Google is believed to be working on a new flagship smartphone and a flagship tablet in its Motorola division. Unlike its Nexus line of devices built by various Android partners, the rumored “X Phone” and “X Tablet” will mark the first time Google controls everything from the device’s hardware to its software. Rumored specs are said to include a top-notch camera and photo software, a bendable display and a high-end ceramic case. Now, Google CEO Larry Page has incited a new round of speculation on Tuesday with comments he made during the company’s fourth quarter earnings call. “In today’s multi screen world, the opportunities are endless… battery life is a huge issue… when you drop your phone it shouldn’t go splat,” he said, according to Quartz. ”There’s a real potential to invent new and better experiences.”
