Google's Eric Schmidt photographed using Motorola Moto X
Oh hai, Motorola Moto X! After so many leaks, nothing gives us more confidence about your true existence than a high-res photograph of none other than Google chairman Eric Schmidt using it to make a phone call on July 10th, at the Allen and Company's 31st Annual Media and Technology Conference in Sun Valley, Idaho.

The few images right below come from a stock photography agency with actual description shedding all doubt - this indeed is the Moto X. The version you are seeing glued to Schmidt’s ear is a white one, and it’s clear that the handset will be offered in a variety of colors.

Comparing it to yesterday’s leak of the black Motorola Moto X we are happy to say that the material used on this white version looks very nice, with a dotted pattern on the back. It still looks like plastic, but could it be possible that you can customize it down to the pattern on the back?

We’ve seen the black version always leak out with a matte back, and it’s the first time we see such a high-res image of the white one, so we cannot be sure.

PhoneArena was first to break the news that the Motorola Moto X is expected to land on Verizon on August 23rd. This should mean we’ll get an official announcement very soon. Fingers crossed.

Dang, that actually looks really nice. Really thin too. I like the attention to customization too.

Please answer me, does it have a removable battery, microSD card slot, and an FM radio? If there's none, I'll pass.

It is easier to replace it...you can buy it anywhere for $30. pop it in right away and you're good to go..fones like iphone or htc one means more business for the carriers ...you have to pay like $100 to replace and you still have to deal with them...i don't know about you but i hate that and so a lot of people.

Most phones come with a warranty and manufacturers will cover you for a faulty battery regardless, and a lot of people on carriers pay for insurance. I cracked the display on my GS2, yeah I could have fixed it myself, but my insurance covered me and I got a new unit sent to me with overnight shipping at no cost, other than the monthly fee for insurance of course.

@ Daniel

If true, I doubt a phone this thin going to have removable battery.

From the looks of it no removable battery but SD for sure... Looks more HTC one but definitely nice look

It does look pretty swank. The x factor :P will be screen size for me. If it's less than 4.7", I'll wait for the Droid Ultra.

The phone is much thinner than i expected. I sure hope that thegydont sacrifice battery. My note 2 is the only phone that can keep up with me. Who cares about thinness when u tote a charger around with you. Who cares about features when tbe device dies?

That's cause Schmidt is using the smaller battery version, there will be a MAXX too.

I'm really digging the design. Looks like the HTC One, but the fact that the phone appears really think makes it a whole lot better. White model looks way better than the black one.

Not yet, at least. What's your fixation with Verizon though? It's a new Motorola. The Moto X is coming to 3 of the 4 major carriers, plus regional carriers.

I can't tell if it's just my crappy work laptop or maybe some artifact from the picture (maybe even just my eyesight), but in the closer up 2nd image does the back seem to have a faint criss-cross pattern of carbon fiber, or perhaps a texture for grip?

35. roldefol (Posts: 2859; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)


It's not just you. There's definitely a crosshatched grip pattern on the back. Nice catch.

August 23rd was the release date for the Moto X on Verizon's road map, and Verizon usually gets broadly available phones last (HTC One and Galaxy S4 for example), so late July might be an accurate launch date prediction. If not, it'll definitely be early August.

Also, from your profile, you have a Nexus 4. Why would you replace it with the Moto X? Just curious.

50. JojoGo101 (Posts: 211; Member since: 17 Dec 2012)


The design, it's gorgeous, The Nexus 4 FEELS good but it's design is uninspiring, I don't like that. Besides, the specs of the Moto X could better than the likes of the Nexus 4.

53. Berzerk000 (Posts: 3994; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)


I don't see why you would downgrade in terms of specifications just because of design. The Moto X's specs have been all but confirmed; it has a smaller screen than the Nexus 4 and essentially the same processor but uses the dual core variant of the S4 Pro instead of the quad core S4 Pro in the Nexus 4.

That's like the nexus 7 refresh, The K009 is unconfirmed and not accurate. I'll wait for official news first.

That's great design and it looks pretty good but i don't think so its a Moto X. If it's then it's lovely.
