It appears that most of the rumors were dead on, so the official specs of Moto X below may not exactly give you an adrenaline rush.

The device has been seen in the hands of a number of Motorola executives, including Google’s very own Eric Schmidt. We saw him using a white Moto X a few weeks back during a talk with the journalists.

The device seems more mid-range as previously speculated. It will feature a 4.7 inch AMOLED display sporting a 720p resolution. Moto X is powered by Snapdragon S7 Pro processor, Adreno 320 graphical processing unit (GPU) and 2 GB RAM. On the storage side, the phone comes with 16GB and 32GB storage space options, with free 50GB Google Drive storage for 2 years.Screen Shot 2013-08-02 at 9.16.55 AM

However, there is no microSD card slot but that shouldn’t be a big issue with the 50GB Google Drive storage included for 2 years. The phone has a 10.5-megapixel back-snapper with a 2.1-megapixel front camera, 2,200 mAh battery with Android 4.2.2 Jelly running on top of it.

On the connectivity side, the phone features 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi with dual band, LTE, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS. It will be available made in two different colors: Woven Black and Woven White.

A 16 GB Moto X will go for $199 with a 2-year contract. The 32 GB version is not yet available on all the carriers; however, AT&T is offering 32 GB Moto X for $249.99, again with a 2-year contract. Sprint is also offering the 16 GB variant for $199 and 32GB version will not offered at this time. And most likely for a quite similar price, it’ll be available on US Cellular as well. There’s no word from Verizon about the pricing.

It is expected that the devices will hit the shelves by the end of this month. Are you excited? Was Moto X over-hyped? Share your views.
