The Moto X leaks just keep coming, and with a few short weeks left before Motorola’s big reveal we’ve learned that the upcoming handset will sell at the same price points as the Nexus 4. The 16GB Moto X will cost $299 off-contract, while the 32GB model will cost $349, Electronista reports, citing “a leak out of China.”
With the price allegedly locked up, photos of the Moto X leaking on a daily basis and a full specs sheet available as well, the only remaining question is how Motorola will sell its new smartphone. Speculation is high over whether the handset will be available through the Google Play Store, where Nexus devices have been sold in the past at a rapid pace. The Moto X isn’t strictly a Nexus-branded device, but considering that Motorola is now a Google company it would be a logical move to launch the phone via its online store.
The Moto X is expected to offer mid-range specs, Google-driven features and a customizable design. The handset will likely come equipped with a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 2GB of RAM, a 4.5-inch 720p display. We won’t know anything until Motorola makes an official announcement though. TechnoBuffalo will be attending the Aug. 1 press event and reporting live.
