Is this the Motorola Moto X?

Motorola’s next flagship smartphone will be the Moto X and it’ll be available sometime this summer. This was confirmed by Dennis Woodside, Motorola’s CEO, a few weeks ago.

Specs about this device have been rampant on the web for months (see here and here) and will apparently have a display between 4.5 and 4.7-inches, 2 GB of RAM, 16GB internal memory, running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, plus come with some sort of unique technology that’ll set it apart from all the other high-end smartphones. Woodside stated that “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.”

A new leak has appeared online that apparently shows the upcoming Moto X. PhoneArena declared that the mysterious picture above is the Moto X – model number Motorola XT1056 – and is currently in lab testing on Sprint’s 4G LTE network. There’s no other details, apart from a potential August 1st launch date.

    The device looks nice, but I’m skeptical of the whole phone knowing when its in your pocket or your hand or when you want to take a photo. Unless these features are completely unobtrusive and given that they will be accurate and able to predict your needs (which I’m especially skeptical of), I could see wanting to be able to turn at least some of them off. I hope that they make these features optional just in case some find that they get in the way more than they help. It will be interesting to see what actually comes in the final package.

      All that stuff sounds like Google is trying to mimic Samsung and Touchwiz.

      I turn off most of the “smart” features on my S3 because they rarely work.

    Would never ever ever by a Motorola again after my Atrix fiasco !!

  • Sam Wiggans

    Looks basically like stock android

    So the camera will automatically come on every time I see a good looking woman?

      It is confirmed, during the setup, you need to provide the threshold for what you consider beautiful, from ugly Betty to Victoria Secret’s girls.

      I thought this is fitting…

      1: “Whoose motorcycle is this?”
      2: “It’s a chopper babe.”
      1: “Whoose chopper is this?”
      2: “It’s Zed’s…”
      1: “Who is Zed?”
      2: “Zed is dead, baby. Zed is dead.”

      Sorry, couldn’t resist; that was from Pulp Fiction. Watching that movie made me diskile this pseudonym, just not enough to think of something else instead.

      That’s one of the main reasons people buy google glass for.

      The future is bring upon us.

    One thing I notice is that this device looks ugly in the photo..

  • JungleBoogie

    I really hope that’s not it. It looks the same as my Galaxy S2.

    • Garrett Cooper

      Looks nothing like an s2. Maybe an s4.

  • Nathaniel James

    The question is, will it receive software updates or be left in the dust like the other motorola devices

    Never buy a Motorola, especially on contract. My atrix 4G is garage after 2 and 1/2 years: volume buttons don’t work, overheats, camera doesn’t work, wifi is broken and it shuts down every ten minutes. I am running stock 2.3.6 because i am scared of breaking it even more-i don’t want to “hack” it as i am on contract. I am getting a new phone soon, most likely the s4 or the nexus 4 directly from Google.

    3000+mah battery or gtfo

    If it’s a dualcore, it’d be a fail.

    inb4 “omgz no one needs a quadcore in their phonezz!”

    Designed like the galaxy nexus and nexus 4 as much as I love nexus this design is getting boring. Yawn
