The rumoured Motorola Moto X is said to have a 1.7GHz dual-core processor and a 4.5 inch display on board.

The Verge reports, “The Verge can confirm several of the device's hardware specifications. A source who has used a CDMA variant of the phone firsthand tells us that it features a display in the vicinity of 4.5 inches, a dual-core 1.7GHz Snapdragon MSM8960T processor, 2GB of RAM, and a removable Kevlar rear shell. Some of these details were initially reported by @evleaks.”

It added, “Our source has also offered insight on what to expect from Moto X's software. As Android 4.3 has yet to ship, the smartphone currently runs a "near stock" version of Android 4.2.2. The "always-on" listening mode — which recognizes commands after a user says "OK Google Now" — must be enabled in settings; apparently the Moto X isn't passively listening by default. Additionally, device owners can train Moto X to better understand their voice, a detail first hinted at in a leaked carrier video. There's indeed a wrist flicking gesture that immediately opens up the camera app (another tidbit we learned from the Rogers video), and Motorola has included what our source refers to as an "Auto HDR" mode. And similar to Samsung's Galaxy S4, Moto X will also provide a summary of your notifications (and the current time) when you pick up the device after it's been idle for some time.”

In an update, it reports, “The documentation, which appears to be for the AT&T version of the Moto X, shows that the phone should contain a 2,200mAh battery.”

Motorola is said to lift the lid on the Moto X on the 1st of August. We’ll see by then if the rumours are true.
