Here we go again: The latest Motorola X specs
0. phoneArena posted on 12 Mar 2013, 06:45
After Monday's false leak of what was originally claimed to be a blurry picture of the Motorola X (called the NXT in the leak), you can't blame us for being really skeptical when a whole new list of specs for the phone was being talked about; these sound more legit and include a 5 inch screen FHD screen insteasd of the 4.7 inch panel mentioned in the leak on Monday...
This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

yeah, this is way off from the first given specs...

will lol at this if google put a dual core on it. They said it would be a game changer and a dual core? hah. game changer in deed.

If it's a fast dual core and does not slow down... I'm ok with that.

that must be a quad core if they want it to be called a "game changer" hmmp something's fishy on it, oh well let's just wait for the official announcement from motorola

IF THEY WANT IT TO BE A REAL "GAME CHANGER"..
MOTOROLA X SHOULD BE AN OCTO-CORE! Hahahaa.. 8 cores! :DD

Remember cores are not everything, a dual-core can be faster or have the same speed of a quad-core processor, the archtecture and many other things are responsible for the speed of the processor.

Will it be possible to have a 2GHz dual core processor?
33. TheLolGuy posted on 12 Mar 2013, 10:14 5 1
Quad-cores offer theoretically better performance for less power usage when utilized optimally... but guess what? 99% of apps won't use more than 2 cores let alone 1, and parallel computing is much harder than you realize. It's something only the very talented can do.
The only applications that could really use the 2 extra cores are ones you shouldn't be doing on your phone like video editing. (video editing on your phone... I mean come on)
I'm down for a dual-core for less cramped die. There will come a time when the average programmer will be able to utilize more than 1 core, but that time isn't now... Way to blindly fall into the marketing hype. The Qualcomm CEO said the core-wars are pointless for a reason. And he's right.

What if it's Intel Clover Trail+ Dual Core?? What if it's Qualcomm S4 Pro 8960T (Dual Core Snapdragon + Adreno 320)??

How does dual core CPU result in better camera performance? Confused.

Mmm this is no good news for those waiting for Motorola X Phone. So that directive of Google was right when he said Motorola's lineup wasn't going to wow anybody. Pitty.

i think it will have snapdragon 800 and a quadcore

First motorola should prove their worth....then they should ask for a 25000 unit buy stuff

so a lot of android manufacturers now pulling the trigger to make "better pictures"?! it seems like they really want to challenge the PureView tech!
yet i think nokia cant perfect the pureview like what it did on 808 coz of WP's limitation so so camera interface unlike what nokia can do to either meego and symbian!

Blah blah blah again poor Motorola desperate for any possible attention. Imagine these guys with a device that has eye tracking technology. Everyone knows Motorola is poor in the software development area their not Samsung. Can't help but laugh at the attention Motorola wants so desperately. In theory Motorola X is a good thought but to be able to compete with the BIG DOG Samsung they better bring much better than an A game. They need to make the BEST DEVICE EVER and we all know that won't take place.

Why are you even reading articles that don't have Samsung in the title...

where are your 2012 statistics?
im surprised to see you wrote new comment. LOL

Desperate for attention? Kind of like you right? lolz.

And, it is "they're not Samsung," not "their not Samsung."

