Motorola X Phone is on track for Google I/O
The biggest error in the earlier report is on the release window for the device. According to our source, Motorola is working hard to turn the company around since being acquired by Google, and the X Phone is planned to be released around the end of June to early July.
Our source couldn’t comment on a lot of the specs, but did say that the battery is Maxx-sized, which would put it around 3300 mAh, rather than the 4000 mAh in the rumor; and that we shouldn’t expect futuristic materials, but only specifically ruled out flexible displays, not sapphire glass.
We would also add that if the X Phone is on track for a Google I/O announcement and release by July, it’s unlikely that it would have the Snapdragon 800 in it. Remember, Google execs have already tried to cool expectations on the X Phone.
We’re going to be working harder to verify anonymous leaks to make sure we only bring you the best information.

don't care about futuristic materials, just:
1) very very good camera
1) very very good battery
3) 64 GB for camera and navigation!!!! (16 is a stupidity!!!)
enough for me

I hope Motorola is smart enough to lift the carrier specific restrictions on this phone because they seem to only favor Verizon..

Who says Google is releasing two phones at once? The only device I've heard about for summer is the X Phone. The Nexus 5 isn't expected until the holidays.

Thought it was other way around with the nexus 5 for google I/O

Usually that's what used to happen but that changed when Galaxy Nexus was announced (in November instead of June). But we will still see a Nexus device, an upgraded version of Nexus 7, I believe. But not Nexus 5

I think I'll very likely be getting the X... what I really want to see is a new version of Nexus 10 either made by ASUS or Sony.

Asus infinity sucked ass though and the Xperia Tablet Z is already outdated in CPU/GPU, screen, and battery.
Is this some moronic Samsung hate? Sounds like it.

I know how much you like to talk about the past, a pity... but I know It'll take time for you to get over it.

That would be THE LG NEXUS 5 WITH A OLED SCREEN which wil look pretty damn sweet. But as for me I'll wait patientlyfor A SONY NEXUS if they ever make one NEXUS 6 coming soon Jk.

Gahhhh. I get so jacked up when I read the articles that say 'this upcoming phone will have this and this' but then I get bummed when I find out later that 'yeah I guess it wont have this and this'. Oh well. I think that the Motorola Nexus (or whatever it's going to be called) is still going to be awesome. If they expect to turn the company around they have to come up with something better than the rest.
I think the sapphire glass is an unrealistic expectation because it is extremely expensive. I think that they need to focus on the best software possible and also make a device that has top hardware and to make it out of excellent but not extraordinary materials. I guess we'll see what they say at the I/O in May. Google bought Motorola a while ago so they must've spent a lot of time and effort making it. I think we won't be disappointed.

Dude, you're still drunk about the fake Motorola X right?

I'm very curious to see the phone, but I am very content with my Nexus 4, and will be waiting the Nexus 5.

This is or will be a reference device, I hope it comes with a reference "top high-end specs" with also with prestige materials! Well can't expect this from Google cause there phones are mainly hierarchy to softwares! Looks like its only Samsung who will provide or equip with high-end CPU GPU hardwares! Looks like weal wait and see.....

HTC One Nexus, smaller bezel, better battery and it would be the perfect device.

I wish to see a phone with a snapdragon S800. Not saying for this one, but any. It would be so great to have all four cores clocked at 2,3GHz :)

Man I've been through all the Red phones & stayed with my 'ol Droid 3. Yea I've used the M, Note II, Iphone 5 so I know the improvements. But I'm following this Since I figure Moto & G are going to make "the Phone". Stay with it, Good report, need more.
