Motorola has updated the Moto X today – adding a bigger display, better processor and adding more megapixels to its camera. The new Moto X will now feature a 5.2-inch AMOLED display, a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, and a 13-megapixel rear camera.

Other hardware specs include 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 4G LTE, NFC and Bluetooth 4.0 LE support. The Moto X’s camera at the back will also be able to record in both 1080p and 4K video quality, and have a dual LED flash.

One of the biggest points Motorola is touting is that it balances performance with style. As such, the phone features a curved metal frame and will be made from “authentic materials” like FSC certified wood and genuine Horween leather. And like its predecessor, you will be able to customise almost everything through Moto Maker – which is only available in selected markets (sadly not Australia).

In terms of software, the Moto X will run the Android 4.4 Kit Kat. While it has not added a skin, it has added its own features – including voice controls that will let you control your phone and run custom prompts. It will also adapt to you and your lifestyle.

Motorola Australia has confirmed that it is coming to Australia later this year, but will announce availability and pricing closer to its local launch date.
