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.
