this ends up being real or vaper ware. What are your thoughts? Would you be willing to pay an extra $100 for a rugged version of the phone you currently own? Do you think rugged phones are gimmicks? or do they really have a genuine place in our daily lives?
