Report: Specs for Made-in-USA Moto X Leaked

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!

    These smartphone specs are inching ever so close to my laptop's specs. Wow tech.

    2Gigs of ram is matched already. When 2.2GHz dual core drops in, I'm done for.
