The Moto X has finally been revealed by Motorola, after weeks of rumours and leaks detailing every single part of the Moto X. Some were right, some were far off and some were completely false.
The Moto X specs sheet is remarkably similar to what we have already heard, a 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro, 2GB of RAM, quad-core GPU, one contextual computing core and one natural language core, 16 or 32GB of storage, 2200mAh battery and a 720p AMOLED display.
Customisation on the Moto X is not for any of the components, but will be on the design and Motorola says there is 504 possible choices to make. There will be seventeen different back colours, seven side button and rear camera colours and two front panel colours.
Motorola will be bringing Touchless Control, Active Display and Quick Capture to the Moto X, these three features are already available on the Droid smartphone line. The software on the Moto X is almost stock, but with a few Motorola iterations.
The big bummer is the price, with leaks stating it would be $199 – 299 off contract, Motorola surprised many when they put the phone at $199 on contract, the same price as the Galaxy S4, iPhone 5 and HTC One.
Motorola will not be bringing the Moto X to any countries outside the Americas. CEO Dennis Woodside did say there would be a cheaper version coming to Europe and Asia, but the customisations will stay inside the US.
