Motorola’s X phone has been the subject of many rumors so far, but we’ve heard quite little about the hardware itself; sure, there’s been some general talk about materials or even a really high-end camera, but little in the way of hard specs. Today we get a breakdown of just what kind of silicon the phone could be packing, as well as learn a little more about its name.
The image above is apparently not any sort of official render, but the name itself is interesting. Could the X phone be slated to arrive as the Motorola nXt? Will it remain the X and that “nXt” could be part of the promotional campaign planned for phone? Could there be a whole series of X-devices on the horizon? For now, it’s just one more piece of the X phone mystery.
As for those specs, supposedly the X phone would use a smaller 4.7-inch 1080p screen, like the one on the HTC One, instead of a five-inch component. Those rumors about a great camera could be accurate, with this source claiming the phone to have a 16-megapixel main camera with five-megapixel front-facer. The handset would reportedly run an NVIDIA Tegra 4i chip, which only offers A9 cores, but includes an integrated LTE radio. The phone would measure just under eight millimeters thick.
We’re not sure how much faith to place in these claims, and by the sound of things neither is the team over at Android World, which first received this anonymous info. As such, we wouldn’t get too attached to any of this, and will see how it matches up with any future leaks.
Update: To add to the cause for concern over this info’s accuracy, the Tegra 4i doesn’t support CDMA networks, making it an unusual choice for a Motorola smartphone.
