The Moto X has attracted a fair bit of attention in the past few days and it doesn’t look like the hype train will be stopped. The founder and former owner of Android and me, Taylor Wimberley, has already leaked some information about the Moto X and now he’s got some more information.

According to Wimberley, the Moto X will have a Dual LTE Multiple-Input and Multiple-Output (MIMO) antennas. What this means is that data speeds will be seriously fast on the Moto X. While MIMO technology is more commonly associated with high-speed Wi-Fi it can also be used with the HSPA and LTE standards.

The dual LTE MIMO antennas should bring faster data speeds, as both antennas can deliver and recieve data packets.

The Moto X will have two antennas which are capable of taking in data at the same time and putting it out using the antennas at the same time. This means that download and upload speeds will be much faster on the Moto X, as both antennas can deliver and receive data packets.

Wimberley has already leaked accurate Moto X related information before, and while he has been correct about contextual awareness and customization, nothing is official just yet so we advise you to take this with a grain of salt.

While the Moto X’s rumored specs don’t appear to compete with other high-end smartphone specifications, the smartphone should have a feature set and a price which could interest people who don’t need the latest and greatest specifications. Whether Android users will be interested in this is another matter.

Based on the rumored specifications will you be picking up the Moto X?
