Moto X Launch Scheduled for August 1st
Moto X will debut in just a couple of weeks.
Earlier this week, a leaked video from Canadian wireless carrier Rogers Wireless revealed that the new Moto X would be launching in August. Unfortunately, the video didn't provide a specific release date for us. The good news is that we may not have long to wait for that information.
AllThingsD reports that invitations for the Moto X launch event went out this morning. The event itself will be held in New York City and is set to take place on August 1. The invitations follow a tweet from Motorola that revealed the phone would be built in the United States. What's more, it contained a cryptic clue that customers would be able to customize their own handsets.
Other than the fact that it's being made in the USA, we don't know a lot about the phone. This week's video from Rogers mentioned Rogers' LTE network, which means the Moto X will indeed have support for 4G LTE. Other rumored specifications (though still unconfirmed and not included in the video), are a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core 28 nm SoC clocked at 1.7 GHz (MSM8960 Pro), 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, a 2MP camera on the front, a 10MP camera on the back, and Google's Android 4.2.2 "Jelly Bean" OS.
