We’ve been hearing about the Motorola X Phone for several months, and after it didn’t arrive during Google I/O, the leaks have continued. Over the weekend, another basic spec list appeared online, this time coming from the @evleaks Twitter account.
According to the tweet, the Motorola “Moto X” phone will be powered by a 1.7GHz, dual-core Snapdragon processor and 2GB of RAM. The rear camera may have 10 megapixels, while the video call camera should have 2 megapixels, plus the phone’s operating system is expected to be Android 4.2.2.
The screen size isn’t mentioned, but the resolution is listed as 720p, and previous leaks have said the phone will have a 4.7-inch display. The final spec is 16GB of internal storage memory. If these specs are correct, it looks like the Moto X won’t be quite the powerhouse other leaks had indicated it would be, as talk of a quad-core processor and a 1080p screen resolution has disappeared.
Instead, the Moto X described by @evleaks sounds considerably more mid-range, and not all that different to the HTC First. The phone could have some interesting software features though, with Dennis Woodside, CEO of Motorola, saying sensors will adjust how the phone works depending on the environment, so in a moving car it’ll react differently to when it’s in someone’s pocket.
Motorola has confirmed the existence of the Moto X, and has stated the phone will be out during the summer. The company hasn’t had a winning phone for a while, so we’re anxious to see how the Moto X turns out, and whether it’ll get an international release.
