Google Motorola X could be a tough phone

It is anonymous tipster time, one with more details on the upcoming Motorola X smartphone, it seems.

As we previously reported, the Motorola X is likely to be Google's next flagship smartphone, which means it could land as a Nexus phone. Although a past promotional slide stuck with the 'X' branding, so who knows? Maybe the decision is yet to be made.

The initial leak claimed the phone will come with a 4.7-inch Full HD display, an NVIDIA Tegra 4i processor, a 16-megapixel camera and a five-megapixel front-facing camera. Now, new information from the Phone Arena site points to the phone being a toughie too.

If that information is to be believed, the screen is now a 4.8 inch screen, made of sapphire glass, said to be three times harder to crack than Gorilla Glass. The corners will feature 'rubber bumpers' and the back will be made of carbon fibre. Water resistance too, should you get caught in the odd shower now and again.

The latest leak also points to a different chip, specifically the quad-core 2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and a hefty 4,000mAh battery. Key Lime Pie will be the operating system, Google's latest take on Android, which is likely to be shown off at the Google I/O event in mid-May.

We're not sure we buy into this latest leak completely, not least because the launch date is said to be November, which leaves quite a gap between OS launch and phone. But if it does become reality and the pricing is on a par with the Nexus 4, we just hope stock levels are good. This will fly off the shelves.
