New Moto X launch this week; leaked photos reveal possible features and hardware
While the company has yet to release an official statement or at least a preview, multiple sources have begun sharing photos of what is believed to be the new Moto X, which features a screen of either 5.2- or 5.5-inch size and more advanced hardware.
The photos can be traced back to the Facebook page,Perú Android. From the leaked images, we can glean that the new Moto X carries the previous model's aluminum frame and Kevlar coating, with a flash accompanying both the rear and front-facing cameras.
The back cover has a dimple that houses the Motorola logo while the front has slim bezels that are speculated to be of use for a fingerprint scanner.
Another set of photos reveal a white and gold color combination, which may be acquired through the Moto Maker customization tool.
If the leaked spec sheet from STJS is to be believed, we can expect the Moto X to feature a Quad HD AMOLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, 4GB RAM, and 32/64GB storage. It will also have 3020 mAh battery, 16mp rear camera, and 5mp front camera, with the device running on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.
In comparison, the Moto X 2nd generation initially ran on 4.4.4 Kitkat and has a 5.2-inch screen, Quad-core AMOLED display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB RAM, 13mp rear camera, and 2mp front camera.
There are also rumors that another Motorola X phone will be unveiled in the XGX event, basing on the event's name. It is currently being called the Moto X Sport, but no other data regarding its features and capabilities has surfaced.
The Moto X, which is expected to be released sometime in August or September, will be officially unveiled on Tuesday, July 28, along with a Moto G and possibly a new Droid Turbo, Tech Times says.
The XGX event will simultaneously take place in three cities-New York, Sao Paulo, and London-and will be accessible to everyone via livestream at 9A.M. Eastern Time.
