Does anyone have a solid grasp on what to expect from Motorola’s X phone? If rumors have been accurate, we’re just a couple months away from the phone’s arrival, yet the proposed specs put forth thus far have been all over the park. Would it have a Tegra 4 chip and some very high-res cameras? What about a Snapdragon and some more conservative shooters? Would the hardware be customizable? While we wait for any kind of confirmation to support one of these theories, a new set of specs arrives, along with a possible render.
That’s the render up top, and we’ve got to say, it has us suspicious. For one thing, it doesn’t look very much like a Motorola smartphone at all, and just as a render in general, it’s not a very high-quality image. Something about the display also seems off, as if it’s too squat. While it’s difficult to assess without knowing precisely where the edges of the display lie, a preliminary assessment seems to support our impression that this is not a depiction of a 16:9 screen.
Specs accompanying the image describe the X phone as running a Snapdragon 800, featuring a 4.7-inch 720p display, and including a massive 4000mAh battery. We know Motorola has experience with phones sporting plus-sized batteries, but that screen info could be disappointing for users looking to see Motorola join the 1080p club.
The sources also mentions the possibility of waterproofing, Gorilla Glass protection, and the absence of microSD expansion. All things considered, it’s hard to see this as any more valid than the other rumored spec sets, so we remain in search of any kind of hard evidence.
