Enjoy a peek at the side profile of the Motorola Moto X
We've seen the Motorola Moto X pictured from many different angles and now we have a photo in a new tweet from @evleaks that shows the side profile of the unit. Motorola will be introducing the phone on August 1st in New York City and while the customization of the phone has been the main selling point of the model so far, no less than Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside has intrigued us with his talk about sensors on the handset that will know at times where the phone is, and make adjustments accordingly.

According to Woodside, the Motorola Moto X will know if it is in a car moving 60mph and will automatically turn on the speakerphone. We've also seen the video from Canadian carrier Rogers showing how a twist of the wrist opens the camera application. A tweet from Motorola itself hinted at a fast shutter speed for the camera that will help users take pictures of action shots.

All of these features will be necessary to help the phone stay afloat in a sea of high end models like the Samsung Galaxy S4, Sony Xperia Z, HTC One and the upcoming LG G2

We can expect to see some more information about the phone leak as we get closer to August 1st.

I'm happy Moto is back in the game, but they really need a flagship device soon.

I think too many people are misunderstanding the intentions behind this phone. It's supposed to be a balance of good hardware, great software, and accessible price. Motorola will have a phone with really cutting edge specs, but it's not the Moto X. I predict the phone will be ~400 -- a solid 200 less than typical top end flagship, but with a balance of decent hardware and great software that people would expect from Google. I think this is a flagship device, but not defined by cutting edge specs. We'll see if they can deliver. If the rumor that this phone could've been canned months back was true, we'll know once it's in the hands of people.

If this phone is $250 to $300 off contract and runs silky smooth like the Nexus 4 sign me up.

how high is that peak?

Google, you done the job right, 720x1280p is the perfect way to attract developer, 2gb ram as most secure, assembled with a very comfy material, together with the responsive ui, and a midrange price... Moto finally wow me... high end phone is so overkill these days, where people don't wanna pay extra for nothing new... Mind as well reserved the premium feel from high end and put it to the midrange phone with the midrange price...

My exact thoughts. I really don't need a quad core or whatever high end specs are being thrown around today. I really don't want a huge screen. Price this phone well and I am sold. Especially with my plans to upgrade fairly often, this phone doesn't have to last me 2 years. 6 months to a year tops. These specs will get me there while not costing me a large amount of money.

Yea man dual core 1.5 ghz is plenty to run a phone or a tablet and also 2gb of ram is good, I dont really feel comfortable paying an extra 350$ for an inch of screen and 2 cores

This thing is even a dual core 1.73 ghz processor. The MSM8960T also has the adreno 320 which is more than enough power for a 720P display. This thing should chug along quite nicely. I'm also betting on it being very popular with the dev crowd meaning custom roms and tweaks. I haven't been this excited about a phone a in long time.

if the price @ $99 on cotract and $599 SIM free, will you considered?

13. Captain_Doug

Posts: 1037; Member since: Feb 10, 2012

Nope. $400 or under. I'm expecting $250-$300.

A quad core A7 mediatek with 2gb ram runs android butter smooth...

$300 seems a wishful thinking

Well, this is Google's device that will be sold in the Play Store, if they can price the Nexus 4 at $350, I'm sure they can put the Moto X at $300.

22. wendygarett unregistered

The pricing will depend solely for the motorola favor, it's been a years moto faced uncounted loss, do you really think moto can be priced so cheap? Although it will available in Google play store... But $99 on contract will sound more promising

Agreed...To what I get, that Google is making a statement that they can deliver great devices @much cheaper rates. They are targeting the common man who prefer a decent specs problem-free phone at a low price to serve their daily needs. For that this is IDEAL. Also, people must remember that Google announced that Android 5.0 will be optimized for low specs devices (Although there is no issue for Android on High spec devices, presently low spec devices do not run android+OEM's skin very smoothly). This phone is definitely an experiment to see how low end devices perform with Android 4.3 now & later when it shall be updated to 5.0. Its definitely not a flagship device but Google has optimized it to work better with Dual core (quadrant benchmarks are better than nexus4 which is quadcore). This device shall be launched at around $250-350 which is the BEST for the needs of millions out there. Besides no other phones are available at this price with Dual-core coupled with 2GB RAM & 10MP camera.

An inner voice tells me those specs are not so bad and the look is great. ill buy it with a price tag of $250-$300 off-contract.

I find funny how people think this isn't a flagship phone from Nokia, just because it has a 720p screen and a dual core processor. Nokia 1020 has both, even the much weaker chip under the hood, yet no one is calling it a midrange device!

It is a midrange device not a flagship.

that uneven thickness from top to bottom means one thing to me : ( making space for a good size battery)

If this phone has LTE, doesn't that mean it will cost more than the Nexus 4?

25. JojoGo101

Yes and no, because the Moto X uses a dual core S4 Pro, I'd reckon that it's cheaper than the Quad core version.

23. InspectorGadget80 unregistered

Love the curve edge on the X phone. But I'm still waiting till Aug 1st for FULL n final specs before anyone give out anymore rumors.
