X Phone: Carbon, Saphire Glass and a Super Fast Processor

Loie Favre

The rumors have been a-flying regarding the notorious Motorola X phone and recent ones seem as far-fetched as the last. If these rumors be true, thanks to an anonymous tip-off, the awaited device could beat other high-end phones, like the Samsung Galaxy S4, right out of the ring.

What we know for sure is that the camera on the next Google device will be ''insanely great'', a comment made a few weeks ago by Vic Gundotra, Senior Vice President of Engineering at Google. There have also been recent allegations that the Motorola X will be customizable, allowing customers to choose the specifications. This idea was sparked from the Motorola advisor Guy Kawasaki's comments on his Google+ page about being able to personalize your smartphone like you can a Porsche.

Now we have this new information from an anonymous source who is making some very large claims. For one, he said that it will boast a 4.8'' screen made from sapphire glass, which he claims is three times harder than Gorilla Glass. The corners will be made of rubber bumpers and the back of carbon fiber. It will be powered by a quad-core 2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and a 4,000mAh battery for efficient, all-day-long longevity. Not only that, it will be water-resistant. The tip-off claims that this mind-blowing device will be made available in November.   

What do you think of the recent rumours? Do you think any of these are true?

    mock up? I don't think so.... looks like a HTC one pimped with Sony 's Android interface.

    Actually, the interface is stock Android. But Sony's skin is pretty stock-like.
