Google's Eric Schmidt photographed using Motorola Moto X

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 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 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.

I'd take a Motorola-built One clone with nearly stock Android for $100 subsidized!

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.
