Motorola X specs leaks reveal a mid-range device disappointing some users who were hoping more from the first major phone released by Motorola Mobility since its acquisition by Google. Many users were hoping that the phone would be a Nexus device, perhaps even the Nexus 5 but that doesn’t seem to be the case as the LG Optimus G2 appears set to be the upcoming Nexus 5. The specs reported on the Motorola X by Android Central are as follows:

·         1.7GHz dual-core Snapgragon MSM8960DT

·         Adreno 320 GPU

·         2GB of RAM

·         16GB of internal storage

·         10MP ‘ClearPixel’ camera

·         720p display (possibly AMOLED)

The Motorla X release date is expected to be to be at the end of July, as per an ad that Motorola released on July 4th. Other features of the Motorola X are the always-on voice control features shown in the video, allowing the handset always being able to be given commands. It’s not clear if there is a way for the feature to be shut off or for the voice commands to differentiate between user commands and other people.

Another feature of the Motorola X is “Active Updates”. Which has on-screen notifications rather than the multicolor LED notifications most Android handsets have.

Some users have expressed concern about the impact on battery life of the Motorola X but CEO Dennis Woodside has promised that Motorola has found a way to make staggering improvements to battery life. It’s still not clear exactly how long we are talking but we would be interested to see what innovations Motorola has developed.
