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.

That's great design and it looks pretty good but i don't think so its a Moto X. If it's then it's lovely.

Looks like a combination of HTC ONe And S4 back design.

If this doesn't come out by the end of July, I'm buying something else. Please come out now, you look like a masterpiece. D:

August 23rd was the release date for the Moto X on Verizon's road map, and Verizon usually gets broadly available phones last (HTC One and Galaxy S4 for example), so late July might be an accurate launch date prediction. If not, it'll definitely be early August. Also, from your profile, you have a Nexus 4. Why would you replace it with the Moto X? Just curious.

The design, it's gorgeous, The Nexus 4 FEELS good but it's design is uninspiring, I don't like that. Besides, the specs of the Moto X could better than the likes of the Nexus 4.

I don't see why you would downgrade in terms of specifications just because of design. The Moto X's specs have been all but confirmed; it has a smaller screen than the Nexus 4 and essentially the same processor but uses the dual core variant of the S4 Pro instead of the quad core S4 Pro in the Nexus 4.

That's like the nexus 7 refresh, The K009 is unconfirmed and not accurate. I'll wait for official news first.

I can't tell if it's just my crappy work laptop or maybe some artifact from the picture (maybe even just my eyesight), but in the closer up 2nd image does the back seem to have a faint criss-cross pattern of carbon fiber, or perhaps a texture for grip?

It's not just you. There's definitely a crosshatched grip pattern on the back. Nice catch.

Lucky guy. And Verizon is not carrying the same X PHONE like Eric have.

Posts: 4745; Member since: Jan 28, 2011

Not yet, at least. What's your fixation with Verizon though? It's a new Motorola. The Moto X is coming to 3 of the 4 major carriers, plus regional carriers.

51. InspectorGadget80 unregistered

because they always get the MOTOROLA phones FIRST before anyone else does. like the RAZR HD/MAXXX

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.
