Evleaks has been able to cough up some specs for the Motorola Moto X, and the usually reliable source says the eagerly awaited device will come to market with a screen offering resolution of 720 x 1280; a dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor will power the phone which will include 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage. A 10MP camera is on back with a 2MP front-facing shooter and Android 4.2.2 is installed...

Eh another disappointment. Motorola seems to be sticking with their old ways of nicely built phones but specs of yesteryear

You miss the point. A phone that is supposedly revolutionary, that's supposedly being worked on closely with Google and supposedly kicks off Key Lime Pie which is said to be the holy grail to system resources - THAT kicks off with specs sheet of yesteryear!

And that my friend shows confidence from Googorola's part, a show-off that you don't need monster specs or even average of 2013 to run the future of Android smoothly even in the past. Everybody but Google can do it, and the Moto X will show Android can be light as well.

It will be revolutionary!

Sounds like it'll take Google Now and expand it much, much further. Also completely agree about your statement on KLP, doing more with less is the smartest move they can make.

Motorala said that google is not helping them make the motorala X at all. Better off waiting till 2014 for a quad core intel phone that can dual boot windows 8 and android.

I kinda' like the way that sounds, although, can't imagine why I'd need windows 8 since Android is leap years ahead of Windows Mobile 8. I like the dual boot thing, though. Maybe Windows Mobile XXIV and Android "Z"

Well, using your logic, my Note II should positively fly with KLP. Maybe that is why KLP has been delayed - cause the manufacturers are pisse?

What a shame, may the X RIP.

I loved my DROID RAZR and thought nothing would be better, especially so soon, but Samsung rocked it with the S3 and then the Note 2 and, now, the S4 and, soon, the S4 ZOOM. I expected the X to be at least comparable with the Note 2 / S4 on specs and somewhere between the two in size.

"We know when it’s in your pocket, we know when it’s in your hand", that part... is kinda creepy.

Proximty sensor, accelerometer... with Smart Actions my Razr already basically knows these and can take specific actions depending on the criteria.

But yeah... it does come as ever so creepy a statement. Especially just after PRISM made the news. Someone put a gag on this guy from Motorola, he lost his public speaking privileges.

Motorola has truely blown it! You guys have got to come better than 720 if you're going to stay alive.

it all depends on screen size. if its 4.5" or less then 720p is still good.

True, but wouldn't that make it a mid-mange device then? I know, 4.3 and up was considered flagship once upon a time, but this sounds like a bigger Razr M.

It is looking to be a mid ranged handset, kind of like a successor to the Razr M. Keep in mind though, this is probably not Motorola's flagship for the year. This is just their Google phone, not their own main line of phones. I'm pretty sure I remember someone (an executive from Motorola/Google or an analyst I can't remember) saying that Motorola will still have its own line of phone separate from what they make when they collaborate with Google.

Motorola's flagship will come in the holiday season, probably a Verizon exclusive in the U.S. The Moto X is supposed to be the pure Google Motorola handset that's available on many carriers.

It could be something like RAZR and RAZR M or like galaxy s4 with galaxy s4 mini

"We know when it’s in your pocket, we know when it’s in your hand, it’s going to know when you want to take a picture and fire up the cameras… The device will know when you’re in the car and it’s moving at 60mph and you’ll interact with it differently, more safely."

That alone is far from enough to sell this phone.
If it has good specs then they'll have a hit. Without good specs it'll be a flop.

But if it's priced at really good price (Nexus price) then they'll have a hit.

Here is what we already know:

1. CEO of Motorola Mobility Dennis Woodside have already confirmed that there will be such device.

2. Device will be made in the USA (Fort Worth, Texas).

3. Officially device will be named the Moto X.

4. Device will be broadly distributed.

5. Device is planned to go up against the iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy.

6. It will follow Google's Nexus strategy with high-quality, low-cost devices.

7. It will have OLED display.

8. Device will know when it is in a pocket, device will know when it is in your hand, device will know when you want to take a picture, device will know when you are in the car and potentially offer different interactions based on your situation. in other words device will be very "contextually aware".

9. Phones will be far more durable than they are now.

10. Big capacity baterry (~ 3300 mAh).

11. Phone will be released between now and October.

12. Phone or maybe just its prototype is already manufactured and usable.

It's point 5 that makes me think this has to be a joke. There is no way they can expect people to go for an android device with last years specifications. Unless by iPhone and Galaxy they mean last years models, there has got to be something missing from this leak.

"It's point 5 that makes me think this has to be a joke. There is no way they can expect people to go for an android device with last years specifications."

Agree, this leaks contradicts what Dennis Woodside have said before and that's mean that this leaks are fake or we are still missing something.

But that's where I'm confused at the disappointment comments. This isn't last summer's specs (that would be the Razr/Atrix HD), they're last winter's specs. A 1.7 GHz S4 Pro, 2 GB, and a 4.5-4.7" 720 screen sounds good enough to me. That's smack in the middle of iPhone 5S and S4 territory and could attract buyers of both.

It's basically an overclocked Nexus 4, minus 2 cores and it has better cameras. Plus the durable design, giant battery, and awesome antennae typical of Motorola phones.

I would buy it. With 2 Krait cores at 1.7 GHz, Adreno 320 pushing a 720p display, and 2 GB of RAM running on stock Android, you can guarantee this will be one of the most fluid Android experiences out there. All of that plus the Nexus like updates that everyone loves; I think this will be a very appealing device, especially if it takes on the usual Nexus pricing that Google does.

When the specs for the HTC One 'mini' and S4 Mini appeared, I saw a couple of people pining for a smaller phone with higher-end specs. Saying all the high-end Androids are 4.7-5", and why can't we have good specs in a midsize device? Maybe that's what Moto is going for here - something in a rarely-seen mid-high-end area.

So we see "only" a dual core 720 4.5ish screen, but with a great GPU, lots of RAM, and what could be (but I'm not holding my breath, given Motorola's track record) a solid camera and I would expect all-day battery. If they price it right - say $100 on contract, $500 full price - they could have a winner.

I need another HIGH END qwerty phone from HTC Sony or moto.......I'm loving the photon q but it would be nice if it were an htc :)

If it has 3300mAh battery and priced at $250-$350 this phone will be a winner. Not everybody cares about 1080p screen and quad core processors in their phone.

About 1080p vs 720p, it is personal xperience, I've always compare my gnote2 and my hTc One, ohhh boy! !! 1080p display is like glamor girl that you'd always wanted besides you (Gnote 2 is very useful smart pablet).720p is great also but, I'm talking about viewing pleasure. Thisss... Moto X is sgs3 competitor and the likes.

yeah but you're comparing 468 ppi with 267 ppi which is a real noticeable difference especially considering the Note II makes it's low ppi larger than life with it's 5.5" display. if this rumor is true (which i'm pretty sure it's not) the Moto X's display will have 312 ppi same as the Razr HD which is right beyond Retina territory and having a 1080p display at that size isn't going to make a terrible amount of difference unless you're a screen enthusiast.

it would only makes a difference if you are a different species with eyes being able to see higher resolutions.

It's has got to be the biggest drought Moto has ever experienced. I honestly thought once Google bought them that they would come with something really special but this doesn't seem to be it. It's starting to feel like they were bought strictly for their patents.
