Motorola’s Design Chief confirms the first pure Motorola Google phones will come this year

Sascha Segan, arguably the internet’s most vocal critic against today’s race to create the largest smartphones capable of fitting into a normal sized pocket, has scored an exclusive interview with Jim Wicks, Motorola’s Design Chief. I recommend you read Segan’s entire article for all the nitty gritty details, but here are the two main points that stand out.

One, Wicks confirms that Motorola will launch a new line of devices by the end of this year. Said devices will be “Google-influenced” and run stock Android. They’ll possibly even lack operator bloatware in the United States, which is sadly still a major issue.

And two, Motorola will make phones that are “just right” when it comes to size. Considering that Samsung’s Galaxy S4 has a 5 inch screen and Apple’s iPhone 5 has a 4 inch screen, the rumors that were floating around the internet earlier this year about a 4.5 inch Nexus 5 are starting to make a lot of sense. I wish there was more I could share, but there’s no additional information.

Now we wait. Patiently.
