motorola xt1058 xfon

Over the weekend tipster extraordinaire, @evleaks, quickly tweeted out some specs for the soon-to-be-released Motorola Moto X (formerly known as the “X Phone”). According to @evleaks’ inside sources, the Moto X might not feature the next-gen future proof specs you were hoping for.

We’re more than likely looking at a modest “dual-core” 1.7GHz MSM8960 Pro. If that looks off to you, keep in mind there is a “Pro” designated dual-core processor in Qualcomm’s S4 lineup, although technically the MSM8960T. Other specs include a 720p display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, with 10MP/2MP cameras all running on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

Essentially a Nexus 4 without that Glass back, most of this is inline with what we’d expect from a “high-end” smartphone that Motorola bills as affordable and for the masses. The device is gearing up to launch any week now, with an official announcement already out of the way, although lacking on official images or spec sheets. Let’s hope Motorola and individual carriers will have more announce soon.
