Here we go again: The latest Motorola X specs

0. phoneArena 12 Mar 2013, 06:45 posted on

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

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

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?

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.

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.

With those specs it can not be a "game changer"

If the software and hardware had more efficient optimization then having dual cores wouldn't really matter.

If dual core was enough, then why is apple into quad core? Go away troll
