Motorola X-Phone rumors floating around again, sound iffy at best

Another day another rumor or leak regarding the Motorola X-Phone. To be perfectly honest all anyone has at this point are a few rumors that this device is coming, but absolutely zero proof. However, the leaks and 'confirmed details' keep floating in and hopefully all these rumors sink and are put to rest soon. The latest batch to make the rounds are iffy at best, and sound terribly inaccurate.

We've heard all sorts of rumors regarding the device being co-developed by Motorola and Google. Reports stating a 5-inch 1080p HD display have been around, and multiple comments also claim a smaller 4.7-inch screen instead. Who to believe? The leaked image and specs yesterday were quickly found to be fake, so at this point no one really knows.

Today reports from a 'well-placed individual' gave details to Ausdroid regarding the upcoming smartphone, and the specs leave a lot to be desired. They say the specs are "for real this time" but we have serious doubts and they should be taken with a grain of salt - a large dose of it too. It's safe to say this is most likely fake, otherwise there will be several unhappy fans out there.

Ausdroid reports that Motorola is still up in the air on the display size and haven't decided if they'll go 4.7 or full on 5-inches for the HD display. That being because they're having issues with supply on a 5-inch screen. If this is to be shown at Google IO in May, they better hurry and get it squared away. Then yesterdays report stated an NVIDIA quad-core Tegra 4i processor, but today we're hearing a dual-core. Yes we said dual-core. Eww!

This report claims a Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core will be powering the device, which seems highly unlikely on all accounts. I'm expecting to see the Snapdragon 600 or even the 800 quad-core in this phone. So yea, that could be depressing. The leak once again mentions a 5 megapixel front camera, which leads us to think Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie will focus heavy on Google Hangout video chats and Google+ integration, but it also claims a 10 megapixel rear camera - which is an odd camera resolution. Most are 8 or go right to 13 MP.

So for now things are basically nothing but rumors, and we'll continue taking them all with a grain of salt until further details are revealed.
