Moto X seen handled by a Motorola exec (video), confirming leaks
posted by Chris P. / Jul 12, 2013, 8:36 AM
So, guess what? Turns out that while we were told that the event is not necessarily about the Moto X, it did have a top Motorola exec handling it, and luckily – somebody caught it on video.
Shot by famous blogger, Robert Scoble (through Glass!), the video was first made available on his Google+ page, and it didn't take long for some people to start noticing that throughout a performance by Daria Musk, a G+ musical sensation, a person later recognized as SVP of Product Management for Motorola Mobility is seen filming the action with what seems to be the Moto X. In fact, the slowed down version of the video below wraps up two important points:
1. As far as we can tell, the device looks exactly like the fully assembled black Moto X we saw a few days ago
2. According to the Verizon roadmap that leaked yesterday, the launch of the device on the carrier's network is in less than two months, meaning that any prototyping stages are likely over.
So what's next? We sit tight and wait. Just kidding, the comment section is at your raving convenience!
- Display 4.7" 720 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 10 MP / 2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, Dual-core, 1700 MHz

As far as I can tell, you are wrong. Those are two damn different phones. One is the international variant, one is the US version. Stop confusing them. Note the high precision of the speakers on the back left of the previous leaks and the larger holes on the back right of the recent leaks. Different variants of the phone. It will not be that cheap plastic fatty phone with two sim cards we've seen leaked this past week.

Upon a closer inspection, we agreed. Text has been edited. :)

That's a really creepy smile... Just saying. And with video capture now at 720p and even 1080p, viseos are still blurry and just a pain to watch. It looks like a different variant from what I've seen from the leaks.

Yeah, I was trying to give reason to giving up my HTC One for it, but the specs just don't add up for me.

but like seriously a dual core for a flagship -_- we were expecting a quad core snapdragon s800 at like 1.9 ghz full hd screen 17mp camera, like i bought a cheap phone i could justify using for 2 months for this. guess im sticking with it. and for experience; its not really even future resistant forget future proof like a dualcore is gonna lag in a couple months and the experience is gonna start lacking

First of all, this is not meant to be a "flagship" by any means. It's meant to be an affordable, customizable, ACCESSIBLE smartphone. Secondly, tell me how the Galaxy S3 lags all over the place. Spoiler alert: it doesn't.

This is definitely not a flagship. It was never meant to be. All the hype and rumors built it up to be that, but Motorola and Google have always been working on a mid range device. Also, this definitely is future proof. My Galaxy S3 is future proof, dual core Snapdragon S4 with 2 GB of RAM, and it is buttery smooth. This is even more future proof, having the S4 Pro with Adreno 320, it's going to be one of the smoothest Android experiences out there. Cores =/= performance. At this point, processor speeds are negligible from each other. What really matters is the GPU (but even that is becoming irrelevant), and the Adreno 320 in the S4 Pro is a beast.

Is it just me, or does this phone seem a bit like the DNA? Seems like the same design and material. From the back at least.
