It was just yesterday that we spoke about Phone Arena’s tipster revealing potential specs of the unannounced Motorola X Phone, but now GSM Arena have been granted the same courtesy in the form of more specs and a fully realised render of the upcoming handset.
A tipster claiming to be close to the X Phone project sent in what appears to be an early render of a device featuring key elements from Motorola’s existing handsets such as their distinctive weather widget and edge-to-edge display design which we came to know on the RAZRi alongside what appears to be a metal frame on both the top and bottom ends of the phone.
The render looks like it could easily be created in software such as Photoshop and although we cannot unequivocally state that this is a forgery, its legitimacy should be taken with a healthy pinch of salt. If however this design is to be believed, the Motorola X Phone could be one good looking handset. When paired with the specs, that edge-to-edge display is said to be a 4.7-inch WXGA (768 x 1280) panel protected by Gorilla Glass 3 – contrary to the sapphire glass protect we were informed of yesterday.
Internally these new specs echo the sentiment of previous rumours with a Snapdragon 800 processor and a huge 4000mAh battery as well as taking the waterproofing rumour one stage further by stating that the X Phone, like the Sony Xperia Z, will be IP57 certified. Interestingly this latest rumour states that the X Phone will launch running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and not Key Lime Pie as we’d expect for a device on track to launch at Google I/O in May.
We’ll keep you updated as we build a picture of the secret Motorola project and try to discern which specs are worth holding onto and which are just hearsay.
