Moto X phone leak reveals modest specs

Serial smartphone leaker EvLeaks has a pretty good track record when it comes to revealing specs and prices of unannounced handsets. His latest tweet talks about the much-hyped Motorola X phone, which has been confirmed by the company.

According to EvLeaks’ tweet, the Moto X will not feature top of the line hardware, instead will compete with the mid-rangers in the market currently. It will have a Qualcomm MSM8960 Pro dual-core processor, clocked at 1.7GHz. This may not be able to go toe-to-toe with the quad-core CPUs of flagships today, but we are hoping there’s some killer optimisation to make software run smoothly. Speaking of which, the X will ship with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, says EvLeaks. We have already seen many instances of Android 4.3 leaking in benchmark tests, so we are a bit suspect about this particular speculation.

The leak also mentions that the device will have a 720p display, but there’s no mention of the screen size. The X phone will have a 10-megapixel camera on the back, which will be accompanied by a 2-megapixel shooter on the front. In addition, the phone is said to be carrying 2GB of RAM and internal storage is expected to be 16GB, with no mention of a possible microSD card slot.

The X phone was confirmed by Motorola’s CEO Dennis Woodside last month, and the phone will be made in the USA and is said to offer long battery life and a variety of sensors for new ways of interaction with the smartphone.
