Motorola chooses pure Android on its new smartphone

A new Motorola smartphone has appeared in a video on Vietnamese portal Tinhte. Although with interesting specifications, the smartphone does not seem to be X phone. However, it seems to confirm a early rumor: Motorola abandon its custom interface Motoblur in favor of a pure Android experience.

This device codename is XT912A and it features a 4-inch screen with a resolution of 720p, and based on these technical specification that makes us say that it is not Motorola XPhone. Under the hood we find what appears to be a processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, Adreno 320 GPU chip, 2GB of RAM and a 2000 mAh battery.

It has very thin edges and plastic unibody enclosure seems to indicate that the battery is not removable. However, it is also possible that this is only a prototype. Here is the video in which you can get a better idea of this smartphone, which was designed from the union of the Motorola and Google.

The most interesting thing about this smartphone is that it seems to offer the pure Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, including widgets to the lock screen.

Motorola chooses pure Android on most of their devices

Yesterday, we learned that the U.S. models Droid RAZR and RAZR MAXX in the future should abandon the custom interface Motoblur to receive the upgrade to the pure Jelly Bean 4.1.2. Special applications such as Motorola Motoactiv, Motoprint or MotoCast will be replaced by Google Apps.

Will this change be applied in other countries  and not only only on American continent? If this decision is in the path taken by Google to approach closely by Motorola including the manufacturer of the next Nexus with Motorola X-Phone, then other manufacturers have the desire to do so.
