Motorola X Phone leaked specs point to Sapphire Glass screen

The latest Motorola could come out swinging with a 2GHz Snapdragon 800 processor and 4000mAh battery. But is it too good to be true?

Motorola may be making a serious play for the crown of smartphones if leaked specs are true. The Google owned mobile manufacturer is rumoured to be unveiling its X Phone in November this year and it could come packing some serious power.

According to a PhoneArena source the X Phone will arrive with a 2GHz Snapdragon 800 processor (the one that can play 4K video), a huge 4000mAh battery, and a Sapphire Glass screen that’s three times stronger than Gorilla Glass. Nice touches like rubber corners, water resistance and a carbon fibre back all sound appealing. But is it too good to be true?

Other rumours suggest a customisible device that users can tweek before they buy, much like a new car. Motorola advisor Guy Kawasaki supported this rumour on his G+ page by referring to a customisable Porsche car – “Wouldn’t it be great if you could personalise your phone like this?”. Sit tight for more details as they appear.
