How long has it been since the patriot in you looked out upon the horizon, hoping for a Made in USA smartphone to roll off production lines somewhere in the land of the free and home of the brave? The recent confirmation of the Motorola X (with plenty of rumors preceding the official announcement of its existence, of course) would certainly have lit up your face, and it seems that the Motorola X (also known as the Motorola XT1056) has been tested on Sprint’s LTE network.
Samsung might have made their Galaxy S4 LTE-A official, but high end smartphones are not the only devices out there that warrant our attention. From what one can tell in the image above courtesy of Phone Arena, the Motorola X phone has been tested for Sprint's LTE network.
Official FCC documents of the Motorola X smartphone have already indicated that it will be headed to Sprint, which is in tandem with other filings of the device, too. While there is no concrete confirmation on the screen size of the Motorola X, we are looking at something which is nestled between 4.5” to 4.7”, still making it larger compared to the iPhone 5, although it would pale in comparison to the newer devices such as the Xperia Z and Xperia Z Ultra.
The latest whispers point to an August 1st release of the Motorola X phone, where there should be a 1.7GHz Snapdragon chipset running proceedings from underneath the hood in addition to 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal memory. Apart from that, it should arrive with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean right out of the box, which means there is no need to wait for a software update unlike other devices.
