Moto X features Dual LTE MIMO Smart Antennas, which should deliver the best 4G LTE performance (faster data speeds and better reception). Most OEMs support 4G technologies on the same antenna as 2G/3G, but Moto will have 2 antennas dedicated to 4G LTE. There will be 5 antennas inside Moto X: 4G main, 4G diversity, 2G/3G main, GPS, and BT/WiFi. Please +1 or share for more moto goodies.

- I may still get the htc one, then if the moto x turns out to be uber awesome, sell the htc one and get the x off contract... and make a bit of side profit >.>
If it's at all possible to do such a thing :PJul 26, 2013
- I feel the same way about my Bionic. Every once in a while i peer into my desk drawer and wonder what might have been. :'(Jul 26, 2013
- Heydo you know if that is a button on the back where the Motorolo logo is? If so, do you know the function of it? I read something a few months back about Motorola getting a patent for touch controls on the back or something along those lines. Would be nice to have a button for 1 touch voice command if you dont want the always on feature enabled.Jul 26, 2013
- What's "Dual LTE MIMO" besides Motorola's newest marketing term?
Every cat 3 or 4 UE on the market since HTC Thunderbolt had 2x2 MIMO since its the Release 8 LTE requirement.
Moto X cerainly can't get "faster speeds" if the baseband processor is still same Category 3 or 4, capable of 2x2 MIMO leveraging spatial multiplexing.
Cat 5 UE basebands, which are due by the end of 2014 or 2015, will be able to go up to 4x4 MIMO and effectively double the downlink throughout if the setup is supported on the eNodeB side as well.
You're also saying that there will be 5 antennas, 4G main, 4G diversity, 2G/3G main, GPS, and BT/WiFi.
But I don't see 2G/3G diversity which is btw mandatory for CDMA devices, and also many W-CDMA devices have adopted this antenna setup for quite a while.
This whole thing is making me scratch my head tbh...
Anyone?Jul 27, 2013
- #x# figures is that there is always an extra that handles attenuation (and other things) for all the bands/tech levels.You also seem to misunderstand the meaning of dual-MIMO. Single input, single output would be 1x1. Multi input, multi output (MIMO) would be 2x2. Dual MIMO is, rather logically, two sets of 2x2 - hence, 4x4. The detail that is left out of theJul 31, 2013
- I should also note that the #x# figures do not translate into numbers of physical antennae in any logical or arithmetic manner. One might think that MIMO (2x2) would require 4 antennae, but it does not. Nor does dual MIMO (4x4) require 8 (or 16).
Really, the bottom line is that antennae geometry and radio architecture are extremely complicated.Jul 31, 2013
