Moto X leaked in detail, including full specs and benchmarks

By on July 22, 2013, 9:00 AM

The Moto X is one of the worst kept secrets of the past month, with consistent leaks flooding the internet including an eagle-eyed photographer spotting Google chairman Eric Schmidt with one of the smartphones in public. Motorola has scheduled an event on August 1 in New York City to launch the phone, but before then a leaker has managed to detail essentially everything about the Moto X.

Android Police obtained a set of images and benchmarks from the upcoming Motorola phone, and have put together a full list of specifications we should expect by the time its released. Each spec is backed up by evidence in either photos or a report from the FCC, and so the full list is allegedly:

  • A Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro MSM8960DT chipset, with a 1.7 GHz dual-core Krait CPU and Adreno 320 GPU
  • 2 GB of RAM
  • A 4.7-inch display at 720 x 1280, reduced to 4.5" and 720 x 1184 with Android's onscreen buttons
  • A 10.5-megapixel rear camera with flash, and a 2.1 MP front-facing camera
  • 16 GB of internal storage, 12 GB accessible to the user, no microSD card slot
  • A 2,200 mAh non-removable battery
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac; NFC
  • Android 4.2.2 out of the box
  • A size of 128.5mm x 65 mm (thickness not detailed)

The phone is photographed having run an AnTuTu benchmark, scoring 18,753; the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 score approximately 24,000 in this benchmark, making the Moto X more of a mid-range device. Another benchmark was run on the phone, the 3DMark Ice Storm Extreme test, with the Moto X scoring 7,143. This is above its flagship competition (the HTC One scores approximately 6,000 with a similar GPU), however the result could be in part due to the lower screen resolution.

An official launch is only a week or so away, so we'll soon discover if this information proves to be correct.

If the price is set right, this phone might look like a contender for google's own LG Nexus 4, Samsung S4 Mini and HTC Mini...

Ok... a dual core CPU, a bad display, and no SD card slot? How is this supposed to be a "flagship". The price has to be right in order to succeed.

In other words... an underpowered device. The rest of the phones out there have at the very least a quad-core CPU in it.

It may be to increase battery life. We will see on August 1st.

Come on, I need Droid 5 to be released within 2 years which seems unlikely if this fails.

I dont think they will release another QWERTY phone anytime soon. They are a dying breed.

$350 for N4, $250 for this?

Hmm I think dual core & 2GB of ram is better than quadcore with 1GB of ram.

Nothing uses 2GB of RAM on Android. Even games dont.

I have 2GB RAM phone and on idle it has 1.1GB free only. Very minimal background apps. More RAM = faster phone.

But JC is right in a way 1GB is still okay.
