Image of alleged Moto X front leaks

Motorola has announced several facts about its upcoming Moto X smartphone since May, including that it will likely launch in October and come with two processors, though the company has yet to officially release photos of the device. That hasn't stopped several leaks, however, and now the phone is more or less fully revealed.

An image provided to Android Police shows the front of the Moto X, which features an appearance reminiscent of LG's Nexus 4. The Android Police report notes the translucent background behind the soft keys at the bottom of the interface, possibly hinting at an impending change in Android 4.3, given that the Moto X could be using a stock version of the Android interface since Motorola is now a Google subsidiary.

Earlier this week, Google Chairman Eric Schmidt was photographed using the smartphone at an event, though a front angle of the device wasn't pictured. Schmidt's version of the phone featured a white case, one of the many covers expected to be available for the Moto X.

Motorola has yet to announce a press event formally revealing the phone, though one is expected to be scheduled in the coming months. At the event, Motorola is expected to announce that the Moto X will be sold by all four major U.S. wireless service providers

S4 front seriously... it doesn't even have hardware button >.>
Htc once back I can understand the way the camera and stuff is centered looks indeed familiar but the htc one it's back is more flat

S4 front and a HTC One back.

Well, at least they picked good phones to impersonate. I've never been a fan of Motorola's Droid line, but I think the Moto X looks pretty nice (and comfortable to hold).

True....but ALL iphones look the same, and pretty much all the windows phones look the same - so what if the device looks similar to others, the point of Android is that the INTERFACE can be customized to look like whatever you like (even a windows phone or iphone, i you really want). why would anyone want to make it look all funky?

I guess they should make them look like bananas; they'd be distinctive, ergonomic, and really quite a good endorsement of healthy eating...

that is just because samsung thought of the design ones and puts it out in every name category possible just in difference sizes. Since samsung dominates the market - here we go

I find it interesting how the front looks similar to a Nexus 4, but the back looks more 'stylish'. I hope its running stock Android. But from the rumors, I don't think it's gonna be a flagship device. Guess we will have to wait till they announce official specs. Maybe they will announce 2 versions, a regular edition, and then a Pro version that has beefier specs.

that actually looks quite attractive! That's coming from a Lumia 920 user. I wouldn't get one though. I do not want to support google's shenanigans.

What shenanigans? If you're referring to being forced to give the NSA information, EVERY company is under an obligation to do so, most likely including Nokia and don't forget Microsoft had already written a backdoor into Windows so you can pretty much guarantee there's one on your phone.

Well, good for you that Microsoft cares so much about your privacy. http://goo.gl/J8mwK

Probably just the contrast and the angle of the pic, but the second pic makes it look pretty damn slim/sleek.

Glad it has no front buttons. There are also rumors of what type of material you can choose to make it of. I think the rumors of being able to choose the specs are not going to be a reality. Which is fine...diff specs will make it harder to support.
