Motorola 'X Phone' pics and info leak

Motorola's upcoming flagship Android device, the 'X Phone', has been rumored quite heavily since we first heard of it last year; the device will be the first true product of the Google-Motorola buyout, and will go head to head with other high-end devices such as the Sony Xperia Z, HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4. Thanks to reliable phone leaker EvLeaks and some additional information from PhoneArena, we're getting a better picture of what the X Phone will be like.

Photos of the X Phone released by EvLeaks show a prototype device concealed within a non-disclosure case, which PhoneArena has "confirmation" are "the real deal". The pictures of the front clearly show the device running stock Android, which isn't surprising since Google now own Motorola, however the M logo above the display will likely not feature on the final device, according to PhoneArena's sources.

The back of the device is also pictured, however it's believed that this isn't the non-disclosure case, rather the polycarbonate back panel of the actual X Phone. It appears Motorola isn't using their signature Kevlar backing for this device, nor metal, although unfortunately the photos don't reveal much else about the X Phone's construction.

The rumored specs for the X Phone include a 1080p display (although this prototype is said to be using a 720p panel), 32 GB of storage and 2 GB of RAM. Previous rumors have indicated the phone's display size may come in at 4.7-inches, and processor-wise we could be seeing one of NVIDIA's new Tegra 4 chips inside, although it wouldn't surprise us if Qualcomm turned out to be the chip of choice going by past Motorola phones.

Other information about the X Phone includes a choice of 20 colors for the device, and its reportedly "confirmed" for release on both Verizon and AT&T in the United States, although all major carriers will be supported. The X Phone is apparently scheduled for a release in early July, so it shouldn't be too long until we see this device in the flesh.

Wasn't the X phone supposed to be able to be customized? 20 colors isn't my idea of customization. I want at least different CPU/screen/microsd/storage/battery choices. Keep the size of the phone the same but all the internals should be capable of being changed.

While I love the idea and im sure plenty of "techies" would, its prob not in the companies best interest to do an a la cart version of a phone. Its easier for companies to just release their flagship and a bunch of mid-level phones.

The pictures of the front clearly show the device running stock Android, which isn't surprising since Google now own Motorola, however the M logo above the display will likely not feature on the final device, according to PhoneArena's sources.

I wonder what the difference between this and the Nexus line of devices are going to be then

Maybe Google is going to replace it entirely with Motorola phones.

I really hope that's a camouflage case. Motos are great phones but they all look butt ugly (to me at least).

I also wonder how this is different from other phones. It's probably the new Nexus, but didn't they talk about trying something new with the X? Well, why not - Google's still missing 12 billion from buying Moto.

Yeah, the cover is ugly, might be better looking without it. But nothing spectacular or which would impress by its looks.

Plus it would run android; which is shame
