According to a Verge tipster who’s reportedly been handling the CDMA version of the upcoming Moto X, the device features some rather “average” specs for a next-gen flagship. It’s probably not what you many of you wanted to hear (but you should have known by now). Here is what you can most likely expect when the Moto X is formally announced on August 1st:
- 4.5-inch display
- 1.7GHz Snapdragon MSM8960T processor
- 2GB RAM
1,500 mAh battery[Update: battery size is still unconfirmed]
- Removable “Kevlar” shell
- Near-stock Android 4.2.2
Many of these specs were confirmed by our friend @evleaks many weeks ago, so it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. While the Moto X’s “killer feature” will undoubtedly be its Google Glass-like always voice actions, the tipster also mentions this isn’t enabled by default (most likely in an effort to address privacy concerns).
With a return to smaller displays and the tiny bezels on this device, expect it to feel much smaller in the hand than current handsets. I still have faith in this device and will reserve final judgment until I can get some intimate time with it. As it stand, how are you guys feeling about the Motorola Moto X?
