Next-Gen Motorola/Google Phones To Be “Right-Size” with Stock Android; Coming in 2H 2013


During a conversation with AllThingsD’s Dive Into Mobile conference, Eric Schmidt has shared his thoughts on Motorola’s upcoming products, which have been kept mostly secret over the last few months. Eric said that Motorola “have a new set of products that I have seen that are phenomenal.” On the other side, Motorola’s design chief Jim Wicks has also shared same thoughts.

Jim Wicks has noted that the next generation of hardware will be fantastic. Motorola has been working for the last eight months on their next generation of handsets, which will target the consumers who are looking for a “just right” screen size.

Wicks said “Certain people like a large screen, but there’s a sweet spot for consumers that we’re currently exceeding in the market. There are some people that like a big display, but there’s also a lot of people that want something that’s just about right.

Users will be very excited if they are looking for into smaller form-factor devices. “Smaller” Android handset means “just-right” in terms of size and Motorola is continuing to work on slimming down bezels of the handset, just like they did with the Motorola RAZR M handset and the company is planning to make phones that feel “just right” in the hand. Motorola is planning to focus on providing a stock Android experience with fast updates going forward and they will offer “best expression of Android and Google on the market.” The company is also focusing on a strategy to fight against the carrier exclusives that have made it so hard to sell devices in large numbers (such as Droid RAZR series on Verizon and Atrix series on AT&T). Instead, they will be going for a more universal brand, similar to the HTC One or the Galaxy S IV launching on all carriers. So, they will be building new cross-carrier brands, so that they will sell large number of devices into the hands of consumers

According to Wicks, next-gen Motorola phones are slated to arrive in the second of this year, 2013.
