Motorola hints that the camera on the Motorola Moto X will have a fast shutter speed
Last week we broke the story about a leaked Verizon road map which revealed an August 23rd launch date for the Motorola Moto X. With slightly more than 5 weeks left until that date, a Rogers video leaked on on Sunday, showing the phone in action. Another video leaked on Sunday showing a CPU test for the Moto X, running on the AT&T network.

The leaks continued on Sunday with a tweet sent out from Motorola, showing a series of blurry pictures. The subject of the four pictures on the tweet is a precocious little kid and the caption reads, "Either this kid is really fast or today's phones are really slow." As we've been pointing out, the latest battlefield on today's smartphones is the camera. We've just seen Nokia introduce the top smartphone camera with the Nokia Lumia 1020, and Motorola's cameras have hardly been, well, snappy.

But that looks like it will change. The video from Canadian carrier Rogers about the Motorola Moto X that we showed you earlier Sunday revealed how the camera application opens on the device by twisting your hand back and forth. And based on the tweet, it seems that the camera on the Motorola Moto X is going to offer an extremely speedy shutter speed, fast enough to slow down and capture clearly on film a boy with a ton of Pixy Stix coursing through his veins. The most recent leaks call for a 10MP camera on the phone.
