Google's Motorola Moto X to be revealed July 11th
The Motorola Moto X will not only be Google's first true 'Google phone' but it'll also be the first major smartphone since the search engine bought the smartphone company
Motorola has unveiled its first advert for the Motorola Moto X with both the advert and outside sources suggesting that Google's first own-brand smartphone will be getting unveiled next week.
According PhoneArena.com technology broadcaster Leo Laporte has said that he was invited by new Morotola employee Guy Kawasaki to one of their events on July 10th and 11th.
It’s unclear what exactly the event would be about however Kawasaki apparently emphasised that it was an event for selected tech journalists and that it was going to be something quite important.
This is after Motorola recently released their promotional ad featuring two people diving off a wooden dock, which according to an observant tech-reader might be representing the roman numerals XI meaning 11. At this point this is merely analytical speculation however the coincidental press event does highlight suspicion.
It is also possible that the event will reveal more details on the Motorola Droid RAZR Ultra devices that have been long in the pipeline however its likely that if rumours are true, the day will solely focus on the Moto X.
Despite previously reported leaks, the Moto X will not feature top of the line hardware but will got head-to-head with other mid market devices. It will have a Qualcomm MSM8960 Pro dual-core processor marked at 1.7GHz.
As far as software goes it will be running on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, the latest version of the operating system.
Leaked specifications have also suggested a 720p display with no word of screen size. The Moto X will pack a 10 megapixel camera on back along with a 2 megapixel on the front – reasonably stacking it against other current mid-range devices.
The phone is also said to carry 2GB of Ram and 16GB of internal storage.
Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside discussed the Moto X at an AllThingsD event in May, saying it would be made in an old Nokia factory outside Fort Worth, Texas, and will be very sensor-based.
“The new phone will know when you take it out of your pocket, for example,” said Woodside. “It anticipates my needs.”
