After a tremendous build-up campaign, Motorola on Thursday finally unveiled the Moto X, one of the most anticipated handsets of the year.

As you expected, most of the rumors were right on the money, so it’s not likely that the phone will surprise you when it comes to specs and features.

The Moto X has already starred in a variety of leaks, and we have already seen alleged press shots of the device. Moreover, the Moto X has been spotted in the hands of various Google execs, with the most famous of them being Eric Schmidt who used a white Moto X during a meeting with journalists at a special event in California not too long ago.

The Moto X is a sleek device, which will feature a edge-to-edge display and a curved back. The handset is quite slim measuring in at only 129.3 x 65.3 x 5.6-10.4 mm and weighs 130g.

Judging the hardware of the handset by 2013 parameters, you’d think the handset is a mid-ranged device, although it’s clear that Google doesn’t see it that way.

That said, here’s what’s waiting for you under the hood:

  • 4.7-inch AMOLED display with 720p resolution
  • 1.7GHz dual-core Qualcomm S4 Pro processor and Adreno 320 GPU part of Motorola’s X8 Mobile Computing System which also includes one core for contextual computing processing and one core for natural language processing
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 16GB/32GB of internal memory and 2 years of 50GB of free Google Drive storage
  • no microSD support
  • 10.5-megapixel Clear Pixel camera
  • 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera
  • 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi with dual band antenna system
  • Bluetooth 4.0 LE
  • LTE
  • NFC
  • GPS, AGPS, aGPS, sGPS, eCompass, GLONASS
  • Android 4.2.2  Jelly Bean
  • 2200mAh non-removable battery (up to 24hours of battery life, up to 13 hours of talk time)
  • base colors: Woven Black or Woven White

The handset will be available from Google/Motorola in the following weeks, but also from a variety of carriers.
