New Specs for Moto X Leaked

By  |  4 Comments

Specs for the Moto X smartphone have been leaked by famed Twitter user @evleaks, which if true would reveal a more modest Motorola Android smartphone. The new leaked specs deviate from prior speculations that we’ve heard, and it’s unclear if the new leaks are accurate, but we’ll be keeping an eye out for any changes ahead of the launch of the device.

Now, according to @evleaks, Motorola’s forthcoming smartphone, which should become widely available on a variety of different carriers when it launches, will have a dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB of storage, a 10-megapixel rear-facing camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

It was previously believed that the Moto X would be one of the new hardware models that will be introduced with a next generation of the Android operating system believed to be Android 4.3. It’s unclear if that will still be the case, but even if the Moto X doesn’t launch with Android 4.3, Motorola and Google executives had promised that the company would launch upgrades more swiftly.

Prior leaks suggest that the phone would launch with a 4.7-inch display, a 16-megapixel rear camera, quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor, and will come in a variety of different colors. The new leaks show that Motorola is focused on bringing more modest specs to what it hopes will be a more mass market smartphone rather than focusing on trying to match or compete with recent flagships, like the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4.

How Motorola will try to stay competitive and differentiate from its competitors despite not having the latest and greatest processors, cameras, and other hardware is through intelligent sensors. At the All Things D D11 conference, company head Dennis Woodside had confirmed that the device will come with a new sensor array that will allow the phone to record more, adapt to your surroundings, and simplify your life.

Additionally, the phone will become the first smartphone in history to be assembled in the U.S. The company had recently confirmed that the device will be assembled at a Texas manufacturing facility and will become available this summer.

    The Motorola CEO stated that the phone would have “2″ processors (Tegra 4 has 2 processors not the S4 Pro) so the leak might be for the other devices that he referred to that are also coming out over the next few months.

    I would totally carry this is a second device to my N4, if it had a quad core processor. Dual is very 2010. I am unable…I just can’t with a dual core processor. I was excited about this phone and was (still am) hoping they release this with quads running it. At least in the states, dayum, come on Moto. I really want to try a Moto device, but not at the expense of going backwards.

    Have a feeling Google will go by a different strategy then normal. With the buyout of so many software companies like Nik Software, Behavio, and the ownership of Motorola, I would guess that there is to be features that will change the landscape of all android devices from here on.
