Moto X in black and white shows up in possible press images

Moto X in black and white shows up in possible press images
We're less than a week away from the official announcement for the Motorola Moto X, so it's about time the leaks shift from rumors to real stuff. And, with that in mind, leaker extraordinaire @evleaks has put out what look to be the first press images of the Moto X wearing both black and white.

Of course, black and white are the two options that will be available directly through carriers, while the other multitude of color options, as well as the possible choice of material for the backplate, will only be available if you buy the device directly from Motorola/Google. 

It hasn't yet been confirmed, but these images do look like press shots of the device. If nothing else, this should show the device in its final state, rather than the various prototype models that we've seen leaked over the past couple months.

Lets do this, if you are interested or remotely interested in this phone, read the articles. If you are not, just keep it moving, and go read articles about Fairy.

Lol. Now some of you fan boys are praising this device having an optimized dual core. While on some nokia articles, all you did was to hate the 1020... Im actually impressed by this phone so far. I really liked the design given that it's simple and has a minimalistic look. The software also looks so much stock. Theyve nailed it with this one even if not going with what most oems did, going with spec wars. People should start realizing that it's all not about the number of cores or the largest ppi or largest battery. It's all about getting the balance between those three. Specs race is a game played only by people who just want to brag their products.

Worst place for a primary microphone... All the look and grace is compromised

I'm not so bothered by the speaker grill -- at least the back is curved, so it won't be muffled like it is on the S4 or Nexus 4 etc. What does bother me is that the bottom is thin. Since people will constantly be shifting their hand to the lower half of the phone to have easier access to the on-screen buttons, having the top half of the phone thicker and presumably heavier is just begging for a good, hard drop. I'd rather take uniform thickness and maybe a tiny counterweight if it's still lighter than the top half.

I would like it more if it doesn't those little small dots. I like the one with a smooth back cover, like the one Google's CEO (forgot his name) was using. Beside, they want this phone to be know by people, not for specs geek, so more leaks would be understandable. But I want surprise too!

And if this phone release with 4.2.2, then I have a problem with it. It should released with 4.3, or provide update a week after official release. Or else I really doubt about its future update support.

Stop posting the same article from a week ago we all saw the phone. I'm waiting till Aug 1st for full press release and I want the batter life info.

The design has grown on me overtime, it still isn't as nice looking as the htc one, or iphone 5 or xperia z.....but it looks nice

This phone has more innovation in it than every other flagship this year combined. Too bad they didn't back up that nice software with good hardware.

Well if you think about it, the iPhone 5 only has a dual-core processor at 1.3 GHz. The main reason why people don't really question the iPhone's hardware is because the software is optimized for it. In this case, I feel that Motorola and Google have truly optimized the software to be used with this type of hardware. So, it should feel as fluid and fast as a quad-core phone but with just two cores instead. I would be willing to buy this device if the price is right. They could (not to say that they will) offer the device closer to the $200 mark. I think that would be amazing if they did and would potentially garner more market share for Android. Since Motorola is owned by Google, they can definitely take the hit. It would also be a huge seller because they could point out that the specifications of the device are on par, if not better, than the iPhone 5. They could also say the device is offered at the same price as the iPhone 5 but with no contract or subsidy needed. At least if I was in charge of Motorola that is what I would do.

I'm not crazy to downgrade my hTc One with this! Even with my gnote 2. We need to look forward not backward.

I would wait until the official announcement before you make a decision. I never suggested that you "downgrade" at all. If anything, you could buy this device in addition to your normal headset because it will be affordable off-contract.

I'm here to read the article and some comments, sorry fellas, don't want to hurt your feelings! If this Moro x is optimize with the software, how much more those two I mention above are more capable to do.

I'm sorry could you repeat the question? I have no idea what you are saying.

Sounds like another spec junky. This phone is rumored to enhance the experience of the device the way that 95% of user use it.

If your one of those people that just uses facebook and text its fine but if you do any sort of gaming or intensive task you will want the latest and greatest.

The iPhone 5 seems to have the "lastest and greatest" games and it does fine. In fact, rumors suggest that Apple is going to continue to offer dual-core chipsets in the iPhone and keep the quad-core chipsets for the iPad. I mean the device will have an Adreno 320 GPU which should be able to play any modern mobile game just fine.

What's bad about the hardware? In fact, the hardware is pretty awesome. Have read the articles on the chip they're using? I think you should take a closer look at the hardware they're using. Might actually surprise and wow you. Motorola X 8 - 8 cores.

"This phone has more innovation in it than every other flagship this year combined." You have gotta be bloody kidding me. All innovations combined? If you combine all the innovations done till now, this is what you'd get:- A HTC One with all of Samsung's new features + microSD card slot + Exmor RS with OIS + 4.7" 1080p Super AMOLED + Over 3000 mAh battery + Snapdragon 800 and more.
