The Motorola X Phone release date seems imminent and after we’ve seen a huge wave of Moto X (that’s how the Chicago-based phone maker likes to call it) rumors and leaked specs and design hitting the web, now we get to see another alleged photo of the highly anticipated smartphone.
The latest rumors regarding the new flagship smartphone of the Chicago-based company are hinting that the Moto X release date has been set for August 1st. The rumor mill also speculates about the Moto X technical specs. It seems that the smartphone will sport a 4.7-inch display with 720p resolution and that that it will be powered by a Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.7 GHz (most of the sources say that it’s a dual-core unit).
The Motorola X Phone technical specs list also includes 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage and a 10 megapixel camera mounted on the back. Even though the hardware platform of the Moto X is not impressive it seems that selling point of the new handset will not be its specs, but the special software functions.
A few weeks ago, when the Motorola officials confirmed the existence of the Moto X at D11 event, they said that the new smartphone will come “contextually aware” software. We have no idea what that actually means, but it should be cool. But if the Moto X is contextually aware, it means that the flagship device will not run stock Android as it was initially rumored, as those “contextually aware” features must be part of a custom user interface.
The Motorola XT1056 codename was spotted in the Sprint 4G LTE network and it seems that the smartphone is already tested by the US-based carrier. We are talking about the same mysterious model that hit the FCC as XFON, but that was supposed to be the AT&T variant.
The next-gen Motorla flagship smartphone will reportedly run Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box and the rumors say it will have a removable battery.
