White Moto X press shots and new specs join the leak party


The Moto X leak party is getting pretty out of hand, I have no idea how the neighbors haven’t called the cops on these hooligans yet.

Today we have press shots much like yesterdays, but this time featuring the white version of the Moto X. It’s beginning to seem a bit curious that despite the persistent customization rumors that we only seem to get official images and ads displaying the phone in a fairly standard black or white.

I’m glad to see it’s not the two tone white back with black front that we saw on the Nexus 4 as this would lend credence to the customization of the phone being the full body rather than a change of back plate as some have suggested.

The fairly mid-range spec sheet has been detailed by us previously and I’ll give the full rundown again below, but one new addition is that the battery was identified as being 2200 mAh and non-removable thanks to the FCC filings. Considering the juice sipping S4 that it is being paired with that should yield solid battery life, however there are plenty of people that hate the inability to swap batteries as needed. An Android Police tipster sent them pictures of an AT&T branded version which should come as little surprise considering the money that is being put into the Moto X campaign this thing better be going everywhere.

  • Dual-Core 1.7GHz Qualcomm S4 with Adreno 320
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 720p screen at 4.7 inches
  • 10MP rear camera and 2MP front-facing
  • 16GB of storage
  • No external storage option
  • 2200 mAh non-removable battery
  • Android 4.2.2
  • 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac WiFi
  • NFC

Despite the endless string of rumors and leaks, Leo Laporte (after attending the private Motorola event at the Googleplex last week) reported that there is still more to discover about the Moto X. The video below is from the latest episode of This Week in Google and while he can’t reveal any new details you can hear this claim from him right when the video starts.

What secrets do you think Motorola could still have up their sleeves for the August 1 announcement?

    I feel like just about everything has leaked and there really isn’t much guessing left except for maybe price. Will be excited to see what all they announce to try and sell it to the masses, without it being all about a spec war.

    • Jeremy Sheehan

      that is the big speculation at this point. Price. The specs are a little weak, but I’m sure that’s part of the strategy. Google likes to shake things up and this thing will make waves if it’s priced cheap enough to buy outright.

    Woah, so many leaks this reminds of the hype around the Nexus 4. I like a little bit of mystery before a product is announced.

    Either way, I am super excited to see what the software side of this is like.

    Whine: I really hope they change that background if its a promotion, it makes it really hard to see the icon and typography of the OS, even though its similar to stock Android.

    My dream come true…White on white. I’m sold as long as it is no more than $299. I might have to sell my iPhone 4 to recoup some of the damage from this purchase.

    Will this phone be NSA free…:-)

  • renyo

    Can’t wait to see what the metal body type looks like! Ooh and the curved design is amazing… I just hope its thin as hell around the side edges…

  • donger

    White is so nice.

  • Tico4674

    Nice little phone but I wouldn’t downgrade to it, nor would I recommend it to anyone.

  • mattcoz

    Now it’s 4.7? Ugh… and I was looking forward to this.

  • cb2000a

    The future of phones for most of us are mid range phones with great specs and a price tag (with no contract) of under $300. Contract post paid will become less and less used. It will happen soon.

    S4 has a 2600mAh battery i thought. The s3 has 2100mAh (4.8″) so 2200mAh should be reasonable especially with a more up to date chipset plus 0.1″ smaller screen. But then again Motorola screens haven’t always been the most power efficient.

  • Nate B.

    I have to say the device is handsome in my opinion. Not the loudest thing when it comes to specs, but I don’t think that’s their focus here. Maybe the unique customization and user experience is their focus. You don’t need bleeding edge specs to pull that off. I think they have bigger plans down the road as well.

    16GB and no sd option and a non-removeable battery? Sad panda is sad
