Motorola Moto X mid-range smartphone hits the market


It’s not the easiest time to be a smartphone maker at the moment, but you’d think if any brand could get a decent model over the line with the latest Android operating system, it’d be Motorola. With that in mind, the company has launched the Motorola Moto X.

There’s a good list of inclusions here that should gain some attention, such as a 1.7GHz Qualcomm MSM8960Pro dual-core Snapdragon chip and a 4.7-inch panel with 720 x 1280-pixel resolution built from AMOLED screen tech.

The Snapdragon CPU is accompanied by a memory cache of 2 GB, while gaming on that 4.7-inch display is powered by a Adreno 320 graphics core.

There’s 16/32 GB of built-in flash for storage inside the Motorola Moto X but there’s no external storage options available. The internal storage is preloaded with Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean), although it is surprising that given what you’d have to think would be be good access to Android code, it doesn’t come with the latest Android 4.3 release. Still, this is a mid-range phone so maybe it’s not so surprising it comes with the previous-generation OS.

As for power, you’ll see around 13 hours talk time and up to 576 hours in standby mode through its 2200mAh Li-Ion battery.

Network connectivity comes in the form of 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac-standard Wi-Fi and if you need personal communications, the Moto X comes with Bluetooth v4.0 with A2DP. Multi-network support over 2G is handled through the device’s 850 900/1800/1900 MHz band coverage while for 3G/4G networks, it’s HSDPA and LTE ready.

The main image sensor on the back of the phone is a 10MP autofocus type with LED flash, while you get a more basic 2 MP unit on the front for video calls. You can also capture video with the Moto X at up to 1080p@30fps.

The phone’s weight tips the scales at 130 grams while its dimensions are 129.3 x 65.3 x 10.4 mm. The unit was announced and launched in August 2013.
