Moto X specs press shots and benchmarks leak

first_imgThe Moto X has been spoken about in hushed tones of quiet reverence for many months now, but the first Google-blessed smartphone from Motorola is rumored to arrive next month. As is common with a high-profile release, the leaks have started to pile up. Not only have full press images shown up, but specs and benchmark scores are in the wild.The Moto X is not going to be a completely maxed out smartphone — it’s perhaps a little on the modest side, but still a premium-feeling device. The phone is rumored to come in various colors, but so far the black and white have leaked, and they seem nice. Happily, the white phone is white on the front and  back — not one of those Oreo cookie deals like the white Nexus 4.Specs have shown up listing a dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro with Adreno 320 graphics, 2GB of RAM, a 720p screen at 4.7 inches, 10MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 16GB of storage (no microSD card), 2200 mAh non-removable battery, 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac WiFi, NFC, and Android 4.2.2. So, it’s not packing a new Snapdragon 600, but that might not matter.According to benchmarks from the AT&T version of the Moto X (codenamed Ghost), the device’s dual-core Snapdragon can hold its own. In the AnTuTu overall system bench, the Moto X scores a little faster than quad-core Snapdragon S4 phones, and almost as fast as Snapdragon 600 devices. The 3DMark graphics test was also a win for the Moto X, which bested even the HTC One with it’s faster ARM chip. Although, both chips actually have the same GPU — the Adreno 320.Google is reportedly planning to spend $500 million marketing the Moto X, so get ready to see a lot of it. The Moto X announcement is scheduled for August 1st in New York.last_img
