The Moto X2 specifications were leaked by a Brazilian retail site earlier this week.
The seller, Livraria Logos posted up a working page for the new Motorola flagship handset alongside a spec list. The page was taken down, but not before a few other sites reported on the information.
According to the post, the device will feature a 2.26GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chip, 2GB RAM, a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a 12-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front shooter, 32GB storage, microSD, a 2900mAh battery, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC. It will also come with Android 4.4.4 out of the box.
While this is not an official confirmation on the specs, this same retailer was correct in its early post for the Moto E smartphone that is posted earlier this year before the devices release.
The Moto X2 was recently spotted in a video that was posted by TK Tech news and features a device covered in layers of plastic to hide any identifying marks. The site claims this is a Verizon test version of the new Moto X since it features some of the carrier's bloatware.
The video also reveals that the new model will feature a 1080p display and thinner bezel. It is currently rumored to be called the Moto X+1.
The new model was also seen in Motorola's Moto Maker by a German mobile blog known as MobiFlip. Motorola removed the listing, however, the blog was able to capture a screenshot of it before that happened.
Another report pointed to the Moto X2 release date being in the summer 2014 as Motorola hinted at this during this year's Mobile World Congress at a Q&A session. They said "the next version of Moto X" will arrive sometime in "late summer." Motorola also plans to expand availability of its current smartphone lineup and the Moto Maker tool for its customers. Motorola will bring it to Europe and Mexico.
The company also plans to stick with Android as its primary OS. It also confirmed that the original Moto X will be released in India and Australia during the next few weeks.