If the software and hardware had more efficient optimization then having dual cores wouldn't really matter.
17. wando77 posted on 12 Mar 2013, 07:24 8 2
You mean like a simple grid of icons? That would just look crap
23. protozeloz posted on 12 Mar 2013, 08:39 2 1
If dual core was enough, then why is apple into quad core? Go away troll
30. McLTE posted on 12 Mar 2013, 09:52 4 0
lol.. talk about troll.
While I can't stant Mxyz 99% of the time.. he/she has it right on here.
Consumers, even us "techies" get way too hung up on cores and processor frequencies. The phones these days are more than powerful to run anything that is being developed.
I'm sure if Moto threw you a dual core and called it a quad.. you would smile and gloat to your friends about how insancely powerful it is. You wouldn't even notice the difference.
48. protozeloz posted on 12 Mar 2013, 13:50 1 0
Are you sure about it? Reviews from the 4 cores galaxy s3 and 2 cores galaxy s3 clearly say there is a difference... Same with nvidia comparison of multiple core architecture shows how better quad core is...
15. Bozzor posted on 12 Mar 2013, 07:22 1 0
Um....this is clearly crap info, unless the dual core would be Intel.
24. boosook posted on 12 Mar 2013, 08:44 0 0
I wonder how Google thinks they can stay on top if Motorola does not launch its phones worldwide and is laying off employees everywhere. Android depends too much on Samsung and Google does not seem to have a plan B. Actually, its plan B should be Motorola, but it seems that they're not investing on it, just trying to make it profitable.
26. R-vjn posted on 12 Mar 2013, 09:09 0 0
no of cores & clock speed doesnt really matter.. it depends on various other factors like the type of manufacturing process, and also the sole ability of the cores to handle the power and actually put it for use.
Look at the famous AMD vs Intel battle. The 8-core FX8350 from AMD can only match the 4-core i5 3570k from intel.
So don't get mad because it has only a dual core.
If it can deliver, I'm more than happy..!
28. dragonscourgex posted on 12 Mar 2013, 09:21 0 0
Like PA keep saying, take these "leaks" with a grain of salt. R-vjn also has a very good point. If it does in up running a dual core, we should wait to see the benchmarks and real world performance reviews before we start judging it. I think specs come more into play when you are trying to run higher demanding app, such as rich graphics games. But, for the OS operation itself, I find my current Droid Razr with a dual core runs ICS very good. I hardly get any lag.

Oh please drop down to a 4.7 inch screen. 5 is too big. Most people don't want a phone that big. Look at then Droid DNA. Who buys that?
34. dragonscourgex posted on 12 Mar 2013, 10:16 2 0
A fellow employee of mine has the Droid DNA. He loves it. I've check his out before, it does not feel any worse then the 4.3" screen on my Droid Razr. So, if they build it like the Droid DNA..I think it will do fine.
38. androiddownsouth posted on 12 Mar 2013, 10:47 1 0
I love my DNA. I wouldn't trade it for any phone on Verizon. Never had it freeze up, even playing games. Battery is not bad at all for how I use it either.

Less bezel, the better. As for cores, people need to read up on that subject before getting butte-hurt that a phone has 2, and not 4, cores. Most phones, and apps, will not properly utilize four cores. All that matters is that the phone performs properly and can multitask efficiently.. 2 GB of ram will be a plus. I am curious why people are not concerned about the GPU of this phone....

Please, no mentioning of I products....they have a tailor-made chip for a reason....lol

"Game changer" from Sroogle and Moto? Blah!!! Until the day they release it, it will be too late for them to reach the market where as the Sammy SIV will triumph the world...
40. dragonscourgex posted on 12 Mar 2013, 11:29 5 0
I'm starting to notice that Samsung and Samsung fans are starting to remind me more and more of Apple and Apple fans each passing day.

There better be a microHDMI port on this phone.
44. a_merryman posted on 12 Mar 2013, 12:29 0 0
Idk why all the dual-core hate, how is putting a quad-core in the phone a game-changer? Every other flagship device this year will have one, man...they're all such gamechangers. As it was said, the software cant fully utilize the cores right now...so there isn't much need for more than dual-core.
Anyhow, it could be that this dual-core is the new Intel Atom based off the bay trail architecture, and I think that would be a gamechanger for the smartphone market since it would be the first time Intel would be used in a flagship device.

2 krait 400 cores coupled with adreno 330...is awesome for smartphone.

I think Google may have worked out with klp and tweaked it to get maximum performance out of dual-cores.iPhones and Windows phones also have dual-core processors but do not lag.
andthis its just a rumour and we must wait.

I choose moto over any other device anytime because of its battery,.... battery is motos' speciality so as long as they keep up with it..... i am ok with slow progressive steps!!!

it doesnt suprise me if Motorola get new android Key Lime Pie because Motorola is son from his father,Google....
#it make a crystal clear Google want to fight with Samsung...........................
55. NokiaFTW posted on 13 Mar 2013, 14:31 0 0
The game changer would be if Google could deliver performance that is better than a quad core processor with that dual core processor .
