Motorola X linked with 2GHz Snapdragon 800 processor and 4000mAh battery

The Motorola X, according to one anonymous tipster, will feature a 4.8-inch display, a 2GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, and a massive 4000mAh battery cell. 

The Motorola X is also believed to feature a display constructed from Sapphire Glass, which reports suggest is around three times stronger than Gorilla Glass.

The Motorola X’s chassis, according to Phone Arena, will feature rubberised corners and a carbon fibre back panel. After the awesome but extremely fragile Nexus 4, Google will naturally want to make the X as durable as possible.

Under the hood will be a quad-core 2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and a 4,000mAh battery to provide all-day power, reports Phone Arena. The device will be water resistant and will launch in November, in time for the holidays.

It’s worth taking all of the above with a pinch of salt, of course. Know Your Mobile could not verify any of the source’s claims – Google and Motorola do not comment on rumour or speculation.

Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 is confirmed for release in the second half of 2013. And we’re doubly excited by the prospect of such a huge battery cell which would no doubt deliver previously unseen levels of longevity. In this respect the rumoured specs are well within the realms of plausibility. And the addition of a battery of that size would be a huge USP for the handset. 

Case in point: the Motorola Razr MAXX’s setup is a 3300mAh cell and it's the current market leader by a country mile. If Google did stick a 4,000mAh cell inside the Motorola X, as the source suggests, then we could be looking at a new standard for the entire mobile space.

Android Key Lime Pie, tipped to launch at Google I/O 2013 in May, is also likely to be put to use inside the Motorola X. Couple that with a 2GHz Snapdragon 800 chipset, LTE-support, and all day battery life and you’ve got the closet thing to a perfect smartphone we’ve heard of. 


So hurry up and make it, Google.
