A new tweet posted by a Twitter account known to leak information about upcoming mobile devices before their launch reveals certain specs of the already confirmed Moto X phone.
The handset was the star of a variety of rumors that hit the web before and after Google I/O. However, Motorola only acknowledged its existence a few weeks ago, during the D11 conference, although the company is yet to actually show us how the handset look like.
Now, @evleaks, a source of plenty of leaks in the past, claims that the handset will pack a 720p touchscreen display, 1.7GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor (MSM8960), 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, 10-megapixel camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera and Android 4.2.2 Jelly bean under the hood.

Motorola did say during the conference that the Moto X will be a handset meant to compete directly against the iPhone and top Galaxy devices, but these rumored specs – some of them matching previous reports on the matter – suggest that the handset would be a mid-range device by 2013 standards.
That said, we’re very interested to see what the Moto X will have to offer, particularly considering its contextual awareness smart features that Motorola talked about during the D11 show.
Naturally, while @evleaks has been accurate in the past, it’ll be a while until these specs can be confirmed, so make sure you hang on to that grain of salt.
Would such a Moto X handset satisfy your needs, or will you go for a higher-end device instead?
