Motorola Moto X poses for yet another press shot, this time in white
Early Saturday, we showed you a leaked press render of the Motorola Moto X in black. Later in the day, a picture of the phone's side profile was outed thanks to another tweet from evleaks. As the calendar flipped over to Sunday, yet another tweet from the serial leaker revealed another press render of the customizable handset, this time done up in white.

If the white covered Motorola Moto X looks familiar, it is the color of the Moto X used by Google CEO Eric Schmidt at the Allen & Co. Media and Tech conference. If you're the chairman of the company that owns Motorola, getting a Moto X in advance of the launch isn't a difficult problem.

If it feels as though we've been talking about this phone for quite awhile, that is because we have. Back in January, we passed along to you a job listing posted by Motorola, seeking a product manager for the "X-phone," and even back then the word was that this handset would let the world know who Motorola's daddy is. The first mention of the phone was just a few days earlier, and back then, it was speculated that the phone would be a high-end model running Key Lime Pie. The handset has gone through quite a few changes since then.

All these months later and we are rapidly approaching the introduction of the model. For your viewing pleasure, look below for the Motorola Moto X done up right in white.

Looks very nice. The back is pretty reminicsent of the HTC One.

A pity with the on-screen buttons and apparently not front Motorola logo that it doesn't have HTC One-like speaker grills.

While it would be awesome to have speakers like the One, if Motorola fixes their goddamn camera I think I'll be satisfied with this phone.

Front facing speakers should be a standard by now, HTC nailed it with that. But, the speaker on the Razr HD from my experience is very good, not One good, but still good.

From the recent announcement by Aptina, the Clarity+ tech that will be used in the Moto X seems like it will be very competitive with the amazing camera on the Galaxy S4, while taking great low light shots like the HTC One and Lumia 920

Say what you want, front speakers are probably the most obvious feature that every manufacturer has missed until recently. Samsung was the first (to my knowledge) to put front speakers on a tablet, which was great, and now HTC is doing it on their phones.

Supreme sound quality is a great thing to have. Plus, you'll never miss a notification again, those things are loud.

While speakers on the front is a good functionality, I'm sure that majority of buyers out there still prefer using a headphone while consuming content. Also, having front facing speakers makes the phone much bigger than it needs to be. I mean, come on, look at the HTC One alongside the Mini, you can barely tell the difference in size. I have a Razr HD and the speaker on the back sounds just fine. I rather a more compact phone than to have a bigger phone just for the benefit of front facing speakers.

I never really used my speakers on my previous phones since they usually kinda suck (omg the G Nexus has pitiful speakers), but lemme tell you, i use them all the time on my One. Don't underestimate its usefulness. Anytime I'm out with friends, sitting outside at a park, on a porch etc, they always ask me to turn on some music or a video on my phone cause it sounds like an actual speaker. Headphones don't work in those scenarios.

There have been so many times where a friend wants to show me a video/listen to a song and we had to do the really awkward sharing of ear buds. Maybe I'm the only one who thinks it's awkward because I'm very strict on my own personal space, but still. If they don't have ear buds, they try to cup their hand around the speaker to try and direct the sound forward, but that's usually ineffective.

Front speakers are well worth the extra dimensions in my opinion. To each his own, I guess.

Yeah, the camera has been Moto's downfall for a while. I hope they step up their game in the camera area. 2013 seems to be the year that cameras become the differentiating feature of smartphones.

Love at 1st sight. Hope the battery meets Motorola's standards. (Yeah by standard I mean 3300mAh+)

That's some bs if its true. I don't care how optimized the os is for good battery life . I've run stock ROMs on my S3 and still can only achieve 4 hours of screen time. If I'm up 18+ hours a day and have moments where I need to be doing stuff on my phone I don't want it dying.. I hope its 2500mah+

That's 100 MAh more than the S3 battery, and the Razr M runs a really long time with a 2000 mAh battery. My coworker's M was at 48 percent after a day and a half off the charger the other day, and just yesterday had gone almost 7 hours, dropping just to 84 percent. He's not exactly a slouch with his phone either.

I hope so too but I doubt it. 2200 isn't terrible though. I plan on underclocking the CPU from day 1.

That battery size is not standard. You have to go MAXX for that kind of capacity. Motorola's "standard" is actually between 1800-2500 mAh.

I think the design is generally bland but I also don't like the fact that the upper bezel is thicker than the lower. It's the lower that needs to be thicker in order to avoid finger strain, not the upper.

The phone that Eric Schmidt was holding had a white back, but black front panel and trim, this render is all white though. That must mean you can choose different colors for the back and front panels, and the trim. Panda colored phones are the best kind of phones.

This looks like a marriage of the iphone 5 and galaxy s4; Seriously, it's the same boring design that htc, samsung, lg, sony, zte, and huawei have been using for that last 2 years.

That's pretty much all smartphone brands. So what are you suggesting then?
