The Moto X is one of those devices that you just can’t figure out. On one hand, the specs seem so yesteryear, but on the other hand, you know Google and Motorola must be up to something. I guess we won’t know anything for sure until August 1st, but we do have a good idea of what the specs are going to be. Most of these have already been reported, but here we go. Images of the AT&T version, also known as the “ghost” version leaked. It has a model number of XT1058.
The display is 4.7-inches and has a resolution of 720p (1184 x 720). The CPU is a Qualcomm S4 Pro MSM8960DT clocked at 1.7GHz and the GPU is an Adreno 320. You can expect to see 2GB of RAM, a 10.5MP rear camera, and a 2.1MP front camera. There is 16GB of internal storage on the leaked device, but we don’t know what other options they might offer. It doesn’t look like there will be an SD slot, which isn’t a surprise since there is a heavy influence from Google. The battery is expected to be 2,200mAh and non-removable, which isn’t all that big when you consider what Motorola has achieved with the RAZR line. As to WiFi, you can expect 802.11a/b/g/n/ac and NFC will be onboard. The test unit is running Android 4.2.2.
As to benchmarks, the AnTuTu came in at 18,753 which is much lower than recent smartphones such as the Galaxy S 4 and the HTC One. That’s not surprising when you consider it’s a dual core vs quad-core. However, when comparing it to the Nexus 4 and Optimus G Pro, it scores very well. Both of those phones are quad-core. We also have a score on the 3D Mark Ice Storm Extreme, which is 7,143, and better than all major phones.
The Moto X definitely has me intrigued, how about you guys?
