Some Moto X Specs Revealed

moto x  launch date

Fresh off the news that Motorola will reveal the Moto X on August 1st, The Verge has found a source with details on the specs. According to them, their source used a CDMA variant, which means it will be out for either Verizon, Sprint, or both, including the rumored GSM versions for AT&T and T-Mobile.

Apparently the Moto X will have a 4.5″ display running on top of 2 GB of RAM, and a dual-core 1.7 GHz¬†Snapdragon MSM8960T processor (a Snapdragon 400 Adreno 320).

It will also have a 1500 mAh battery, which is really low for a smartphone, even with all the optimizations it’ll be getting. And the back of the phone, which will be made out of Kevlar, will be removable, either for the customizable backs, a battery, or both.

Since Android 4.3 isn’t out (yet), The Verge claims that the Moto X will come with Android 4.2.2. The “always-on” listening mode (seen in a now-pulled video by Rogers in Canada) will be turned off by default for privacy concerns, but you’ll be able to turn it on and even train Google Now to respond to your voice.

The wrist-flicking feature (also seen in the pulled Rogers video) will also be onboard and the camera will have an “auto HDR” mode.

Finally, similar to the Galaxy S4, when you pick up your Moto X, you’ll be able to see a summary of the notifications you missed along with the current time.

August 1st is a little less than two weeks away (at the time of writing), so we don’t have long to officially see the device.
