Latest Moto X leaks provide more spec info, device photos, and camera app screenshotsAlex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
Motorola's Moto X was officially confirmed at the end of May, and since then the device has become one of the leakiest in recent memory. Now we've got another batch of leaked information and images to add to the pile, as the folks at Android Police have gotten hold of some photos of the AT&T Moto X in the wild, a list of the device's specs, and some screenshots of its camera interface.
The Moto X shown in these photos is carrying the model number "XT1058," which is the same identifier as the Motorola device that passed through the FCC in early May with AT&T-friendly LTE support. There's no AT&T branding to be found on the phone itself or in its status bar, but diving into the XT1058's "About phone" menu reveals that its system version contains a couple of references to "ATT." The same menu also shows that the device being tested is running Android 4.2.2.
On the spec side of things, this new report seems to back up many of the details that've popped up in the past. We're told to expect a 4.7-inch 1280x720 display that ends up being around 4.5 inches and 1184x720 after the Moto X's on-screen buttons are taken into account. Also included is a 1.7GHz dual-core MSM8960 Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 10.5-megapixel rear and 2.1 -megapixel front cameras, 2GB RAM, 16GB built-in storage (a 32GB model is also expected), NFC, and a 2,200mAh non-removable battery.
Wrapping up this latest bundle of leaks, Android Police has shared some screenshots that show the Moto X's camera interface. The camera relies on a lot of swipes and gestures, with users swiping to the right to access camera settings like flash and HDR, swiping left to access the gallery, and dragging a finger up or down to zoom in and out. Tapping on the screen will focus and then snap a photo, while tapping and holding will burst capture a number of shots. Finally, the double-twist-of-the-wrist gesture that we first saw in a leaked promo video is also present in this latest leak, giving users a way to open up the Moto X's camera app at any time.
While the Moto X has been official for almost two months now, we won't get our formal introduction to the device until August 1. It may seem like Motorola won't have much left to reveal considering how many different times and ways we've seen the Moto X leak recently, but it'll still be nice to have everything nice and official, especially when it comes to launch and pricing information.
