The much-talked-about Moto X has been spotted again. And this time these are not any low-quality spy shots or random leaked photos of possibly Moto X smartphone. This time it is a real deal. The phone made a public appearance at the annual Allen and Co. conference in Sun Valley. The white model of the Moto X was spotted in the hands of Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt, while he made a call during the conference.
If you still pondering over yesterday’s ads teasing the arrival of the customizable Moto X, we have some news that will clarify a few issues. The news comes via ABC News and gives out a few details about the degree of customization of the phone. Assuming that the claim is true, some of you may feel a tad disappointed. Motorola touts the Moto X as being the “first smartphone that you can design yourself”, however, the personalization will not include hardware, which is what many users hoped for.
The day that the much talked about Moto X will finally grace us with its presence is approaching. Motorola itself says it in the very first ad for the phone. The full page ad appeared today (July 3) in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and USA Today. The timing and references to the 4th of July are certainly not coincidental. Motorola is obviously very proud of having designed, engineered and assembled the device on the US soil.
The Motorola X Phone was one of the most mysterious unannounced devices. Notice the use of past tense? Because it no longer is. During a D11 interview, rather unexpectedly, Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside broke the silence and revealed a few details about the device. OK, maybe he did not reveal as much as we would like to hear, but he said enough to get people excited.
This is a surprise of the day. Just when we thought that the Motorola XFON would be exclusive to AT&T, another model, apparently headed to Verizon, pops up. Soon after, another mysterious Motorola phone shows up at the Federal Communication Commission. A phone coming with the model number XT1056 was spotted at the FCC filing sporting support for Sprint’s distinct LTE Band 25.
It is an open secret that the Motorola XT1058, also known as the XFON, is nearing its launch date on AT&T. The phone appeared in benchmarks and FCC filing pointing to AT&T as designated carrier. We have also seen photos of the XFON sporting AT&T logo. Until recently we were led to believe that the device will be exclusive to AT&T. Now a ray of hope appeared for customers on other carriers including Verizon.
Despite of few speculations and renders of the upcoming Motorola X Phone, we still haven’t opportunity to really see how the handset will actually looks like. If rumors and leaks are your thing, we may have something new for you. Today, a series of new images get to our hands that may be the first chance to take a look at the Google’s X Phone. The pictures of the X Phone leaked from the likes of Motorola and AT&T brings a handset surrounded by what looks to be a case, perhaps to hide what it truly looks like. Possibly this is the same phone that was spotted in leaked photos back in March.
Judging by the codenames floating around the web we can see that Motorola is working on at least three new handsets apart from the much talked about X Phone and the Nexus 5. Last week a mysterious never-before-seen device made a surprise appearance at a Vietnamese website. Today, a phone with the same model number XT912A, codenamed “Ghost”, surfaced at GLBenchmark together with a few more details.
Over the last few days we have seen a handful of rumors and leaked images of new Motorola phones coming to the market. One of such mysterious devices was recently seen in Vietnam and captured on camera. Judging by the look, however, it looks like it is not the highly-anticipated Google’s X Phone. This unnamed phone looks like a mid-ranger, at least by today’s standards, and is similar to a device spotted in Brazil earlier.
Here comes a fresh bunch of rumors about the Motorola X. Remember our post from December about the X Phone and X Tablet project? Back then is was just pure speculation and guesses, since all we had was an article from Wall Street Journal suggesting that Motorola and Google might be working on a pure Google device. Now we have some facts and some more rumors which are quite interesting.
Google has achieved indisputable success with its latest Nexus 4 smartphone by LG and tablets Nexus 7 and 10 by Asus, except of the obvious availability problems for such high demand. However, despite of the accomplishment, the company seems to have set its mind on a new bigger project.
