The Moto X rumor flood threatens to drown us, as images of the rear panel surface

The Moto X rumor flood threatens to drown us, as images of the rear panel surface
By now, we think you'll agree – 'leak' is no longer a sufficiently-descriptive word for what we're seeing. This is a flood. And it shows no signs of slowing down.

Anyhow, Weibo user houdabao has released some interesting snaps of the purported Moto X. As is the nature of these trickles of information, there's no telling whether what we're seeing is, in fact, the real deal or not. Regardless, bar a very eloquent hoax, the photos do appear to hold up to scrutiny – the snaps are obviously of the same device that we've been looking at for the past few days. This time, however, we finally have a clear peak at the rear of the customizable device – the black appears to bear a nice matte touch, whereas the white version sports a textured finish that we just loved.

Enough talk, make haste and head for the gallery, for we're sure you'll like what you see.

You fanboys are hilarious. Google, through Motorola, wants to expand its presence in China and India, which collectively make up a third of the World's population. More importantly, you don't tackle these markets with expensive hardware and inflated profit margins; that would be suicide. No, I think this is simply a low-end dual-sim model designed to compete with handsets from Samsung, ZTE, and Nokia.

I wish the trend of putting the main speaker on the bottom (like iPhone) or on the front (Htc One) would carry over to other manufactures.

Some people have dismissed the One's dual speakers as a gimmick, but I gotta give them creativity points.

SIM 1 and SIM 2 ? Is this a dual sim phone? Anyway I hoped it would be a premium designe device. It doesn't seem that way with the removable plastic cover.

So stop posting leaked images and show the real deal. This was months ago: You're welcome.

That's the sort of customization people here would get behind. 1 or 2 GB RAM, 16, 32, or 64 GB storage. As long as the pricing is fair.

that's what I'm praying for 64GB!

Anyone else notice the apparent lack of microSD?

Well it could be near the battery, these images imply removable back right?

I assume interchangeable back plates, but why would the SIM be on the side and the microSD be under the back?

Moto belongs to Google so I coukd see all of the new moto devices having no micro SD card slot

being a Google influenced device it probably won't have a microSD Card slot.

That was my assumption as well, and with only 16 GB on board... but they could easily sell 16 or 32 GB with a $50 difference twixt the two. It's just that everyone here argues that a phone without a microSD is DOA.

I try too take a closer look. but I'm sure we all know Motorola don't uses SD CARD which I say they should add on their. might be the SIM CARD SLOT

Where did you hear Motorola doesn't use SD cards? The Droid Razr, Razr (Maxx) HD, and Razr M all have micro SD card support. Though, with the Moto X being a Google device, it won't have a micro SD card slot.
