Although many of us knew what Motorola was preparing with its new device, it has finally revealed its Moto X mobile phone to the masses.
Senior vice president of product management and engineer at Motorola Rick Osterloh unveiled the handset that he and his team have been working on, in New York City.
The "made for you" handset has been completely made on US shores and will feature touchless control via Google Now and miracast wireless display capabilities. It also comes with a QuickCapture feature which enables users to go from "pocket to pictures in two seconds."
Official specifications reveal that the smartphone will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 running a 1.7GHz dual-core processor, Adreno 320 graphics, ten-megapixel camera and two-megapixel shooter on the front, although it has no memory card. It is all powered by a 2,200mAh battery which allows the device to last for 24 hours of mixed use.
Although the firm announced its US carrier plans the rest of the world are left with this statement from Motorola:
"Europe remains an important market for us and we have exciting plans in the works. Although we can't reveal specifics right now, this is just the start."
