Moto X Launch Scheduled for August 1st

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.

"Yep. This guy is building exactly what you think he is. Designed by you. Assembled in the USA," Motorola tweeting, adding the following image:

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.

Stay tuned!
