Motorola keeps on teasing Moto X: coming August 1st

The Motorola Moto X is coming on August 1st and as hype builds up about the first Moto phone made under Google leadership, Motorola is teasing the announcement once again. It’s the start of the week and Moto wants to prepare us for the huge event on Thursday, August 1st.

With this latest teaser however, Motorola brings nothing new about the Moto X.

By now, we have a pretty good picture of the Motorola Moto X, all drawn from rumors. Specs like the screen (4.7” 720p) look mid-range by today’s standards, but it is the secret sauce under the hood that make the Moto X tick. Plus, the device is expected to arrive carrying an extremely low price, even lower than the Nexus 4.

Under the hood, the Moto X is expected to come with the same X8 chip with a dedicated natural language processing (NLP) core that listens to you at all times with the ‘Open Mic’ function. A better camera is also coming up with a 10-megapixel ‘Clear Pixel’ shooter expected.

Make sure to take a look at our round-up of all we know about the Moto X.

We will be covering the August 1st Moto X event live as it happens of course and expect to see hands on coverage as well.

do you know your problems are Motorola? 1. You create your own processor, and it even not trying to be the best proccessor. 2. Your flagship have Dual Core processor and even not Full HD. At least please try to give the same specs as other flagships (And I don't talk about WP8 or BB or iOS flagships...) 3. Your camera is 10MP camera, while the others flagships have 13MP (at least ;)). We know that 13MP or 10MP doesn't change, but why not 13MP misers!

processor isn't everything. at times it is the GPU that would bottleneck the performance, thats why i'm pretty happy with the quad core GPU they're putting in X8

Google wants to make the most accessible yet best valued product. In order to do that, you don't make a superphone that costs $700. Even then, when most people ask for a superphone, those people do not put the money where their mouth is, and do not purchase it anyways. For what is assumed to be ~$300, this smartphone would give good value. Also, unlike OEMs, Google is software-specialized, so you can expect great software optimization that you won't find with the other manufacturers' offerings.

Having the HTC One is enough ... As an Apple fanboy it's the only android phone that really attracts me though Apple made me stick to the iPhone because of its great battery life and iOS 7

The rumor is that it will be sold at $300 off contract (probably from Google Play), and it will definitely support AT&T's 3G/HSPA+ since it's GSM, and if the new Nexus 7 is anything to base this off of it will support T-Mobile, Verizon, and AT&T's LTE networks unlocked as well.

So who would be dissapointed if it were to actually come with a 1080p display? I'm just waiting for tablets, laptops, & computer screens to come in 4K.

Well to me the message in the black teaser pic is obviously hinting on the image-noise phone cams have, and the MotoX will not thanks to clear pixel. I dont see any other reason for them not to make the image just plain black unless they are hinting specifically at 'imageNoise'.
