After months of hype and speculation, we’re pleased to say that the Motorola Moto X is finally an official product. Motorola unveiled the device just hours ago and we now have a brief run-through of specs to give you, not to mention sharing an excellent video which touts the customization abilities of the device that Motorola are so excited about.
Aside from being heavily customizable, you’ll be relieved to hear that the Moto X is actually a very capable device in the specs department as well, standing on its own pretty well compared to some of the current juggernauts on the market at the moment. For example, the Moto X will be shipping with a 4.7-inch 720p AMOLED display along with a 1.7GHz dual-core Krait CPU which Motorola are marketing as the “Motorola X8 Mobile Computing System”.
There will be 2GB of RAM on board, as well as a 10 megapixel ‘ClearPixel’ camera with a 2GB front-facing camera. Storage options will either be 16GB or 32GB internal, but unfortunately no option to expand upon this with MicroSD card. Battery life should be decent with a 2,200mAh battery inside the Moto X, but most your immediate thoughts may be on just how customizable the Moto X really is.
To give you an idea of what you can do, Motorola has released a promo video, showing the aspects that are available for customization, using the Motomaker studio. Here’s an interesting little catch though – you’ll only be able to make use of these custom features by buying the device on AT&T only.
Verizon has said that they will be offering Motomaker eventually, but for now it remains on AT&T only at launch. Check out the video above and let us know if you are willing to spend $199 and open a new two year-contract with AT&T for one. Is the hype justified for the Moto X or have you been left disappointed?
