Moto X specification leaks

There has been a lot of talk about the Motorola or Moto X smartphone, but not a lot of hard detail. In fact, other than a blurry publicity shot and confirmation that it exists off Google, we haven't had a lot to go on at all officially. So we've had to go off rumour and speculation thus far. Indeed, that's what we have here, only this time it's from a usually reliable source.

It is from the @evleaks Twitter account, which is regularly flagged up on this site and for good reason. Its track record for getting it right is second to none. That's the good news. The bad news is what they actually say is coming under the Moto X banner, which is pretty underwhelming.

For a start, it will have Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, rather than being a showcase for Android 5.0 (Key Lime Pie). The latter has generally been the expectation. But the lack of it could mean a launch is coming sooner rather than later.

As for the hardware, that's down as a 720p display, 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro, 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 10-megapixel rear-facing camera and 2-megapixel front camera. Not bad, but with this being the first Motorola phone since Google bought the company, we just expected more.

Saying that, Google mentioned in an interview that the Moto X will have sensors that will know (for example) when the phone is taken out of someone’s pocket or travelling in a car, acting differently in each circumstance.

So the real story could be outside the general spec sheet. More on this when we hear it.
