Motorola's upcoming smartphone Moto X is back in the news, thanks to twitter activist @evleaks who has revealed the explosive details of the much-anticipated handset from the American company.
Serial twitter leakste, @evleaks on Saturday revealed that the Moto X would pack a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro (MSM8960T) processor and run on Android OS v4.2.2 Jelly Bean with 2GB RAM and 16GB inbuilt memory.
He also claimed that the Motorola phone would sport HD 720p display, but failed to reveal the size of the screen.
Taking note of the limited specs revealed, Moto X looks more of a mid-range smartphone than a high-end device, as many would have anticipated. It does not match up to the bar set by the current crop of top smartphones in the market -Galaxy S4, HTC One, Xperia Z and even the 8-month old Apple iPhone 5.
Motorola had generated lots of hype regarding the Moto X phone when it confirmed the existence of smartphone at the recently concluded D11: All Things Digital event in California, last month. Company CEO, Dennis Woodside said that the phone would be manufactured in Texas, US and would be making its debut this summer.
Motorola spokesperson, Danielle McNally, had said that "There are several business advantages to having our Illinois and California-based designers and engineers much closer to our factory. For instance, we'll be able to iterate on design much faster, create a leaner supply chain, respond much more quickly to purchasing trends and demands, and deliver devices to people here much more quickly. And as a part of Google we're being encouraged to take big bets on things that make a difference."
If the specifications of Moto X revealed by the @evleaks do become reality, many Google Android fans, who were anticipating a 'Nexus' like super phone, would be disappointed.
