The hype around the Motorola Moto X is building up. The device is different by design - with middling specs, it focuses on function instead…

If it was a Massive 5" screen phone them maybe but this is way way more, that mic always on & the clear pixel camera look very good.

It'll be something more these days than Nexus One was a few years ago. On the other hand, Moto X seems to be too 'small' to make extra love at first sight. It lacks huge screen & full HD resolution these days to make a big mar.ket entry.

You don't need a Big display for it to sell...there are many who consider the 4.3-4.7 inch is great for a phone & comfortable for the hands...pushing that higher is considered a phablet (in my opinion) ...

I pray that the 'open mic' feature actually comes from Wolfson's new WM5110 High Definition Audio System on a Chip.

The press release available at tinyurl.com/qyo4zpe states that: "The WM5110, or Wolfson’s WM0010 and WM0011 products, combined with Sensory’s TrulyHandsfree solution, delivers speed, accuracy, reliability and noise robustness in a very small and low power footprint, with minimal impact to handset standby time, enabling a true ‘always on, always listening’ experience for the first time."

Wolfson DAC would mean great audio. And it appears this technology has been recently adopted by Sharp for their latest phones: tinyurl.com/oy6jh3a

Zero chance of that. It's Moto proprietary in the Droid Ultra, it'll be identical in the Moto X. Sorry.

I was hoping for a cpu like the s4 or htc one or newer, jst hoping it'll be smooth fluid and fast, n google should also smooths their software in their upcoming update till it support dual cores n run fast on, like the way on apple n windows it doesn't need many cores to run fast.

for pure android a 1ghz single core works fine the reason flagships have quads is because of oem skins and carrier ui skins which slow the phone down. dualcore with an adreno 320 would work fine

I'll remain optimistic until the device is officially announced, but I'm starting to believe that even these rumored specs for the Moto X at a price of $200-$300 is too good to be true. I'd love to see
"industry leading" battery life on this device. Hell, I'd even settle for a 2,500mAh, but something tells me we won't be seeing that. Hoping I'm wrong here.

Look at the Motorola Razr M.
From GSMArena's Review "The smartphone managed an endurance rating of the almost unbelieavable 55h" on LTE no less.
And it only has a 2000 mAh battery.

Motorola knows what they are doing. Don't worry about battery life on the Moto X. It will easily last a day.

I hope it has removable battery and FM radio.

Don't bet on it having FM Radio. Google HATES FM Radio. So a Google owned company won't put it in.

Will the Verizon version have a locked boot loader and tons of Verizon craap apps?

If i remember correctly no, since its not even carrying the "Droid" name. Wasn't there an article on here about even excluding the verizon logo from the front or something?....i can't remember, but I'm almost certain we wont be seeing any bloatware or crap on this phone. Bootloaders another story, I know verizon is tight on that, but google is very lenient with it. I'm guessing since the GNex was easy to unlock the bootloader that this will be to.

Open mic or big brother listening and watching!

I want my phone to hear me talking about Orange Amps and as soon as I pick up the phone, I want that Orange Amplifier info on the screen!

Not really, I prefer tactile input over voice input. Big Brother would get pretty bored listening to me.

I'm probably going to end up purchasing this phone if the customization rumors are try. Ill still wait til the nexus 5 rumors start pouring in but so far it seems like a good replacement to my S3.

4th Q for UK Nnnnnnnoooooooo That has Always been the problem with Motorola they release 3 - 6 months after America, they NEED to launch within 1 month of America.

It's ridiculous that they don't launch within a month overseas. A month is a lot of time in the tech industry. That's a lost month of sales and word of mouth. Of course, that month only matters if the device is a good device (which I anticipate the Moto X to be).
