More Motorola X chatter points towards Key Lime Pie debut

The Motorola X is slowly becoming more likely as new sources claim to reveal details about Google's next Nexus smartphone.

Ever since Google took over Motorola Mobility last year we've been waiting for the search giant to harness its new found handset division for a new Nexus device and, as rumours ramp up around the Motorola X, we may finally get our wish.

Initially a blurry press image and a set of specs hit the web via Dutch site Android World, but these were later dismissed after it was revealed the information was more fabricated than fact.

It doesn't stop there though, as Australian website AusDroid now claims to have gotten wind of the real specifications for the Motorola X from a "well placed individual".

The pie is almost ready

It's still up for debate just how "well placed" the source actually is, so we're taking the following details with the required dosage of salt.

Apparently the Motorola X will sport a 5-inch full HD display, although it could drop to 4.7-inches as there are apparent difficulties in sourcing the 5-inch choice.

Round the back you'll probably be greeted with a 10MP snapper - which is a departure from the 16MP lens which had been touted previously - plus there's an outside chance of what would be a market-leading 5MP front-facing camera.

We raised eyebrows at the suggestion the Motorola X would sport a dual-core processor, considering the Nexus 4 sports a punchy quad-core offering we'd find it odd if Google was to dial down the power.

It's currently thought that the Motorola X will be the first handset to carry Google's upcoming Key Lime Pie version of Android, and both the new device and OS could feature at the firm's I/O event in May.
