The purported technical specifications of the Motorola Moto X smartphone have been posted by @evleaks, a frequent source of information about unreleased devices.
According to the post, the handset will sport a 720p touchscreen display, a 1.7GHz dual-core MSM8960 Pro processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, and lastly, dual cameras, including a rear-facing one with a 10 MP sensor, complemented by a 2 MP front-facing camera. Such post leaves out information about the battery, the measurement of the screen, and the connectivity options, among others.
Judging from these specifications, it appears that the Motorola Moto X will be aimed at the mid-range segment. That said, Motorola’s statement a few weeks ago stated that the device is deemed as a competitor against the Samsung Galaxy smartphones and the Apple iPhone. Given these specifications, however, it is quite difficult to imagine how Motorola will manage such feat. Granted, the full list of features is not yet available, which means that Motorola may still provide consumers with some surprises, such as a good battery, or even an attractive price tag.
It bears mentioning, as well, that the leaked list of specifications is unofficial, and like all leaks, should be taken with a grain of salt.
Previously, rumors suggested that the X Phone would have an NVIDIA Tegra 4i processor, 16 MP rear-facing camera, 5 MP front-facing camera, and a 4.7-inch full HD display. It was also believed to come in different colors.
Motorola just a few weeks ago already confirmed the existence of the Motorola Moto X smartphone, which was earlier rumored to be called the Google X Phone.
Motorola’s Dennis Woodside, speaking at the D11 Conference, revealed that the Moto X will be assembled near Fort Worth, Texas. This would make the device the first smartphone to be built in the United States. He furthermore noted that that its internal parts will come from Taiwan, Korea, as well as twelve American states. Woodside also boasted about the device’s so-called contextual awareness through its sensors, which will give the device an edge over others.
