Moto X tipped for July 11 launch date

The Moto X Phone has been tipped for a July 11 launch date, according to one technology broadcaster.

Leo Laporte, an award-winning American tech broadcaster and author, has said he has been invited to a Motorola event on July 10 and 11.

Invited by a new Motorola employee called Guy Kawasaki, Laporte said what is being featured at the event is still being kept quiet, but will only be for selected tech journalists.

Rumours surrounding the long-awaited Moto X Phone from Motorola seem to be coming in thick and fast now, especially as the suggest launch day is now just under a week away.

With the Moto X the first significant launch since Google bought Motorola in 2011, many expect the smartphone to be rather special.

However, the latest leaks suggest it won’t be a powerhouse device in terms of specs, but rather focusing on new software technologies.

The Moto X ad campaign that launched this week just prior to the American Independence Day revealed that Motorola is marketing its upcoming Android device as the smartphone “you can design yourself.”

Although no further details have yet been revealed, it is expected that consumers will be able to design their own case, using something like a basic Google Nexus 4 as an outline.

“The first smartphone designed, engineered and assembled in the USA is coming,” reads the Moto X news sign up page. “It’s also the first smartphone that you can design yourself. Because today you should have the freedom to design the things in your life to be as unique as you are.”

Specs-wise the Moto X is tipped to pack a 4.7-inch 1280 x 768p resolution display, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU.

As for a Moto X release date, Motorola has only given the rather frustrating “coming soon”, but we expect that further details, including the device’s new software, will be revealed on July 11.
