In the meantime, a cheeky pic of the Moto X has leaked across the cyberweb. It looks… fine, I guess; bit like a touchscreen rectangle with curved corners. What else?
The leaked Moto X shot was passed to the chaps at PhoneArena, and the phone is supposedly being tested on Sprint’s 4G LTE network under the codename Motorola XT1056.
The rumour mill can’t quite settle on a display size for the Moto X, and the latest leaksters say it’s around 4.5 or 4.6in, though they “haven't measured it exactly”. Absolutely brilliant.
We’re told, however, that the Moto X runs what’s currently the latest version of Android, namely Jelly Bean 4.2.2, with 16GB internal storage (DOA if there’s no microSD slot), and a removable battery.
Spec-wise, there’s nothing worth getting too excited about on the Moto X (the resolution is tipped to be 720p, incidentally, while the processor is dual-core), but the US manufacturer is reportedly more focused on features. We’re also promised a rugged beast of a phone, with super-sexy battery life.
Ah well, credit for thinking outside the box. There’s not exactly a shortage of massive 1080p quad-core phones at the moment.
