Moto X, the upcoming new Android-based smartphone from Motorola, is getting closer to making an official appearance, and more info on its hardware specifications is now available, courtesy of a new leak.The handset has emerged online in a series of photos that show benchmarking results for it, along with the full details on the hardware that Motorola will pack inside it.
For those out of the loop, we should note that Motorola is expected to bring the new device to the market with a 4.7-inch 720x1184-pixel resolution.
Furthermore, the handset packs a 1.7GHz dual-core Qualcomm S4 Pro MSM8960DT processor inside, paired with an Adreno 320 GPU and 2GB of RAM.
Additionally, the handset is said to feature 16GB of internal memory, along with Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac connectivity, NFC, and a 2200 mAh battery inside. Unfortunately, Motorola did not include a microSD memory card slot with this phone.
On the back, the Motorola X smartphone, which reportedly sports the model number XT1058 and the codename of Ghost (it is expected to arrive on the market in the US on AT&T’s network), will sport a 10.5-megapixel photo snapper with flash.
Moto X will pack a 2.1MP front-facing camera to enable users to make video calls while on the go, and will run under Google’s Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system.
As Android Police notes, the mobile phone managed to score around 18.7k in AnTuTu, while reaching a score of 7.1k in 3DMark Ice Storm Extreme.
Overall, the Moto X is shaping up as an appealing device, especially for those looking for performance inside an affordable device, yet it will be no high-end smartphone, that’s for sure.
Rumor has it that Motorola might be set to make the new Android-based device official as soon as this week, during a press event set for July 24, so stay tuned to learn more on it.
