More Twitter leaks detail the hardware expected of the Motorola Moto X.
Despite the mundane and generic naming scheme, Google has chosen to continue with its upcoming Motorola Moto X, according to some more leaks happening over Twitter. We already know the device will be shown in October and is to be manufactured in the U.S., as CEO Dennis Woodside revealed during the D11 conference back in May. This time we offer the latest volley of rumors listing actual specifications expected of the device.
The mid-range device would have a size somewhere between 4.5 to 5 inches, featuring a 720p OLED display that would utilize the edge-to-edge design. The CPU would be ARM's dual-core Krait processor clocked at 1.7 GHz, with 2 GB of RAM, on a MSM8960 Pro Chipset (which all translates to the SoC being the Snapdragon S4). The phone should come with 16 GB of internal storage, and the system on the rumored chip means that connectivity would include at least Bluetooth 4.0, dual radio WiFi and HSPA+. There is still much debate about the quality of the two cameras. The forward one would be placed at 2 megapixels, while the rear camera could range anywhere from 8 to 13 megapixels. As the launch date of the phone is close to Google's expected release of Android 5.0 "Key Lime Pie," the phone could even be one of the first prototypes running the new OS.
All these specifications are still speculation, though, so they should be taken with a grain of salt and a healthy dose of skepticism. In the meantime, we will keep you informed of any more interesting developments. Tell us what you think about these rumors and whether you think all these new phones being released lack essence, as few have key aspects that set them apart from the crowd.
