Motorola’s Moto X phone swings by the FCC for US Cellular
The phone that seems like it will never be officially announced continues its FCC tour, this time with a new variant for another carrier. Hopefully this is a sign that an announcement is sooner rather than later.
The Moto X or the XFON depending on which name you prefer has been circulating in the rumor mill for a long time now, and it wasn’t long ago when the CEO of Motorola Dennis Woodside officially mentioned it for the first time. He said that people can expect the Moto X sometime this summer but nothing more specific than that.
Then, a few days ago Evleaks shared the possible specs for the device which weren’t exactly setting the world on fire. A 1.7 GHz dual-core processor along with 16GB storage, 2GB of RAM, 720p display, 10 megapixel rear camera, and 2 megapixel front facing camera. It is expected that the device launches at a low off-contract price and the specs definitely reflect this.
Now the latest news is that the phone has hit the FCC once again but this time in another variant for US Cellular which uses LTE band 12. Hopefully a sign that the device isn’t too far away from being officially revealed. The middle-end phone is expected to launch with Android version 4.2.2 and also have special features that aim to use the sensors to know when you’re about to take a picture or when the phone is in your pocket.
Until we hear more, the waiting game continues.
