Impressive new Motorola smartphone intercepted, but is it the X-Phone?

Impressive new Motorola smartphone intercepted, but is it the X-Phone?An as-yet-unannounced Motorola smartphone has been intercepted by the folks at Tinhte, and while the spec sheet makes for mostly impressive reading, it’s probably not the highly-anticipated Motorola X-Phone.

That is, we hope it’s not the Motorola X-Phone. See, this chap has a relatively modest (by today’s standards) 4.65in display with a resolution of 720p.

True, a 4.65in 720p display isn’t exactly terrible, but the Motorola X-Phone is said to be a “real game changer”, and is tipped to match rival handsets from Sony and HTC with a 5in full HD 1080p display.

Also, this unnamed chap has the codename XT912A, the original Motorola Droid Razr being the XT912. As such, it seems we're looking at some sort of Razr variant.

Other XT912A specs include 2GB of RAM, an Adreno 320 GPU, 2,000mAh battery and Snapdragon S4 Pro (“or higher”) processor.

On the design front, the XT912A looks remarkably like the Google Nexus 4, ‘cept with substantially less beef below the display.

And that’s all we have to go on at the moment. Given Motorola’s track record, it’s unlikely we’ll see the XT912A in the UK, but at least we’ll get the X-Phone. Er, probably.

"but the Motorola X-Phone is said to be a “real game changer”, and is tipped to match rival handsets from Sony and HTC with a 5in full HD 1080p display."

Perhaps its a game changer because it will actually fit in a pocket? (although at 4.65" even thats not a certainty)

True... But Google's Nexus phones pretty much stuck to the bigger = better silliness.

Where did you get the 4.65" screen size from, not watched the video but the comments on link suggest it's smaller. Pity the battery seems to be taking a back seat, unless there is a maxx version in the wings anyway

Good question, Pondillicus.

The Engadget article says 4in, but if you hit up this translation of the original source, it clearly states: "But what we have here is a phone with a screen about 4" 65 or the Nexus 4's screen size".

I initially started scribbling an article praising the XT912A for packing impressive specs into a pocket-friendly phone. Sonofa...

Pity the battery seems to be taking a back seat, unless there is a maxx version in the wings anyway which speaks against this being the X-phone, cause G-men repeatedly said it'll correct the poor battery performance of current smartphones.
