Our tipster had no information about any sort of customizable phone. What he is telling us is that the Motorola X will have a 4.8 inch screen, made of sapphire glass, said to be three times harder to crack than Gorilla Glass. The corners will be made with rubber bumpers and the back will be made of carbon fiber. Under the hood will be a quad-core 2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and a 4,000mAh battery provides all-day power. The device will be water resistant and will launch in November, in time for the holidays. Sounds nice, but we need to take this with our proverbial grain of salt.
If there is legitimacy to this rumor, the Motorola X could certainly compete and even surpass the U.S. version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 on some levels. If this does have a Full HD panel, it will have a higher pixel density than the nearly 5 inch FHD screen on the S4 and the Motorola X would have superior silicon. As we pointed out though, this is all conjecture for now, a fun parlor game for the adults to play after the kiddies have fallen asleep.
Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!
