Rumors of the Motorola X Phone are heating up and we have some new possible details for you today. Some of these seem a bit iffy, some sound exciting and some are just unbelievable. It seems no matter how we look at this phone, we have no idea what Google and Motorola are trying to do here. Let’s just jump into today’s murmurings, shall we?

Phone Arena’s sources claim to have the inside scoop on the X Phone’s details. Allegedly, some of his friends have been testing this bad boy and we are looking at some great improvements laid out in the table.

For starters, Google is said to be working with Motorola to focus on better battery life and superior durability. According to the insider, the device will have a kevlar back (of course) and a hefty battery (like the RAZR Maxx). It is also stated that it will have a 4.8-inch display, a quad-core processor and… wait for it… a microSD slot and up to 128 GB of internal storage! That is some serious storage, and we seriously doubt this will happen, but we’ll see.

We are not sure what is going on here. If this is true, Google is going back to its old ways, as Google has permanently moved away from expandable storage. Then again, this is not meant to be a Nexus device – even if it is said it will be sold via the Play Store, have stock Android and be built in collaboration with Google.

The last rumored addition, and probably the most exciting, is an improved camera. More specifically, it is said to come with a Sony Exmor sensor (Apple devices are powered with these sensors). We know many of you have been begging Google to improve camera quality, so this might very well be the first step.

Like always, you should take this with a grain of salt. Even trusted sources have been wrong in the past, and it is way too early for us to really bet on any of this. If you are patient enough, you can go ahead and speculate in the comments, let us know what you think, and wait until Google I/O to see if any of this is true.
