Latest Motorola X Phone Rumors Are Slightly Less Impressive


Yesterday, we heard some new rumors about Motorola’s so-called X phone, including a possible new name and a number of hardware specs. The source behind all that news was sketchy, at best, so we were left without the ability to put an abundance of faith in the claims. Today we get to hear some new details on the X phone, but this time the specs aren’t quite so ostentatious.

Instead of that quite high-end-sounding 16/5-megapixel main/front camera combo, this new rumor claims that the main camera would top out at 10 megapixels, though it does leave the door open for a very-high-res front-facer.

And rather than a Tegra 4i, this source claims that the X phone will run a Qualcomm chip, and only a dual-core SoC, at that. That sounds like an unusual choice for a high-end phone like the X has been made out to be, so we’re not quite sure what to think of this news. Perhaps it could use a new Snapdragon 400 as a cost-cutting move?

For the display, we’re back up to five inches after yesterday’s 4.7-inch rumor, though still in full HD 1080p territory, although the door is still open for the smaller screen if Motorola has trouble sourcing larger components.

Ultimately, we’re still unsure how accurate any of this might be, and that SoC news in particular is a little hard to swallow.
