Fully assembled Motorola Moto X leaks, all black

Fully assembled Motorola Moto X leaks, all black
The Motorola Moto X is said to mark a switch from the current focus on hardware and specs in smartphones and Android in particular to more of a discussion about functionality. Still, hardware matters and looks do too, and that’s why we've excitingly followed leaks and rumors about the upcoming Moto X.

This latest leak coming from China finally shows a fully assembled Moto X for the first time. This is the black color version. Just as on previous leaks, you’d notice the signature three-line speaker grill on the back, the centered camera with single LED flash and Motorola’s logo below it.

You’d also notice the phone has got its 3.5mm headphone jack centered on top and its second microphone right next to it.

What we can say is the obvious - the plastic on the Moto X looks a bit on the cheap side, but it’s at least a matte one so it won’t catch fingerprints. We have already seen back plates of the handset come in different colors, so that should be an awesome way to refresh the looks of it.

If the phone is assembled in Texas... then why are the leaks coming from a Chinese site?

Why is this phone leaking from China when Motorola already stated last week that this would be an "All American" device??? It was supposed to be designed, assembled & modified in the United States...

Maybe they wised up and realized "made in America" is just a slogan with an expensive price tag on it.

It's not expensive to make things here in America, it just means less padding for CEO pockets. The more millions they can save overseas, the bigger the mansion they can build. We got to stop blaming American workers for CEO greed.

You know why that's expensive? Safety, working reasonable hours, being treated humanely. If 1/10 of the stuff that happened in those Chinese factories happened here, there'd be an uproar because we treat our citizens as valuable, not disposable. But then you sound like someone who'd prefer something made by workers treated badly to save yourself $20.

I could be wrong here, but if memory serves me correctly, I think it said "Assembled in America". If that's the case then I'm sure everything was manufactured overseas with just the final assembly here in the US. Carefully worded ad to evoke American pride in Moto's devices. I really hope that it's "All American" because God knows we need the jobs, but I have very little faith in American companies to do what will help Americans.

It's still worth noting though. And it's not at all uncommon in the manufacturing world. Look at the window sticker of any car in the US. They have to specify % US, % Japan, % China etc. parts, engine source, and final assembly location. Similarly, for the Moto X they'll manufacture the components all over Asia, then assemble the final product here. It's a global economy, we shouldn't expect more than marginal US manufacturing.

Youre always free to get your news some place else if PA's speed is a problem. Some of us come here for a different perspective on the tech we like, not for get it now, get it fast reporting.

Whoa, looks massive, hopefully sporting a good sized battery and large camera sensor.

it looks quite cheap n chubby. but if it comes at 300$ as rumoured its quite a good deal

If they made it chubby to put in it a massive battery I don't mind the thickness. I prefer for the phone to last me all day, then to be made thin and have me searching for a plug by mid day.

This is the cheap(er), international, dual SIM variant of the Moto X. The 'main stream' one is thinner with what seems to be a higher quality plastic. The speaker is on the other side (to make room for the second SIM card) which is the giveaway here.

If what you said is correct, and the photo above is the motorola X, than this phone leaked by vietnam website (in march) is really the motorola X. Here's the video (with english subtitle) youtube.com/watch?v=3x8eKBFttro The specs matches what the evleaks says (1.7 GHz dual-core, 720p screen, 2gb ram.) Very mediocre specs. So thumbs up for the vietnam website!

Yup. You are correct. I've seen that video many times before. It make sense considering Motorola said they were sick of the spec race and would use features to differentiate itself, not a spec race.

I so so wish companies would STOP putting speaker on the back is very bad design. I hope the Camera is excellent in day light & low light then this could be my next phone, I dont like all these Massive 5" screen phones.

11. InspectorGadget80 unregistered

That's what I'm looking at too is the camera. Wish they would show the front.

27. roldefol

Yeah, but if this is to be an affordable phone ($300-400 US unlocked), should we expect a stellar camera, or just adequate?

Ha, got me checking French slang, did not know this one! The real story with the Moto X is about customization, though, keep that in mind.

5. FlushGordon unregistered

I don't see the point of hardware customization tbh, why can't they just slap the most powerful hardware there is ATM and come up with a really competitive price Customers care only for one thing, and that is the price...if it's really worth what they're spending

How many kids do you have? Daughters, more specifically. Most kids (and diva wives) care about style. Price has little to do with it...
