Motorola 'XT1056' said to be in testing on Sprint, appears to be running vanilla Android
While Motorola has officially acknowledged that the "Moto X" will be its next flagship device, we've yet to hear much in the way of official details from the manufacturer — and in the absence of any hard information, the rumors and leaks continue to flow. Today brings a fresh image of what might well be the front face of the device, sent to PhoneArena by an anonymous source. The phone appears to match the device sighted in Vietnam a few months back, and more recently in an AT&T-centric leak, hiding behind a dummy case.
The device, the site's source claims, is the Motorola XT1056, a device headed to Sprint's LTE network later this year. A device with a matching model number and all the requisite radio frequencies recently passed through the FCC, though there's no Sprint branding to be seen on the device itself. In fact, the phone appears to be running vanilla Android — or near-vanilla Android, as Moto's UI doesn't stray far from the base OS these days.
Purported spec leaks for the device have pointed to a 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and a 4.6-inch, 720p display — tying in nicely with Moto's goal of producing a high-quality yet competitively-priced mid-range device. Of course, in the absence of official confirmation, we'll have to take these Moto X leaks with a pinch of salt. We'll be watching closely as the Moto X launch approaches this fall.
