New photos of Motorola Moto X show that the model will employ a nano-SIM card and tray
With only two days left before the Motorola Moto X sees the light of day, some new photos have been leaked, with some of the snapshots confirming that the device will require the use of a nano-SIM card. This has not yet become a standard in the industry, which means that hopefully Motorola includes one in the box. The pictures reveal that a SIM tray will be feeding the nano card into, and sliding it out of, the Moto X. If you're curious about the size of the nano-SIM, ask your buddy wielding the Apple iPhone 5 to show you his (nano-SIM, that is).

As for the actual size of the phone, a comparison shot shows the Motorola Moto X sized up with the Motorola Milestone 3. This is the phone that those in the states would recognize as the Motorola DROID 3. Because the latter has a physical QWERTY keyboard, there is no contest in terms of thickness. The Motorola Moto X is obviously the thinner of the two. And when the two handsets cozy up to each other, you can see that the Moto X is also the taller of the two models. Additionally, the Moto X obviously trumps the DROID 3 in the glass department as it sports a larger screen than the 4 inch display that was used on the DROID 3. In case you're wondering, the Motorola DROID 3 measures up at 123.3mm x 64.1mm.

It's getting more exciting as we get closer to the big day. We wouldn't be surprised to see more leaks leading up to the announcement. And on August 1, we will be covering the Motorola Moto X event so keep it right here for the latest news on the phone.
