Motorola Mobility, a Google company, has officially unveiled its Moto X flagship smartphone. The handset fits among the larger high-end Android offerings, integrating a 4.7-inch display with 1280×720 resolution. Despite the company’s ownership, many of the X’s software features appear to stray from the core Android experience found on Nexus devices.

The company claims to have improved voice-recognition features, eliminating the need to press any buttons when performing functions such as checking weather or finding navigation directions. Notifications can also be viewed without any physical interaction, previewed on the 710 P AMOLED display rather than appearing first as a blinking LED.

The phone has a 2,200mAh battery with the promise of 24-hour battery life.

Inside the heart of the X8, there’s two dual-core 1.7GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro, a quad-core Adreno 320 GPU and two custom processors — one for natural language and the other for contextual computing.

The camera utility offers a quick-launch function via two twists of the wrist without needing to unlock the phone. Stills are shot using a 10-megapixel sensor, which is claimed to capture 75 percent more light than competing phone cameras.

Moto X marketing focuses heavily on customization, beginning at the factory. Buyers will be able to choose between different materials and finishes for the curved backside, along with unique facades and accents. The US-bound phones will be assembled in the US, though the company has yet to detail the extent of the domestic work.

Motorola Mobility is expecting to ship the X late this month or early in August, with $199 subsidized pricing from all major US carriers.
