Details about the device are leaking out ahead of the August 1 reveal.
Invitations for the Moto X launch event went out on Friday morning. The event itself will be held in New York City and is set to take place on August 1. The invitations followed a tweet from Motorola that revealed the phone would be built in the United States. What's more, it contained a cryptic clue that customers would be able to customize their own handsets. What Motorola hasn't revealed are the specifications for the phone. Luckily, with the launch still a fortnight away, the rumor mill has plenty of time to fill the gap with leaks and speculation.
Today brings us some of the former with specs courtesy of a source of The Verge's. The Verge writes that this person has handled a CDMA version of the phone and revealed that it is based on a dual-core Snapdragon (1.7 GHz), has 2GB of RAM and is roughly 4.5 inches in size. This source also mentioned a 'removable Kevlar rear shell.' He also confirmed some details on the software, which is 'almost stock' Android, including the wrist-flick camera activation and 'OK Google Now...' voice commands that were mentioned in the Rogers video from last week.
Not a lot, but more than we had before. Other rumored specs include support for 4G LTE, 16 GB of internal storage, a 2MP camera on the front, a 10MP camera on the back, and Jelly Bean. August 1 can't come soon enough!
