Rogers to launch Motorola Moto X in Canada as an exclusive
As we've mentioned before, our source has informed us that those buying the phone over the Motorola website will be able to select the color of the back plate along with the trim. Yesterday, a new report said that those buying the Moto X online will be able to have the back of the phone engraved. Yesterday's report from ABC News also confirmed what our source told us weeks ago which is not to expect any hardware customization for the Moto X.
Those buying the Motorola Moto X from a carrier like Rogers will have to be happy with a standardized version of the handset. The phone will have a 4.7 inch screen with resolution of 720 x 1280 with a dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro under the hood. What makes this model so interesting is the sensors on board that will allow the phone to know when you are driving and thus automatically turn on the speaker phone. Additionally, Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside has hinted about a feature that will know when you are about to snap a picture and open up the camera app automatically.

It has the Adreno 320, so games will play extremely smoothly on this. Something weird, the Moto X scores higher in graphic benchmarks than other devices with similar systems. It scores higher than the Optimus G, which has the quad core version of the S4 Pro, and it scores higher than the Xperia SP which has the exact same dual core S4 Pro the Moto X has; all having the same resolution displays.

Why not? This isn't their flagship device. It's supposed to be mid ranged. It still have the S4 Pro with Adreno 320, so it will be a top performer.

Sucks for the Canadians who are OBLIGATED to sign with ROGERS in order to get this phone; hopefully they'll be able to get an unlocked U.S. version to run on other Canadian wireless providers.
