The Moto X is powered by a dual-core 1.7GHz processor and runs the Android 4.4 KitKat operating system.

It has a 4.7-inch HD waterproof touchscreen made from toughened Gorilla glass, 10 megapixel camera with ‘Clear Pixel’ technology that it said captures the darkest scenes or stop motion blur in bright light, two-megapixel front camera, 2GB of RaM and 16GB or 32GB of internal memory.

The device also includes voice activation service Google Now, as well as the Motorola Connect extension for Google Chrome that lets users see and respond to notifications and text messages from their desktop.
