Mysterious Motorola phone leaks, probably not the 'X' Phone

A mysterious Motorola device has leaked onto the Internet today, and it looks quite unlike any of Motorola's previous handset endeavours. Motorola is rumoured to be planning an "X Phone", which will become the flagship Android phone. The leaked device comes with 2GB of RAM coupled with Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 CPU and an Adreno 320 GPU, powering a 4.65-inch, 320ppi, display. 

Vietnamese outlet, Tinh tế, have posted pictures and a hands-on video with the unnamed Motorola device and the source also states that this is likely not the X Phone we have been hearing so much about. The design of the phone belies Google's minimalistic influence, with a small, circular "M" on the back of the phone below the circular camera and flash holes. On the top of the device, there is a single 3.5mm headphone port. The sleep/wake button has been moved onto the side, à la the Samsung Galaxy SIII. There also appears to be an SD card slot on the left-hand side of the phone, something the Nexus 4 does not include. The bottom of the phone houses a single connection port. 

Motorola have also stripped away their own MOTOBLUR Android skin, in preference to Google's "Vanilla" experience. The only part of MOTOBLUR that remains in the clock widget, which includes the time, weather and battery status in small bubbles. The phone's performance seems to be what we expect from a Jelly Bean device, with no lag or stutter in the browser or scrolling around the app menu and homescreens. 

Patrick Pichette, Google's Chief Financial Officer and Senior Vice President, recently said that no Motorola products in their pipeline are "wow" by Google's standards. 

Tinh tế have posted an extensive online gallery of images, some of which can be found below.
